As the fall begins to kickoff, in Kidslife, that means the start of a new year in J-Life, our amazing junior leadership program. J-Life gives elementary age kids, 3rd & 4th grade, an opportunity to serve and lead within Kidslife, while they learn what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus! J-Life or Junior Leaders In Full Excellence, builds elementary kids into bold, strong, confident leaders and we are pleased to be starting the 7th year of the program! Through serving in Kidslife services, participating in service projects, and leadership activities, J-Lifers learn to lead as Jesus led, while having a blast of fun too! The J-Life ministry helped launch the Mosop Orphanage and School in Kenya through donations raised by the annual J-Life Walkathon, and continues to contribute to Dr. Paul's missions efforts in that country. This service effort is one of many that the kids get to be a part of as they lead and help change lives both near and far!
I Timothy 4:12 says, 'Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity', and we stand on this scripture in J-Life wholeheartedly!! Our kids need to understand that God can use them right where they are and that they can be His servant no matter how young or small they may be. We are excited to have about 100 J-Life kids gearing up to kick the year off in October and look forward to an impactful year with these junior leaders.
Kidslife is also proud to announce the launch of J-Life as we partner with Nathaniel Q. Henderson Elementary School in Houston's fifth ward. We are thrilled to be able to offer the scholars at Nat Q. the same opportunities to learn leadership principles based on God's word! J-Life at Nat Q will start after school weekly, at the end of September and will offer mentoring, leadership activities, games, and fun!
Believing God's best for this generation of powerful, impactful leaders in the making!
