The Lord said, "Do not say, ‘I’m only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to. You must say everything I command you to say." Jeremiah 1:7
Led by God, the vision for Gospel Kids was born in 2011. It was in 2013 when this ministry of helping children experience sharing the gospel at a young age was officially launched. The mission and vision of Gospel Kids is based on Jeremiah 1:7 where the Lord assures Jeremiah that it is He who will work through Jeremiah for His glory. Jeremiah thought that he was too young for the job to which God was calling him. The Lord, however, assured him that it did not matter how much knowledge or maturity he had. Jeremiah was called by the Lord God Almighty to do a task, and the Lord would do the work through him. When we give our lives to Christ we are called to be ambassadors for the Lord (2 Cor. 5:20). The same is true for children who give their lives to Christ. Our desire is to help children fulfill their calling as believers by taking part in the Great Commission.
“Only one of every eight adult believers feels adequately prepared to effectively share their faith.” -George Barna, Barna Research Group, Ltd.
We believe that children can and should learn to share the gospel at a young age. Learning at a young age to be Christ's representative in this world will help them to grow up boldly sharing the Good News to everyone. Research shows that most child evangelism organizations focus only on sharing the gospel with children but do not equip children to share the gospel. Gospel Kids will not only equip children to share the gospel, but also provide opportunities for them to go out and practice what they learned by sharing the gospel at outreaches or on mission trips. We not only want to invite children to come to know Jesus, but we want to invite them to go and be like Jesus by sharing the gospel. Age is no limit for what the Lord can do in us and through us.

“GCO takes the message of God’s salvation to the streets to share hope for people in need of his love and grace. Experiencing hundreds of men, women and children accepting Christ is the most beautiful work God has given us with the privilege to do. Every Christian should be encouraged to learn the simple presentation and join in the work of this worthy ministry.” -Bonita
“My daughter, Krysta, and I had the opportunity to evangelize with GCO in a park in Oceanside. We got to share the Gospel with people we didn’t know for the first time. People flocked to our table wanting to hear about who Jesus is. It was a day we will remember into eternity!” -Lara
“My constant prayer for my children is that they will take their place in this world to win their generation for Christ. The training from the Gospel Colors class and the park outreach equipped my ten-year old daughter to do what many adults have never done — to clearly share her faith and lead someone to Christ!” -Cynthia
“So glad my daughter had the opportunity to build such confidence in sharing the good news. I love the fact that she now LOVES sharing the gospel and will do so to anyone who will listen. What a great skill to have at such a young age. Thank you.” -Jenn
“As a direct result of our partnership with GCO, New Song has been able to lead over 5,000 people to Christ in the last three years. What could be better?” -Hal Seed, Sr. Pastor, New Song Community Church 2014
“I am humbled and honored to pray for GCO, their missionaries, mission trips and most of all for the Holy Spirit’s leading in everything they do, everyone they share Christ with, and the lives that are impacted by them on a daily basis. GCO is a huge blessing to our community. If you have not been on a Mission trip with GCO, I would encourage you too. It was a life changing experience for me, I am forever changed, and will be forever grateful. Thank you Jesus for GCO, continue to richly poor out your blessings upon this wonderful ministry!” -Rufina
“Never did I imagine myself walking the streets sharing the Gospel, and never did I imagine the overwhelming joy I experienced while doing it.” -Matt
