CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH THE DREAM TEAM is designed to help CEKids become acquainted with the twelve followers of Jesus who changed the world. Some have said the DREAM TEAM behaved more like the NIGHTMARE TEAM but each man had a special purpose in God's redemption plan. Whether we know a little or a lot about a particular apostle, we must admit that Jesus planned His choices with great care and worked with these men as if the life of the world depended upon them. He was right!
