Andy and Patty Metroka, from Hannaford Street Bible Church in Helena, Montana, had a vision to bring KidZ at Heart’s training in children’s ministry to their friends in Uganda, where their church already had a connection to local ministry. In February, members of their short-term team going to Uganda gathered to participate in KidZ at Heart’s Cross-Cultural KidMin Conference. Led by leaders of KidZ at Heart’s International Ministries, those attending experienced foundational KidZ at Heart teaching principles, explored their own leadership strengths, and practiced their personal presentation skills that they will use on the field in Uganda.
Bring this training to your international team at your church. Contact Vice President of North American Ministries Janet Anthony at (877) 778-KidZ (5439), ext. 501.
"After 17 years working in donor development for Christian non-profits, I'm excited that God is still using that experience [to volunteer] at KidZ. The staff at KidZ have integrity, are authentic, love children, and show Jesus in all they do. I am thankful to continue serving Jesus and his Kingdom through KidZ at Heart."
