Who are we?
KWI seeks to transform, equip and expand the heart of Children’s Ministry worldwide.
This will be achieved by inspiring and informing the church, through specialized training events, conferences, mentoring and short term mission trips. By forming strategic partnerships with churches and denominational church movements around the globe, that have a desire to reach this new rising generation of children. Using culturally relevant methods and strategies, the impact of the local church on it’s community will be maximised.
John and Christine have worked with children and youth of all ages, since their teenage years. John is an ordained pastor with the Australian Assemblies of God and was the Children’s Pastor at Yarra Plenty Christian Centre in Melbourne, Australia 1996 – 2006. During this time, they pioneered Kids Works™ which reached both primary and preschool aged children and playgroups and served with the State and National Australian A.O.G children’s movement, Kids R Us.
Kids Works™ Outreach Events ministered to thousands of children and served as a bridge between church and the local community. In 2002, John and Christine pioneered Kids Works™ International.
During 2006, they were accepted as missionaries with the Australian AOG and are thus responsible for raising their own financial support. Since then, John and Christine have been working with Next Level International to pioneer the Leadership Development of Children’s Ministry in Europe. As a result they, along with their 3 children, relocated to the NLI international office in the UK for easier accessibility to both Europe and Africa.
