Strategic Storytelling Environments

Connecting Kids to Jesus and His Story 

There is a spiritual battle going on for the minds and hearts of our children. A vision for God’s heart must be cast and leaders must be multiplied before our kids’ foundation has crumbled to the culture at large.

We have developed an effective teaching strategy to reach kids in all cultures — domestic and abroad — with the good news of Jesus and His story.

There is a spiritual battle going on for the minds and hearts of our children. A vision for God’s heart must be cast and leaders multiplied before our children’s foundation has crumbled to the culture at large.

We have developed an effective teaching strategy to reach kids in all cultures, domestic & abroad, with the good news of Jesus and His story.

Kids Around the World has developed a methodology called KIDStory so those we partner with can learn to model Jesus’ method of teaching through Biblical storytelling, interactive experiences and meaningful discussions. These environments, which we generically call KIDStory Clubs, are created where kids connect with Jesus and His Story. The strategy and resources are easily reproducible so leaders and KIDStory Clubs are multiplied, reaching into areas where children have no access to a local church.

The methods used to tell and retell God’s story are Bible centered, fun and engaging. The questions posed by leaders are not just for retention, but for transformation of the heart and mind, leading to real life application. This gives leaders the chance to disciple each child by following up on the things that the Holy Spirit is teaching and revealing.

Whether you are in kids or youth ministry, the leader of a small group, preparing for an overseas mission trip, running a local VBS, or simply a mom, dad or grandparent; you will find this approach to learning equally refreshing and valuable as you are equipped with proven tools for effectively sharing God’s Word.

Children are transformed by learning who God is, who they are, and how to have a real and personal relationship with Jesus. We believe this happens through the 5 core essentials of KIDStory:

How it Works

Partnering

There is a critical need to raise up and equip leaders to disciple children in ways that work best for them. Basic KIDStory workshops are offered globally and throughout the United States. Throughout the training, participants learn to share the Gospel with children through dynamic storytelling – directly from the Bible. At these workshops every participant can expect to learn:

  • Teaching skills that bring the stories of the Bible to life
  • Fun, interactive ways to hear, learn and retell God’s Word to include: games, music, art & drama
  • Proven ways to facilitate discussions that provide a place where the Holy Spirit can penetrate children’s hearts rather than giving pat, predictable answers
  • How to create KIDStory Club environments where children become active participants in God’s redemptive story instead of just distant observers

Implementation

KIDStory relies on Jesus’ method of teaching through telling stories combined with interactive experiences and meaningful discussions. These skills are culturally universal and fun to learn and share with others. This makes KIDStory accessible and easily reproducible (for partners) both locally and globally. We believe transformation takes place in a relational learning environment where God’s Word is spoken, His Spirit guides, and a child encounters the love of Jesus by becoming an active participant in God’s story and not just a distant observer. We call these environments “KIDStory Clubs”. They are places, like what Jesus created, where children feel welcomed, loved, and blessed by the leaders and ultimately the Lord Himself. They are where children have fun and are free to share what they are learning and experiencing — a place where God’s presence is very real and evident. Children are not just learning from a book, but through relationships.

Resources

Those participating in KIDStory will find many resources available to enhance the work they are doing with the children they are reaching and discipling. From training videos, workshop manuals, Bible lessons, to very specific topics like trauma and KIDStory@Home, resources are continually being developed for life transformation to happen with children, families and communities.

Generation after generation stands in awe of [God’s] work; each one tells stories of [His] mighty acts.
– Psalm 145:4 (MSG)

We recognize parents’ desire to be the spiritual leader in their homes, but realize that they may not know where to start. It can seem best to rely on local church leaders to take on this role, but quite honestly, parents have the greatest influence in their child’s life — greater than any church or ministry. We believe what you will find here in KIDStory@Home will revolutionize the way you engage with your children: physically, emotionally and spiritually.
