The Northwest Ministry Network exists to share the hope of Jesus with our communities. These communities are both in the Pacific Northwest and around the world! Kid Missionary Challenge (KMC) trains children’s ministry leaders to teach children about world evangelism. Our vision is that every children’s minister would develop a holistic and passionate discipleship model which incorporates world missions.

KMC is the Northwest Ministry Network, Children's Department's bridge to connect to the Assemblies of God national children's missions campaign, BGMC. To learn more about the national program, click the link:


Giving Project: Africa's Children Now

Africa’s Children Now (ACN) is committed to strategically investing in and partnering with local churches to meet the needs of children. They believe the answer to Africa’s challenges is healthy local churches engaging their communities.

The West African country of Senegal is 91% Muslim. Missionaries have started a school in a northern city to meet the educational needs of the community. In just two years the enrollment has grown from 9 students to over 150 and the current facility is maxed out. This school is in need of two new classrooms, a project cost of $16,000. Your ministry can partner with Africa’s Children Now by contributing toward part or all of this itemized list:

  • Classroom (walls, doors, windows, paint, floor tiles) = $10,000
  • Floor tile, one classroom = $1,000
  • One bathroom = $500
  • Door = $200
  • Window = $150
  • Desk (seats two) = $100 Brick = $1

Northwest Kids will be partnering with Africa's Children Now to raise money to fund the building of classrooms for their school, through prayer, and by bringing awareness to the needs of children in our local communities, as well as the countries of Africa. 


KMC Prayer Guides

Prayer Guides are to be used and reproduced in your ministry. Each Prayer Guide focuses on a different missionary, in a different country. The Prayer Guide interviews the missionary, tells more about the country, and lists ways to pray and give toward the ministry. This brings missions to a "real life," easy to understand level for your children's ministry. Use it for teaching, curriculum, or a missions emphasis in your ministry. Download the Prayer Guides from the list or for more downloadable files, follow the link: KMC - Prayer Guide Resources (Soonr)
