Kids

Children are next-generation leaders

We want kids to have a deeply-rooted confidence in the character of God so they’ll passionately follow Him no matter what life throws their way. We partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by providing environments, curriculum, and resources that center on the gospel and teach about the nature and character of God.
