Spiritual Life Conferences

We have just started a new ministry for our members living overseas and their kids called CLUB 4th.

Mission/Vision Statement: CLUB 4th is an organization developed around the unique needs of Third Culture Kids (TCK’s) with the desire and purpose to help them connect with and grow in their understanding and practical living of the 4th Culture (God’s Kingdom culture). CLUB 4th is using the unique environment of Spiritual Life Conferences to provide solid biblical teaching, worship, games, activities, and crafts for the kids in a safe, loving, and child-friendly place, while their parents are given the opportunity to connect with others in their region and to get spiritual input of their own. If you have a heart for children and desire to minister to the families by taking care of their children, this is the place for you to serve.
