About the Book

Are your children ready to live out their faith in the real world?

Most parents who value Christian faith want their children to enjoy a vibrant, growing relationship with God, both now and throughout their lives. But did you know fewer than ten percent of Christian families engage with one another for the purpose of encouraging or informing their growing faith? And not even one percent can show a written plan that even briefly describes the spiritual direction they are praying for and working toward together.

Do Your Children Believe? appears at a time when a similar moment in history doesn’t sound so incredibly far-fetched: “There arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done” (Judges 2:10 esv).

Imagine, instead, a generation of your family who knows God with intimate familiarity. Kids who can tell you what they believe and why it matters. Teenagers who handle adversity with the resilient joy of godly wisdom. A family who prays together and worships together and passes these practices along to the next generation.

Inside this book, author Terence Chatmon offers his proven step-by-step process to create a personalized plan that works for children of all ages, even those who are grown and have families of their own. He shares the successes from his many workshop participants and stories of how he, his wife, and children put their plan into living action with remarkable blessings in tow.

These strategies have been home-tested by 100,000 parents.










About the Author


Terence Chatmon, a successful senior executive in corporate America, served in leadership roles with several Fortune 50 companies, including Johnson & Johnson, Citibank, and Coca-Cola, but he was failing to become the spiritual leader of his home. He was challenged by his wife to chart a course for the spiritual growth of his family and children. After much prayer, he took what he knew from his corporate-world success and biblical teaching to develop one of the world’s most transformational step-by-step family spiritual development processes.

Terence is now a family legacy champion, and his family discipleship workshop, Charting Your Family’s Spiritual Course, has reached more than sixty thousand participating families and continues to grow. He is the president of EQUIP and The John Maxwell Leadership Foundation, a network of leaders mobilized to reach people with the gospel. EQUIP uses training conferences, personal relationships, and a rich library of resources to equip and mobilize leaders in 196 countries to see transformation through a values-based roundtable methodology.

A Chicago native and graduate of the University of Illinois, Terence brings drive and ingenuity to every role he plays in life, as an elder at a prominent eight-thousand-member mega-church, a Bible study teacher, a chaplain and most importantly a husband and father.
