Interested in King's Kids Ministries?
King's Kids welcomes your participation in the battle for the hearts and minds of the emerging generation. Please consider joining us through prayer, financial giving, personal training and outreach involvement.
Who Can Join?
These outreaches are open to young christians aged 6-18years who complete the personal application process. Some teams have age restrictions and all teams encourage the following: Children under 10 must be accompanied by a parent, and young people between 11-12 may need to be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult. Teens 13 years and older may attend without adult or parental accompaniment.We welcome outreach staff applications from those whom God has called to work with children and teens in a discipleship and outreach context and who have an active relationship with Jesus Christ. Families are welcome! We encourage the entire family to discover their role together as they give to others. Parents who accompany their young people on team can participate in various staff responsibilities.
These are exciting short-term training and outreach activities with the King's Kids ministry, for young people desiring to grow in knowing God and to learn how to share their faith with others. The key for these weekenders is that we work with the church leadership to equip and encourage for when the weekender has finished.
Teenagers are challenged to discover the strengths and weaknesses of their leadership potential through a 3-5 day outdoor adventure experience. It will prepare them for life decisions in confronting issues of personal identity, facing and overcoming obstacles, and team work.
