KidZ at Heart equips people to reach and teach kids for Christ within their own culture. KidZ at Heart continues to meet needs around the world by equipping leaders in children’s ministry worldwide, using readily available local materials, and empowering children’s ministry leaders to teach and train others. This is cross-cultural children's ministry training.
KidZ Cross-Cultural Children's Ministry Training Materials
As part of the KidZ Ministry Certification Program, each workshop provides practical and culturally-relevant training for all those serving with children and allows each attendee to get closer to earning a formal certificate (Teachers, Advanced Teachers, and Children’s Ministry Leader).
Whether considering our equipping conferences overseas or training events in North America, equipping adults or shepherding children, KidZ at Heart is all about helping you help others to reach and teach kids for Christ. Our ministry is based on 2 Timothy 2:2, "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others" (NIV).
KidZ at Heart equips North American leaders with cutting-edge, cross-cultural children's ministry training materials that may be used to prepare their own volunteers or to equip churches and families in another culture. Instead of conducting VBS, rally, and crusade events, KidZ team members make annual short-term trips to equip local and regional ministry leaders, helping them learn to create and facilitate their own children's ministries. Workers are given practical skills and challenged to share the training with at least five others from their churches and outlying communities.
KidZ at Heart Team Leaders from North America are able to continue growing in their current ministries while also impacting churches, families, and children overseas. American children gain a heart for missions and for reaching the world's lost by watching their leaders get personally involved in cross-cultural ministry.
To save you hundreds of hours of research, development, and testing, KidZ at Heart training materials are designed with you in mind. These materials:
- Include scripted presenter's guides and handouts designed for cross-cultural use.
- Are available in several languages.
- Are field tested internationally in more than 40 countries and are regularly updated for cultural clarity and successful use.
- Help you succeed and avoid cultural pitfalls.
Philosophy of Education
KidZ at Heart leaders are committed to equipping people to reach and teach kids for Christ in ways that cause life transformation for the child. We want kids to know, love, and follow Jesus personally. We believe that this is done best when lessons are culturally relevant and are designed with the following five principles in mind:
