Get out of the building...
IMPACT Ministry: IMPACT Kid’s Clubs work mainly in multi-housing sites, visiting the same site, at the same hour every week. IMPACT volunteers build relationships, facilitate games and activities, serve snacks and teach a Bible lesson to the kids and usually several parents. Many kids and adults come to saving faith in Christ through this ministry. (Volunteers are equipped to serve through ongoing training and on the job experience by experienced workers. There are different roles to fill, not everyone has to be a teacher; some are game leaders, some serve snack and take attendance. Anyone can comfortably serve in this ministry)
