More About The Challenge

The Ten Commandments Speech Challenge is a powerful tool to help believers and the church reach out to children and youth in our world and culture. By the power and promise of God’s Word, it can really make a very productive impact in and on the lives of our youth.

This project is a tool and means to disciple children and youth with one of the most fruitful and powerful teaching tools in all of the Word of God. In our world which seems to be set on fire by the kingdom of darkness, the genuine answer is the powerful water of the Word of God (John 4:14; John 7:37-39; Ephesians 5:26; Isaiah 55:1).

The Ten Commandments are found in full in Exodus 20 and in Deuteronomy 5. They share God’s moral law, His great wisdom, and provide insight for living a life that honors God.
