Where Kids & Leaders Are A Really Big Deal

SoCAL KIDS

You’re here because you know the next generation is worth it. You care about girls and boys experiencing Jesus. I’m with you! The psalmist compels us:

"We will not hide these truths from their children, but will tell the coming generation
the praises of the Lord, and His strength, and the wonderful works that He has done."

Psalm 78:4

Robin Garvin
SoCal Network Children’s Ministries Director

Great news, you have a network of fellow family KidMin people cheering you on. We want to be your tribe!
Our definition of SoCal Kids is a network of real people and resources; a connection to like-minded people who all champion the church’s call to minister to children and families.  We exist because the empowered church has a mission and mandate to reach and show the next generation who Jesus is. SoCal Kids does that by:
  • Equipping leaders to make God’s big story available to children
  • Empowering the church to speak “kid” language, include kids and make a path and place for children in the church today.
  • Inspiring leaders to engage girls and boys in making Christ known through compassion and global missions.
Join us in making Jesus known! We are better for having you in the mix.
