PARTNER.TRAIN.MOBILIZE

Just three words sums up what KidZ at Heart International is all about. It's such a honor for me to work with such an incredible Christian organization that is reaching so many children for Christ. So here's what's it's all about:

Partner. You have relationships with children in your home, church, and community. Your proximity to those children and your relationship with them make you the most effective person to impact them. This is God’s design for passing on our faith to the next generation (Deuteronomy [...]

What will this look like?

Whenever we consider starting anything new we are faced with the challenge of imagining what it will eventually look like. Lost in wonder, we find ourselves daydreaming of how things will play out as we toy with the logic of "if-then."

If we agree to take this new job in a new city, then what will our lives look like? Will our kids adjust to new friends and new schools? Will our new neighbors be as friendly? Will [...]

Train. Partner. Mobilize. And give thanks!

(Okay...that was six. But you get the point.)

Partner. You have relationships with children in your home, church, and community. Your proximity to those children and your relationship with them make you the most effective person to impact them. This is God’s design for passing on our faith to the next generation (Deuteronomy 6). It’s the same for the networks of adults with whom we partner across the United States and in more than 40 countries around the world where KidZ [...]

KidZ at Heart Team Leader, Debbie Rowley, noticed a variety of ages that attended the training at the three locations in Moldova. Teens and young adults were serious about their ministries and appreciated the training. One woman in Cahul told mentioned that as a school teacher, she attends many trainings, but this was the best.

Co-Learning in Southern Africa

By | 2018-10-17T15:51:53+00:00 October 17, 2018|Pat McWhorter: Blog Posts, Staff Blogs|

Hundreds of children's leaders--those trusted individuals with whom children have an ongoing relationship--gathered for training in various locations throughout Southern Africa.  These trusted leaders took their roles very seriously. They not only have ongoing relationships with children, they have a God-given responsibility to nurture these children within their own culture. Though faced with a lack of resources and training, they wanted to know the best ways to help children fall deeply in love with Jesus.

There is such a passion in the hearts [...]

Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.

But the Lord is the true God, He is the living God and the everlasting King. Jeremiah 10:5, 10
