KidZ at Heart is a global Christian community that trains, partners with, and mobilizes networks of leaders to help children fall deeply in love with Jesus.

The KidZ Cause

We seek to evangelize the 2.3 billion children in our world who need to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. The cause continues as we seek to disciple these young believers into lifestyles committed to Christ as Lord resulting in their ongoing personal faith development and becoming harvesters in the fields themselves.
Jesus himself commanded the adults around him to allow the children to come to him, therefore we advocate for the children of the world, acknowledging their value and significance.

"Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” And he placed his hands on their heads and blessed them..." Matthew 19:14-15 (NLT)

God’s message is to pass from one generation to the next through faith communities, therefore we equip churches and families to share the gospel with their own children.

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NIV)

Since the vast majority (60-80%) of Christians come to Christ between the ages of 4 and 14, evangelizing children is simply the most impactful means of fulfilling the Great Commission. Church researcher, George Barna, in his book, Transforming Children Into Spiritual Champions, tells us that not only are children the ones most likely to come to the Lord, thus making the evangelism of children incredibly important, but they are also the ones most likely to absorb spiritual instruction, making the discipleship of children essential.

"Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'" Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)

The eternal battle for 2.3 billion children, their families, and God’s church is a spiritual one to be conducted locally and globally in the power of the Holy Spirit.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8 (NIV)

“Empowering and equipping family members and church leaders to provide the environments for children to encounter God, the nurture and teaching of our Lord in every day life, will further God’s Kingdom now and for generations. What greater impact or joy is there than to have children of all ages walk with the Lord?”
