If you have a passion to serve Jesus Christ and children in your community, then we have a place for you!

Happy child

We never get our vision off of the children, and we are some of the few people that quietly labor to build the fence when there's lots of people building the clinic.

We will train you and equip you with everything you need. There is a mission field right in your backyard and on the schoolyards in your local elementary and middle schools, and we want to equip you with the skills and resources to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the children and families in your community.
