No adults needed – kids lead children’s ministry

NO ADULTS NEEDED!! Last Sunday in Elementary at Destiny Christian Fellowship was our Kids in Ministry Day. We had 4 to 6 different kids ages 9-11 leading the whole class (my 11 yr old Isaac was the head teacher) You NEED to see these amazing kids worshipping their hearts out to Jesus.

One 11 yr old was going around encouraging the class during worship by singing, doing hand motions and dancing trying to help activate the younger ones. I video taped and cried.

This is the first of many classes where our kids will lead the class. One of the most incredible times on Sunday was having a couple who are new children’s ministry pastors in Vancouver come and observe our class. The curriculum that we just finished in the last year was Becky Fischer’s, Hearing God’s voice, and we gave the kids an opportunity to activate that with this couple.

We had a couple come forward, the kids bowed their head and took time to listen to God’s voice for what He wanted to share with this couple. The first boy who was sitting at a table coloring and I didn’t even think he was listening because he has some learning issues was the first one to shoot his hand up. Gabriel who is 5, said “I see that the pain is going away right now.” We asked the man if he had any pain in his body and he began to tear up. He said he has had multiple shoulder surgeries and is in constant pain. The kids surrounded him and prayed for him, most of the ones who lead out in prayer were in 1st grade.

Then I asked the kids if they saw or heard anything. Sage who is 5 said 5 different words that God told her and about a dove that landed on the top of the lady’s head. The lady looked up a little shocked and said that really means something very deep and personal to me. They could feel the presence of God very strong on them. It was amazing to leave feeling like our team didnt do anything at all because these kids did absolutely everything. They planned the class from who was going to open in prayer. 9yr old Angina did it exactly like a teacher does and asked the kids who wanted to pray. She did the rules also.

My 11 yr old son, Isaac spent part of his Saturday putting the scripture game all together. He cut out the words and put them in plastic eggs that the kids had to find and Put together. Before the game Isaac and Ezekiel had the kids learn (as the boys said “Just like Teacher Joseph taught them”) by writing the scripture on the white board then erasing 1 word at a time while reciting the verse after each word came off.

After the game, they had the kids watch a short clip on the “talking donkey” then 9 yr old Joshua asked the kids questions about it. 9 yr old Jaden asked who needed prayer and prayed for each request personally. What an amazing day to observe and be a part of, we were ready to keep going for another hour!What a powerful way to see the fruit of this ministry displayed.

Power in the name of Jesus: These Kids Got It!!

What an INCREDIBLE morning. On the way to church this last Sunday, I wept as I listened to “Break Every Chain” by Jesus Culture. I began picturing the elementary class I was about to teach getting a hold of the concept that there is Power in the name of Jesus.

We have been teaching them from Becky Fischer’s Kids In Ministry International curriculum “Hearing God’s Voice”. We are in our last chapter learning about the enemy’s counterfeits. We have spent a whole year teaching our kids how to hear the voice of God. For most of them it is now a natural thing. Something that some of the parents are still learning to grasp. They have learned all the different ways they can hear Gods voice. Now they are moving out with the words of knowledge and prophetically to each other and those they know. They are worshiping with abandonment and praying for the sick and seeing God heal. They have an unstoppable faith.

When I arrived at Destiny Christian Fellowship’s Elementary class, I was so overwhelmed with the Presence of God and had so much anticipation of what He was going to do. I began class teaching the lesson about how the enemy lies to people making them believe he is just as powerful as God, or that he can be everywhere at one time, or that he knows everything. BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE! Those are only God’s characteristics.

I then had the kids write down on a little piece of paper things that the enemy tries to scare them with or tempt them with or make them believe a lie about. These pieces of paper were formed into a chain. Then I had someone in the class put a white robe around themselves to represent Jesus and as we listened and worshipped with “Break Every Chain” the person representing Jesus came and broke the chains. The kids then rushed up to break and rip up the chains because they knew they had the power of Jesus inside of them to see those chains broken. It was such a visual representation of what takes place in our lives and also what happens in others lives as we pray for them.

One of the songs I taught them was, “Romans 16:19 says”. We sang and did the actions for this song for 10 minutes. They got it and loved it. The importance of getting the Word of God in their heart is critical at this age. Song is the easiest way to do this. My other favorite Music Group who does this is “God Rocks”. They sing pure word for word scripture. My kids and I have listened to it for 8 years. It is one of the best. They have DVD’s, CD’s and books for kids. Each one has a theme with verses that back it up. Powerful and life changing. Worth every cent of investment. You can also find some on Christian TV channels or YouTube. The other group my class loved watching was “The Rizers” you can find them on YouTube. Purely scripture done in a fun and entertaining way to watch and listen.
Here is the link for Romans 16:19 Says

One little 1st grader told me after class that the power of Jesus is in his hands. That when he prayed for his grandma the heat from his hand made a red mark on her back. He knows without a shadow of a doubt the power of His healing God. He is also quite the worship leader. From the first day he came to class he came up front and let these kids into powerful times of worship.

No one can say that you miss out of church when you work in children’s ministries at DCF because we have CHURCH in our classrooms.

No Longer Silent- The Church is Behind the times- Not for long!

It is time for the church to be informed of what this generation is being taught about the supernatural. We are beginning to have children come into churches across this nation who are experiencing the supernatural because they are being taught and mentored by the New Age and Cults. They are learning through online websites, books and even in the classroom.

Please look at the images below of pictures I took of papers on a teachers desk at Happy Valley Middle School. This is real people!! We need to learn what why this is a big deal to get tangled with this and how to teach our children to stay away and be a light. The video clip below is from Becky Fischer and Kids In Ministry International.

Look at this Book Excerpt I just googled and found. My google search was the title of another Becky Fischer teaching, “What Psychics know about our children that we dont” I watched this video tonight and I am going to show it to as many parents as I can!! This book that I found shows how the world is pastoring/mentoring supernatural or “gifted” kids into bringing out their “psychic giftings” it is crazy when you read it! How much more does the church need to understand God’s supernatural and be released into it. We need to be able to discern those who come in to the church or our lives who talk supernatural things but do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Or Born Again Believers who do not discern if what they are seeing is from God or the enemy.

http://books.google.com/books?id=CTY_Ci2EwoMC&pg=PT48&lpg=PT48&dq=what+psychics+know+about+our+kids+that+we+don’t&source=bl&ots=DnyB4vq4qH&sig=8F1NkgCd-LARiwt6wX5YZxCDjm4&hl=en&sa=X&ei=nWVpVNnFBM7SoAT16ILgDA&ved=0CCIQ6AEwA

THIS IS WHY THE CHURCH NEEDS WAKE UP AND UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS ISSUE! We need to have discernment if they are seeing the spirit of God or are they seeing a counterfeit of the enemy. We cant ignore it and think it will go away, we are already way behind the times.

Here is the link for a eye opening and insightful teaching from Becky Fischer on what is going on in the spirit realm and how it is affecting this new generation. “The Kingdom of Light” –
(Taken from her website . This is the product description)
Filmed LIVE at KIMI’s annual family conference

Speakers: Becky Fischer

The Kingdom of Light series teaches children the important fundamental concepts that God has a kingdom where we become citizens when we are born again. But because God is light, his kingdom is a kingdom of Light. The Bible says we are children of light when we are is and that we are to walk in the light and He is in the light. But we quickly learn that our arch enemy, Satan, also has a kingdom, and it’s a kingdom of darkness.

To us as mature Christian adults it may seem obvious which is which. But to this generation the lines between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness have become seriously blurred. In this series the children learn how to recognize each kingdom and what the characteristics of each one are. They learn the truth about magic, witchcraft and false religions that can be very confusing when they grow up with those things as a normal part of the world around them.

The children will learn that we are called out of darkness to walk in His glorious light. Without ever making a list for them of movies they shouldn’t watch, books they shouldn’t read, or games they shouldn’t play, we simply give them biblical principles for recognizing light and darkness.

I have watched it many times and am showing it to others:
http://kidsinministry.org/resources/more-stuff/kingdom-light-mp4-series/

My mandate: to personally experience, as well as, biblically train and equip the church to experience the fullness of the spirit and presence of God, while at the same time, teaching it to be aware of the counterfeit operations of the enemy and those who follow him.

This is the Teacher Study Guide at a Middle School- no longer can people tell me I am just a fanatic or extremist or that it is an exaggerated lie! I have seen proof with my own eyes.

Don’t Let Your Teaching Curriculum Hinder the Holy Spirit

IMG_2219.JPG

(Yesterday, Sunday Aug 17, 2014)

Jesus said He wants to show himself to our kids today. He wants to show His love and give them a piece of His heart! Declaring revelations, encounters, and transformed lives today. His hands are stretched out and He is pouring out His anointing oil on all Children’s Ministry Teachers today, get ready for an outpouring of the kingdom of Heaven today.

Allow the Holy Spirit to breathe on the curriculum you are using!! Let Him have His way! When have you ever seen kids who liked to stay in the box and not be free? Haha! Allow God to do what He wants to do and watch out for a breakout of the Supernatural! Healing of body, soul and refreshing of spirit. Let miracles break out and hearts be set free! Can’t wait to teach my class today!

…….Update from after class…….
In class today, The Holy Spirit showed up and in our short time of soaking in God’s presence, there were kids who saw Angels in the same place in the classroom. Another little boy saw Jesus. And hearts were touched as they learned that Jesus lived a sinless life and took the punishment for our sin upon himself on the cross. They can now come to him asked for forgiveness believe on what he did on the cross and receive Eternal salvation. Admit. Believe, Forever Receive

One little boy who is visiting accepted Jesus into his heart for the first time. Praise the Lord! It was a powerful time in his presence with the elementary at Destiny Christian Fellowship.

Teacher, I see angels in here

(Facebook Post March 2014)

It was heaven coming to earth. The enemy trying to take me out last night and this morning before I left for church. My blood pressure was 208/105 and my head and body felt horrible. BUT I knew God had such incredible plans for today that I was covered in a heavy blanket of peace. When I got to church the lady over our prayer ministry told me that she has seen a wolf walking around our children’s ministry in the spirit. But Jesus came and kicked his teeth out and removed his claws so that he was not able to touch us. At the beginning of class one of the third grade girls raised her hand because she wanted to share a dream that she had. Her dream almost exactly copied the word from our prayer Pastor about a wolf walking around a sheepfold, And Shepherd inside protected the sheep from this wolf. I was in shock as this little girl told me her dream and I told her it confirmed the word I had just heard as they were checking into class.

As I began class I shared with the kids the amazing true story. Of the children in the Village of Bungoma, Kenya. These orphans were told about God and his kingdom, as they came to Christ and realized their authority as Prince and princesses of the King They begin to amazing miracles. They walked into a hospital and one boy felt like he was supposed to sing a worship song. As he did, people begin to be healed and got up out of their hospital beds. The other patients asked the kids to come and talk with them and pray for them, people began to be healed and saved. Many many people walked out of that hospital and were healed – by God. The children then went to the streets for a week and paraded through the town saying, Bungoma Children for Jesus! They went up to people on the street and people were healed and received Jesus as their Savior.

I told our children that there is absolutely no difference between them and the children in Africa. The only thing they need to realize is that Jesus wants to come and reveal himself to them. The kids were so impacted by the story and the revelation that Jesus is already here. We then did our declarations which we received from Bethel’s children ministry, I will post them later because they are powerful. That led into a time of worship where the children were completely engaged dancing around the room and worshiping their Papa God.

We sang Deep Cries Out to Deep. Then I had the kids sit down in a circle and we sang “Holy Spirit you are welcome here. Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere. Your glory God is what my heart longs for to be overwhelmed by your presence Lord.” The presence of God was so thick in that room, after that song was over one of the little first-graders said slowly and in awe, “that was amazing”. I asked her why and she tried to describe the feeling of His presence.

Then I had the kids lay on the ground as we listen to, “I Love You Lord”. It was a beautiful version I found on YouTube. I told them that last night I saw Jesus coming into the room and heal them and speak to them and show them who he was like never before. They then listen to the song and soaked in God’s presence. Many of them jumped up about halfway through the song to the tables where I had paper and markers for them to draw out prophetic art of what they saw while been in God’s presence. I kept soaking music on while the drew the most incredible pictures of what God was telling them. Some of them came up and shared their pictures and words that God told them, many of the words were confirmations of what God had told me about the class and others in the church.

The presence of God was so sweet and precious. I had one little first-grade girl, and tell me she saw Jesus walking over to a young boy in class who has a deformed arm, And He touched the boy and his arm grew out. I saw the same thing in my vision last night about Jesus touching his arm. I know without a shadow of a doubt our class will see Joshua’s arm grow to a normal size before our eyes!

Many children saw Angels the whole class time either dancing with us or in different parts of the room. I know it will be a day they will never forget. Holy Spirit is so faithful to touch our children. I talked to the teacher in our toddler class, Katherine Carter before the service and told her the vision of the circle and Jesus walking in the middle, and declaring the same thing over her class. At the end of the service she told me she definitely felt Jesus show up in a powerful way in her class.

If anyone ever tells you that you are missing out of what is happening in the main service by teaching in children’s church, I can tell you they have it reversed. I would not have wanted to be anywhere else, despite missing many guest speakers, what I received back from these children nothing can compare to!
