International Children’s Ministries Launches KidServe
The entire time Jesus was with His disciples, not only was He giving them knowledge or helping them to apply knowledge to their lives, but He was also helping them learn to serve others. Service within the framework of discipleship is not just about giving to others. It is about serving God and bringing glory to His name by reaching out to others. Jesus made it very clear that when doing something for others, we are doing it for Him!
In June, International Children’s Ministries announced the launch of a new ministry initiative called KidServe. KidServe will equip local churches to engage children in ministries that serve their family, the local church, community, and the world. Resources and ideas are already available on the ministry website, and KidServe will also now include the annual mission giving projects formerly known as Helping Hands for Kids. For the past fifteen years, this ministry has raised more than $100,000.00 for projects that have impacted children with the Gospel around the world.
As part of this program, Shaun McKinley announced that Michelle Brooks-Young would be serving as the volunteer KidServe Coordinator. An international instructor with Children’s Ministries for more than nine years, Michelle has assisted the ministry in raising nearly $100,000.00 for training purposes around the world. “With a passion and gifting for linking resources to needs, Michelle is a valued partner in this effort,’ said Shaun McKinley, international director of Children’s Ministries.
Simultaneous to the launch of KidServe, International Children’s Ministries also announced this year’s giving project, Project Build-A-School. This project will enhance local Church of God of Prophecy facilities throughout El Salvador as they serve more than 2,000 children daily throughout outreach programs. “This is our most ambitious endeavor yet,” said McKinley, “but it also has the potential to bring transformation to one of the world’s most dangerous and impoverished areas.”
