YouTube Channel Review

In the 1970s, Pastors Rick and Kay Warren moved from Texas to California to start a church. What began as Bible studies out of their tiny apartment has grown to more 10 campuses in different cities throughout California, with thousands of attendees.

And as their church has grown, so has their children’s ministry: Saddleback Kids. In 2014, the program launched its YouTube channel, and it has become a place where Saddleback Kids’ weekly Bible stories are gathered together.

Kids will learn about creation, stories about particular Bible characters, as well as larger spiritual concepts such as parables, miracles and what it means to have daring faith.

Videos are divided into digestible categories that are fun and captivating: Color Time, Animated Bible Stories, Animated Bible Stories for Toddlers, Elementary Series and Early Childhood Series.

Positive Content

These Bible stories are a fun way for kids to learn about Jesus and Biblical concepts. They’re entertaining and are aimed at a preschool and elementary audience.

Not all Bible stories are suitable for the littlest of viewers, of course. But Saddleback Kids has its videos helpfully divided into sections for appropriate age ranges, which makes viewing choices easier.

Content Concerns


Channel Summary
