Butch Vernon chats with Jon Melin, founder of By Design Ministries International, to discuss “Ministry in A Backpack: Sower’s Set”. This is a powerful tool to aid those who have been trained in STS. Through the use of flannelgraph visuals, a Bible story is further locked into the hearts and minds of those discussing the story.


Today’s show:

  • Explanation of “Ministry in A Backpack: Sower’s Set”
  • Simply The Story style Bible story flannelgraphs
  • Impact of Sower’s Set and By Design Visuals ministry


In this episode, Jon Melin emphasizes the powerful combination of Simply The Story (STS) and the incredible flannelgraphs of By Design Visuals. The relationship has impacted India, Nepal and many more places in South East Asia. Jon explains how the 7 stories for the "Sower's Set" were chosen and the next 3 stories (Christmas stories: God Announces the Coming of the Savior, Joseph’s Dream, and Good News of Great Joy!) are soon to come.
