Finding quality, faith-based entertainment for kids is a huge challenge. I’ll be honest, my 6-year-old son is a YouTube kids’ addict. The minute he’s he feels my focus slipping, you can bet he's grabbing his neon green foam-encased iPad, and watching as many YouTube Kids' videos as he can. In some ways, I appreciate his addiction. I can get more done, but I know it's also sort of ruining him.
You Tube Kids’ is by far the most popular kid’s app on the Internet. It’s garbage, and it is not safe! That is why JCFilms is launching a new creative initiative to create more faith-based kids programing.
JCFilms Kids is a safe streaming, video-on-demand platform that will provide creative and imaginative programming just for kids.
Now, we can have the debate that all television for kids is damaging, but the facts are that television plays a central role in children’s everyday lives.
The reality is that almost all American families have at least one TV set, and the average kid ages five to eight years old watches almost three hours of television. So, why not change what they are watching.
“For the next several months, we’re going to be reaching out to creative Christian teachers and parents to guide us in developing original Christ-centered and entertaining content for kids. In addition, we want to recruit churches to help in creating the programming,” Jason Campbell, President of JCFilms said.
As kids’ church programs are getting more creative and technical, Campbell believes he can harness these creative programs as television or video segments.
“So many children’s church ministries are developing wonderful programing, I’d like to capture those programs and turn them into kid friendly and faith inspired episodes,” Campbell said.
If you or your church would like to learn more about this program, or have an idea for a please call Jason Campbell at 304-906-5957.
