The comic strip “Preacher’s Kids” appeared in March 2001 in a local newspaper in Sevier County, Tennessee. The strip has remained active over the years, connecting with the Baptist Press, national and international newspapers, churches, ministry projects, educational materials and more. With the publication of “Preacher's Kids on the Trail of: Faithfulness” (published by WestBow Press) Dr. David Ayers, creator of the “Preacher’s Kids” comic strip, brings the characters together for their first book appearance.

Aaron and John David – the Preacher’s Kids – are on a journey to find the meaning of faithfulness. They postulate that being faithful is a choice. But they are faced with their own tough choices, and they must choose wisely as they get ready to celebrate Aaron’s birthday. “I was still in shock that Dad bought me the jersey for being faithful. Then I realized that Dad was right, faithfulness is not forgotten. God remembers our good deeds just like Dad did and rewards us because He loves us.”

The overall theme of the book, the author says, is “… to remind readers about one of the most vital keys to spiritual success: being faithful.” He goes on to say, “‘Preacher's Kids on the Trail of: Faithfulness’ contains a positive spiritual message and encourages readers to continue in faith even when life is challenging.”

The ministry of “Preacher’s Kids” comics has been blessed with opportunities to bring a smile, a chuckle and a reminder that pleasing Christ means approaching Him with childlike faith.
