KidZ at Heart training is designed to equip those who work with children to teach creatively, in ways that help them to really engage with God’s Word and learn how to have a growing, personal relationship with Him. Since a child’s beliefs and values are developed in early childhood and firmly established by the early teens, a church’s commitment to the spiritual formation of its children is a wise investment that will reap eternal dividends.

A Message from KidZ at Heart’s President and Co-Founders
Time is of the essence!
While evidence continues to mount that the most significant time to reach and teach a person about God is during the childhood years, too little is being done to effectively minister to children around the world.
Both in North America and in countries around the world, whether economically developed or not, whether rich or poor, whether urban or rural, we meet families, Sunday school teachers, and church leaders who love God and His kids. But the needs seem almost universal:
Family leaders and church workers long to be taught effective methods for reaching and teaching kids for Christ. People need to be encouraged…to be reminded that they are serving God when they nurture children and that their work will have long-term benefits.
In North America we have supplies, curriculum and classrooms, but what’s the most effective way to reach kids and how do we get volunteers? In other countries, churches and families may have few supplies, no published curriculum, and little or no training. Can they effectively teach kids?
Whether resourced or not, dear brothers and sisters are committed to doing the very best ministry they can for the children of their churches and communities. It is our privilege to help equip these people to reach and teach kids for Christ within their own culture.
You, too, can have an eternal impact…in your own home, church, community and worldwide! We challenge you to become part of the KidZ family, whether by praying, going, helping, or giving. It takes all four to make this ministry work! To go to the website of KidZ at Heart International, please click here.
