Targeted at school-going kids, the “I Am John Wesley” comic book is a collection of 15 stories about the Founder of Methodism, John Wesley, his life and his teachings.  Written by Sister Yeo Cher Eng, illustrated by Sister Lois Chng, and edited and translated into English by Sister Ong Puay See, the comic series was birthed as a work of love by a team of dedicated Methodist sisters from CAC Churches, who shared the same Wesleyan heart to serve God.

The launch of the “I Am John Wesley” comic series this year (2022) also celebrates CAC’s hosting of the World Federation of Chinese Methodist Churches (WFCMC)’s 8th Missions Conference.  Through this comic, we hope to celebrate the missional spirit of our Methodist founder, John Wesley, and pass on his legacy to the next generation.

At the same time, the CAC Board of Discipleship and Nurture (BDN) has also developed a set of Chinese Sunday School teaching resources based on this comic book. Through these activity guides, we hope that our young Methodists can come to better understand the spirit of Methodism and practise Christian living. The free digital resources come in 3 variations, meant for use by children from 3 different age groups: 1) Kindergarten, 2) Lower Primary (Pri 1-3), and 3) Upper Primary (Pri 4-6). Download, print and use them with the children as you like!
