KidZ at Heart Newsletter

KidZ at Heart Newsletter - May 2018

"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." 2 Timothy 2:2 

From Gordon & Becki

We've seen it countless times over the past 16 years of training in other cultures. Local teachers, parents, and children's leaders attend a KidZ at Heart training, and their lives and ministries are transformed. They embrace and immediately implement what they've learned. Children's lives are impacted as they engage in and experience vital biblical truths. But something's missing, or, rather someone's missing. During the training, attendees begin advocating for those who aren't there to experience the same training. Read more.


A Cross-Cultural Mentor

Jackson lost his father during the Rwandan genocide. As an exchange student from Rwanda, Jackson then went on to the Coast Guard Academy in the United States. One of his classmates invited Jackson to his home for several holidays where Jackson was considered part of the family. He has since returned to serve in the Rwandan Air Force. Over a recent Christmas holiday, Jackson asked his classmate's father, Andy Metroka, to mentor him. Read more.


A $15,000 Challenge Fund to Train the Trainers

Let's set the stage for a rapid expansion of knowledge and skills. Joan, a National Trainer for KidZ at Heart, provides training in remote areas throughout the year. She is currently training 22 teachers in Olievenhoutbosch, South Africa. Together we can train more trainers globally to provide much-needed instruction to those KidZ at Heart would never be able to reach otherwise. Joan shares, "I assure you that when the teachers implement what they're learning, we can expect a revival in South Africa!"

Spiritual Math Made Relevant

by Nancy Tichy, Author for KidZ at Heart International

4/14 to the 10/40. Sounds a bit like a math equation, right? Earlier,we shared the meaning and significance of the first term, but, sadly, it's easy to overlook the opportunity with the second. Here's an explanation to help make sense of all of all this. Read more.



KidZ Ministry Team Training in Colorado

From the inside of a former Colorado airport hangar, now turned into Stapleton Church, came laughter and discovery during the recent KidZ Ministry Team Training. Children's Ministry Director Ariel invited those who served in children's ministry at their church, community daycare teachers, plus those in their community, to spend a Saturday learning to effectively engage kids in a spiritual relationship with Jesus. One of the participants, Kynton, expressed, "This is a great training for anyone who wants to help the children know God, not just know about God."
