After receiving Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts, many children are invited back to participate in the discipleship program, called The Greatest Journey. Through this 12 lesson course, which includes Bible stories and Scripture memorization, they learn to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family. More than 23.3 million children have enrolled in this program since 2009.
After completing The Greatest Journey, children attend a graduation celebration and receive a certificate. Most importantly, they are given a New Testament. Complete with illustrations, it is often the first copy of God’s Word the child, or their family, will own.
