Kids Empowered is on a mission to equip churches and parents to value their children and train them up in the Lord. Kids are vital members of the kingdom of God, and the time to begin training and empowering them is now!

Our twelve-month Kids Ministry curriculum is designed to lead kids into a real relationship with God and equip them to share God’s love and power with others. Our website provides articles and other resources for both churches and parents, to help them on their journey of training and empowering their kids.
