While working with teenagers at Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN, Abb Thomas discovered that in order to have a great teen ministry, he needed to develop an exceptional children’s ministry. After refining many ideas and overcoming countless obstacles, he developed Master Clubs, a discipleship ministry for children. But unlike other children’s discipleship materials, he developed Master Clubs to go beyond just teaching children the truths of the Bible, and actually help children apply and live out those truths.

In 1973, Abb Thomas and his family began shipping out materials to churches with this same vision for discipling children. Then in 1978, his church hosted the first national competition event for kids. Since that time, churches around the world have been using Master Clubs to disciple and evangelize children for Christ.
