Find Your Passion. Give with Purpose.
(...and DREAM BIG: Our goal: $30,000!)
Regardless of where you live, we invite you to participate in the upcoming North Texas Giving Day. This is a day of giving set aside for North Texas non-profit organizations like KiDs Beach Club® to raise funds.
Our theme this year is Cultivating Character. Everything KBC does involves teaching Biblical character to preteens. George Barna, in his book Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions, explains that “if you want to shape a person’s life, it is during the ages of five and 12 that lifelong habits, values, beliefs and attitudes are formed.” We must reach kids when they are most open, and that is during the preteen years.
From our very beginning roots, Beach Clubs® have taught character through the lens of the Bible. Now through our global television show, KiDs on Character Radio, and even through our secular curriculum CharacterLeads®,we are cultivating character in preteens.
In faith, we've set a big goal this year: $30,000! Thankfully, we serve a big God!
Imagine this: We currently have 525 registered Club volunteers this year.
What if each of these volunteers gave just $20? We would already be at a third of our goal!
Early giving is already open, and we've made it super easy, to give!

Reaching Preteens in Iran
"...You guys are an answer to our prayer because we know that the children today are going to be the leaders of tomorrow. It is important for us to pour into them the message of Gospel and help them connect with the God of this universe... Your program is just what we have been praying for! It's interactive. It's relatable. I am blown away by the quality that you guys are producing, the script that you're using for them. And so we are thrilled to be a partner with you, to be able to broadcast it to potentially 6 million viewers daily that get to hear this."
---Lily Meschi, Director of Partner Relations, Iran Alive Ministries
What once was a dream for KiDs Beach Club® is now becoming a reality through a new partnership with Iran Alive Ministries (IAM.) Iran Alive is reaching Iranians with the Gospel, one soul at a time. They do this through broadcasting evangelistic programming into Iran via satellite 24-7, connecting new believers to house churches, smuggling Bibles through their underground church network, and through a Discipleship School. Soon, they will also reach Iranians and other Farsi-speaking countries with the Gospel through a Farsi-dubbed preteen program called KiDs Beach Club®! Yes, the initial steps have already begun toward dubbing KiDs Beach Club® TV into its first foreign language: Farsi. Praise God with us as we celebrate His goodness!
This podcast is a CAN'T MISS episode! Lily shares the compelling truth of Christian persecution in Iran and how KiDs Beach Club® TV is an answer to Iran Alive's prayers for reaching families in Iran!
Please pray for God to supply the needed funds for dubbing all 55 episodes of KBC TV into Farsi. Please consider making a designated gift today to offset the costs related to this project.

You may have noticed that we haven't featured new podcasts lately. It's not because we don't want to. In fact, we have been working on a long list of people that we want to feature!
However, we believe the things we produce should be done with excellence, and we are desperately in need of new video equipment! If you or your church have recently upgraded your equipment, we would love to have a conversation about our A/V needs! Until then, stay tuned!
"Whatever your hand finds to do,
do it with all your might!"
