Devotions for Young Disciples is intended for kids from age 8 to 12 and their parents. The primary goal of author Matthew J. Cochran is to partner with parents in ministry to children. To that end, this book serves as a starting point for teaching children about the nature and character of God, about sin and forgiveness, the Bible, and our place in God's big plan.
Matthew J. Cochran is a devoted father of three and Marine (1998-2003) who finds his calling in leading people into a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ. His approach to this is two-fold: shine light on the supremacy of Christ through the Gospel and lead others to trust God in all things.
Matt has served in children’s ministry, new believers’ ministry, and young adults ministry over the years. His experience leading Marines, helping to plant new churches and with discipling young people has allowed the Spirit to open Matt's eyes to the need for servant leadership and helping others to serve Christ with compassion. He’s passionate about being a dad, eating great food, and spending time with the love of his life, Sarah.
