Bible Focused. Our ministries are based on the teaching and principles of the Bible as God’s inspired word.

Prayer Powered. Our ministries are supported and empowered through the Holy Spirit with prayer.

Fun/Child Targeted. Our ministries intentionally target children’s spiritual needs in a way that is fun, exciting, and life-long.

Relevant. Our ministries are relevant to the needs of children where they are, in relation to their family, their church, their school, and their environment.

Relational. Our ministries encourage positive peer relationships, as well as, relationships with adults who will lead and guide them. 

Safe. Our ministries have children's safety and well being--physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually--as a priority.

As kids submerge themselves in God’s Word, they will discover that Jesus didn’t just see what’s on the outside of people. He looked deep down on the inside. So grab your goggles, step into your flippers, and dive in to find truth below the surface!"
