Taking the Stand
For over 15 years, Ministry Ideaz has provided Jehovah’s Witnesses with supplies to support their ministry. Through its e-commerce platform, Ministry Ideaz sells a wide variety of spiritual products, including films such as Taking the Stand.
Taking the Stand is a 30-minute documentary and accompanying e-book highlighting the experiences of nine Holocaust survivors. It provides a first-hand look into the lives of some of the people who suffered unimaginable cruelty under the Nazi regime because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs. Between themselves, the nine people were interned in 54 different camps and institutions and imprisoned for a combined 44 years.
The people in the film include Renee Firestone, whose family was killed in concentration camps, Hermine Liska, who was forced into the Nazi’s indoctrination program but did not give in to its propaganda, and Adolf Burger, a survivor of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It also includes Richard Rudolph, a man who was imprisoned for 19 years by two German dictatorships.
These people open up about their life experiences while answering questions posed by students from 30 countries around the world. Their answers offer younger generations lessons on history and the power of faith.
Bible Question Game

The Kids Service Record Booklet, for example, provides parents and children with the perfect tool for tracking the service accomplishments of young Jehovah’s Witnesses. The booklet’s 12 service-record sheets have been carefully designed with young children in mind, favoring simplicity and encouraging children to track their service activities on their own. The booklet further encourages child engagement through a number of coloring opportunities that help to keep track of service reports from the field. Similarly, a collection of illustrations helps children understand what aspect of service is being tracked, from video demonstrations to return visits.
The Kids Service Record Booklet is a perfect fit for children who enjoy reading and engaging with other service-based products from Ministry Ideaz, such as My Bible Story Puzzle Book or the Fun Kids Activity Workbook.
Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses
For the past 15 years, Ministry Ideaz has been producing thoughtfully designed and well-made products for the Jehovah’s Witnesses community from its headquarters in Ecuador. In addition to its classic range of portfolios, Bible covers, and bookbags, Ministry Ideaz is producing several specially designed items in support of the 2018 Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, including themed refrigerator magnets, notebooks, and pens for children and adults.
A three-day event packed with discussion and activities, the annual Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses features talks and interviews, multimedia performances, and public Bible discourse in regional locations around the country. The free event is open to everyone.
Each of the three days of the convention focuses on a different verse from the Bible. This year, the Friday events reflect the spirit of Joshua 1:7, “Be courageous and very strong,” and includes a symposium on the need for courage among Christians. On Saturday, the theme centers on the verse, “Showing all the more courage to speak the word of God fearlessly” (Philippians 1:14), with talks and presentations exploring the courageousness of Jehovah’s Witnesses in their work in countries around the world. Sunday will feature activities based on the message of Psalm 27:14: “Be courageous and strong of heart. Yes, hope in Jehovah.”
The 2018 Convention will feature multiple three-day events at different times throughout the year depending on your location. To find upcoming dates for a location near you, please visit www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/conventions.
For nearly two decades, Ministry Ideaz has provided the global Jehovah’s Witnesses population with an array of helpful, visually arresting handcrafted products. More recently, Ministry Ideaz has expanded its offerings to include Bible software and music recordings.
One popular music offering is Bible Songs for Sharing, a digital download consisting of 10 children’s songs written to help young minds understand and appreciate lessons from the Bible. Tracks include Sharing and Giving, When Paradise Comes, A Time to Choose, and A Way to Stay Alive. Bible Songs for Sharing was composed in direct response to the popularity of the album Bible Songs, as well as the specific need for music geared toward older children.
The Ministry Ideaz website also carries the digital download for the original Bible Songs album, a series of entertaining, educational songs that help children memorize practical information such as the names and order of the books of the Bible and offers nuanced lessons about living one’s life in a Christian manner.
Established in 2002, Ministry Ideaz has earned a reputation as a provider of high-quality, handcrafted ministry items for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Beginning with Bible and book covers, Ministry Ideaz has expanded its offerings to include videos, music, educational software, and a diverse array of family games.
Designed to support families in their worship, these books, games, and activities engage the entire family in spiritual study. The Tag-On Bible crossword board game, for example, is a Scrabble-like game that lets players earn points for spelling out important words from the Bible, while JW Word Scramble is a fast-paced Bible word game that can be played alone or with friends via a mobile app. The innovative House2House Board Game for Jehovah’s Witnesses encourages family bonding through interactive play, promoting Scriptural study in a way that’s fun and family-oriented. Additional options such as Bible puzzle books and activity books with crossword puzzles and word scrambles provide valuable tools to help families develop entertaining and educational family worship nights.
Watchtower Magazine tote
Online company Ministry Ideaz has offered quality ministry supplies geared specifically to the needs of Jehovah’s Witnesses for over 15 years. One of the most popular Ministry Ideaz items is the hands free Watchtower Magazine tote.
During ministry work, you’ll have to involve your hands in many activities such as reviewing house records, recording return visits, and even leafing through pages of the Bible to find scripture. With most leather bags and handbags, it’s almost impossible to coordinate these activities while carrying your essentials. That’s where the Watchtower Magazine tote comes in.
The Watchtower Magazine tote is completely hands-free. It was designed with a focus on the body’s natural ergonomics so that the shoulder strap balances the tote’s weight across the body without changing the carrier’s natural posture or hindering movement. It has multiple compartments allowing carriers to store and even compartmentalize items such as Bibles, magazines, brochures, and tablets. Its hands-free design also makes it well suited for preaching using sign language. Versatile and convenient, the magazine tote is suitable for Jehovah’s Witnesses carrying on ministry work in any territory and during any weather conditions.
Ministry Ideaz has 15 years of experience in providing Jehovah’s Witnesses with quality products that help them organize materials and carry and protect Bibles and tracts. One popular Ministry Ideaz item is the foil-embossed leather or leatherette cover for “Jesus – The Way the Truth, the Life.”
Designed to fit the exact measurements of the “Jesus – The Way the Truth, the Life” Congregation Bible Study publication, the cover has a practical purpose in preventing pages from becoming snagged or torn in a briefcase or bag. Its handmade elements include carefully stitched seams that are resin glued to provide added durability. Features include a pair of velvet page-marker ribbons and pockets on the front and back inside covers, and a version with a zippered enclosure is also available.
Fitting the book within the leather cover begins with folding the spine and running fingers inside the cover to make sure that the pockets are opened to accept the book covers. “Breaking in” the cover in this manner ensures a snug fit and years of dependable service.
My Bible Story Puzzle Book
For nearly 15 years, Ministry Ideaz has offered customers an array of high-quality Jehovah’s Witness products and services. Ministry Ideaz provides materials across a variety of subjects and age ranges, including young children.

All puzzles are rooted in Biblical stories and verses derived from both Hebrew and Greek scriptures. My Big Book of Bible Puzzles is a great tool for road trips or an evening of family worship. This book and other Just 4 Kidz products can be found online at www.ministryideaz.com.
