Have you enjoyed the stories about Christian heroes on the Torchlighter DVDs? Get the most out of your DVD collection with the Torchlighter supplementary resources and features below.
The 30-minute animated Torchlighter episodes share the main parts of each faith hero’s story, but there’s so much more to tell! Torchlighter documentaries are intended to equip adults to answer questions kids might have, but once their interest is piqued, many children also enjoy the documentaries. Livestream the documentaries here.
2. Leader’s Guides
Free Bible-based lesson plans help teachers and parents make the most of the Torchlighter videos. The lessons begin with a Scripture focus, then weave together the elements and tools to make lesson planning easy. The guides include ice-breakers, applications, and everything in between. Find them in the Downloads section or on Torchlighters Curriculum Page.
3. Student’s Guides
Torchlighter student’s guides coordinate with the leader’s guides, but can also be used independently by kids. The guides feature puzzles, crafts, thought-provoking questions, coloring-pages and more. Find them in the Downloads section or on Torchlighters Curriculum Page.
4. Spanish Language Tracks
All Torchlighter episodes come with a professional Spanish language track. Many are translated into additional languages as well, with more to come. The producer of the Torchlighters is from Costa Rica, and many of the episodes are hand drawn in a studio there.
Torchlighter DVDs include subtitles in both Spanish and English, allowing you to use them in multiple ministry settings. Native speakers are cast for in-country roles as often as possible, which means some characters have accents that may be difficult to understand on the first viewing. Subtitles make it easier.
6. Quizzes, Puzzles, and Coloring Pages
