What is King’s Kids?

King’s Kids is an international youth movement involving young people from 140 nations. It is the children’s and teenager’s expression of Youth With A Mission. Since its beginning in 1976, King’s Kids has affected the lives of countless thousands of young people with its message of hope, God’s love and new life through Jesus Christ.

Purpose:

To lead children, youth and families worldwide to know God in a proven way, bring Him joy and together make Him known to all peoples.

Strategies:

Phase One – Mobilize: Camps and outreaches mobilize Christian young people, giving them opportunities to share their faith with others and to participate in extending the Kingdom of God.
Phase Two – Disciple: Year round discipleship programs help young people and families to strengthen their relationship with God and live in a way that brings joy to His heart.
Phase Three – Reach: A variety of clubs, youth activity centers and street side church programs share the love of God with children and teens who have little or no contact with a Christian witness.
Phase Four – Care: KK mercy ministries around the world are involved in practically serving the needs of young people such as street kids, orphans, children with Aids, child soldiers and teen prostitutes.

What is YWAM?

A missionary organization founded by Loren and Darlene Cunningham in 1960 with the vision of waves of young people going out to reach the entire world for Jesus Christ.

Who are we? Get to know us a little better…

An international movement of Christians from many ethnic and educational backgrounds, denominations and countries.
All ages – young people, families and retired persons.
100,000 are involved in short-term work each year.
We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
No one in YWAM receives a salary; each missionary is responsible to depend on God for his/her own financial needs. Oftentimes God uses churches, friends, and family to supply this provision.

What does YWAM do? Some of the things we do…

Evangelism – presenting the Gospel throughout the world through creative methods
Mercy Ministries – showing God’s love through practical assistance
Training – equipping believers to love, worship, and obey God in order to fulfill their part of the Great Commission

Statement of PurposeThis is what YWAM stands for…

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to presenting Jesus personally to this generation, to mobilizing as many as possible to help in this task, and to the training and equipping of believers for their part in fulfilling the Great Commission. As citizens of God’s kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole Gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world.
We of Youth With A Mission believe: that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is God’s son; that people are created in God’s image
that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ
that although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ
that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us
that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “…Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
