KidZ at Heart Newsletter

KidZ at Heart Newsletter - December 2017   

"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 have exciting news to share! KidZ at Heart International has just signed a “memorandum of understanding” (commonly known as an MOU) with Hope International University in Fullerton, California. Together, we will be creating and administering an online Children’s Ministry Leadership Certificate as part of Hope’s School of Advanced Leadership Training (SALT) program.

Wikipedia defines MOU as “an agreement between two…or more….parties (that)… expresses a convergence of will between the parties, indicating an intended common line of action.” The Scriptures define this as the body of Christ working together to build the kingdom of God! Read more.

One Gift. One Cause.

Rather than attempting to reach one child at a time, KidZ at Heart intentionally focuses on encouraging and equipping teachers and leaders who do the hard, fun, and rewarding work of leading children, like Luis, into a growing relationship with Jesus...for a lifetime. Read more.

New Teamwork in Nicaragua

In November 2017, KidZ at Heart leaders from the US and El Salvador joined to form Team Nicaragua. KidZ at Heart staff members Way & Gean Stevens (team leaders) and Carol Kendrick from the US joined Nancy Moran and Carolina de Portillo from El Salvador. The team traveled together to Nicaragua and served over 100 participants! Read more.

No Place to Lay His Head

Embedded in the beloved Christmas story are sad scenarios that we seldom stop to consider. Reading Gospel passages from the comfort of our home, we sometimes miss the unpleasant side, references to a tragic, fallen world – the world into which the Baby Jesus was born. The world in which we live today.

I’m a city girl myself, so if I tried to imagine what it was like to spend the night in a cave full of hay and farm animals, I probably wouldn’t get it right, the sounds and smells, that is. This was probably not Mary’s first choice. Read more.

Surprises in Romania

When Nusa (who lives in Bacau, Romania) heard about the coming KidZ at Heart training, she doubted that she would get anything out of it. After all, she had already raised three of her five children to adulthood. She felt that working in children's ministry was not her passion, because she has a heart to help women who are transitioning from jail to society again. Read more.
