Our Heart

Connect

We bring together people called to lead children and connect them to great resources and training.

Serve

Our ministry exists to serve under-resourced children’s workers and to challenge people to serve the “least of these” in their local community.

Advance

Together we create momentum within the church to advance a generation of people called to serve Christ and His children.

Be a part of something great.

When you choose to support our ministry you enable the eternally significant work of serving children. We rely on people, like you, who understand the importance of raising a generation of Christ followers by equipping those who are discipling them today.

Our Story

Our ministry began in 2008 as a social network designed to bring together children’s ministry leaders in a free online community. It has since grown to serve the global Church through events, training and advocacy.

Today, we are a nonprofit mission, funded by local churches, individual donors and various ministry sponsors. We look to God for a bright future and believe He will rise up as we work to stand with one another in unity.

Current Projects

Belize

Working alongside the people in the southern part of Belize, David and Karen share the Love of Jesus by implementing children and student ministry into public schools (presently 6 schools/2,000+ children each week) and local churches.  They have established feeding and food distribution programs (close to 1 million meals annually) with the goal of moving towards community gardens.  They also organize quarterly medical teams with free medicine and vitamins and have both a stationary clinic as well as “mobile” medical equipment.

Your support of their ministry ensures they can continue to reach the children and children’s leaders indigenous to the nation of Belize.

Iran

Maryam has created an innovative ministry program designed to serve Farsi speaking children around the world. As “Aunty Maryam,” she teaches children about Jesus. Her program is viewed by millions in Iran, Afghanistan and other Farsi speaking communities. Many of the families watching her program are Muslim.

Supporting her ministry ensures this vital ministry into the Middle East will continue.

Lebanon

Our friend in Lebanon, Youeel Tarabay, is working to train children’s leaders from the Middle East region. He combines basic teacher training with ministry to fit the needs of his community in a unique and innovative way.

This year, they will be doing three different events to serve the community there. The image to the right is of graduates from one of these programs. It is more academic in focus and is led by local leaders serving one another.

Your support of this ministry will help to ensure this program can grow to serve even more leaders in the Middle East region.

Netherlands

Tory has been working with international and Dutch youth in the Amsterdam area. Along with helping out with youth camps and dad/kid camps, he co-leads a group of English speaking 10-14 year olds from Crossroads International Church. This group of amazing youth meets for fun and community. The leaders of this group use the meetings to share with the youth about God and how He loves them.

Along with working with the church to continue developing their English kid’s programs, Tory plans to continue using social events for expat/international youth as a way of connecting with more kids and families in the area while also doing English tutoring to connect with the local Dutch kids.

Your support will allow Tory to continue working with this group while also allowing him to connect more with the expat/international community and the Dutch community.

Uganda

In Uganda, we are working with Basic Bible Truths to develop a training program for leaders of children. We are also raising support for Bibles to be used by Pastor Henry in the school he helps lead.

Your support of our projects in Uganda ensure the good news will be presented to the children in churches all across the country.

Ukraine

Pastor Alex Fedorchuk leads an organization called “Agape” in Ukraine. Their ministry works to serve over 3,000 orphans with encouragement and love. They teach the children basic bible truths and provide support programs for orphans as they age out of their homes.

Your support of Agape provides for continued ministry to orphans in Ukraine. In partnership with Pastor Alex’s ministry, we have also launched the Orphan Prayer Initiative.
