Preschool & Children's Ministry

Our desire is to partner with churches and parents as they raise a generation of children who will love God, serve each other, and impact the world.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Matthew 19:14


Our camps focus on sharing the gospel with children and providing them the opportunity to experience Jesus, while also giving them a fun and exciting experience.

Training Events

Our training events help to equip and empower children's ministry leaders, with trainings ranging from VBS to Church Weekday Education.
