– and teaching them to connect with God for themselves
Walk Thru the Bible, in partnership with KidZ at Heart, offers training to children’s ministry workers in Southern Africa. God has certainly blessed this partnership, the heart of which has been to see children fall deeply in love with Jesus and His Word.
In light of this collaboration, it has been a privilege to host and train a group of children’s ministry workers from the MES Gap Year Programme ** at the Victory Park LifeChange Centre this year. What a joy to celebrate with this committed group of young people, who have now completed all the KidZ at Heart training modules. This training forms part of equipping them to minister to children from inner city environments through after-school programmes and Bible clubs.
The young people were united in their enthusiasm and appreciation for the training – as they were encouraged to connect with and develop their own relationship with God. Many testified that their lives were deeply impacted and enriched by the practical guidelines and skills they were taught.
The smiles on their faces, as they display the certificates they received at the end of the training, clearly reflect their joy and enthusiasm for all they have learnt.
This group clearly has a heart to reach children with the Good News of Christ. They testified about how the KidZ at Heart material had shown them how to teach children to have their own relationship with God, and to trust in Him whom they have never seen.
Many shared how they had learnt to help children go home remembering the main point of the lessons and Bible stories. A real highlight for many was learning how to teach children to hear from God and talk to Him themselves.
Others shared about the KidZ at Heart training…
“I only met God personally at KidZ at Heart. I now have a passion for God and I want kids to meet Him also.” – Kevin
“I love that the KidZ at Heart training helped me personally to grow in confidence and to use different techniques and skills to reach children for Christ. – Elina
“This will help me minister to children to give them hope and trust in God. We were also made to feel so welcome at Victory Park Life Change Centre.” – Brightness
“It’s bigger than just the teacher teaching the children about God. This training helps you know how to create that space where kids can connect with God and experience Him for themselves.”
We praise God for the impact of this partnership and for the many children that will be ministered to through this group!
