"Churches must begin now to come along-side parents and equip them to provide their children - at the earliest age possible - with biblical precepts that will protect them from a barrage of worldly ideas and teaching that is hostile to the biblical worldview," said George Barna, award winning author and pollster.
KiDs Beach Club® is proud to announce that George Barna will be the keynote speaker at the Bibles for Beach Club Benefit Dinner and Auction on April 24. Transforming Children Into Spiritual Champions is one of his greatest works where he makes a case for why children should be the church's number one priority.
The mission of KiDs Beach Club® is to mobilize churches to go outside of their walls in order to bring the message of Christ into the heart of the community. The heart of the community is found in our children and they are often found in our schools. By bringing God's word to these children in their schools, the doors are open for churches to begin ministering not just to the children but to the family.
We hope that you will join us in making an eternal difference in the lives of children and their families by attending our Bibles for Beach Club Benefit Dinner. The event will include pace car rides for table hosts, a delicious meal, and an inspiring message from George Barna!
Tickets go on sale February 24!

On the outskirts of Memphis in a suburb known as Southaven, the gospel is being proclaimed and declarations of faith are abounding!
On Thursday afternoons at 3:15, a group of volunteers sent out from Brown Missionary Baptist Church gather each week in a simple school gymnasium to share life and faith with the students at Southaven Intermediate School. What begins with music, games, familiar handshakes, and fun comes to a life changing moment of decision. The familiar meets the eternal as students are given the opportunity to make a decision to begin a relationship with the savior of their souls and there has not been a shortage of students that are ready to receive.
With over 99 declarations of faith this year, the students at Southaven continue to be eternally impacted as they are discipled each week and encouraged to share their faith with others. The school’s motto is to create the leaders of tomorrow. With the partnership of Brown Missionary Baptist Church, they are raising leaders that will continue to declare the glory of God for generations to come.
“The amazing thing about KiDs Beach Club® is that week after week, we get to feed that decision (to follow Christ) and disciple them right in their own school,” said Jeffery Jackson, Associate Pastor at Brown Missionary Baptist Church during KBC’s Train Up A Child Winter Conference.
Not only are the children of Southaven Intermediate School being impacted by this ministry, but the families of these students are also being eternally changed. Several parents of these students have now united with Brown Missionary Baptist Church. The gospel continues to flourish in Southaven and throughout the communities that KiDs Beach Club® has had the opportunity to partner with.

"The gospel is not the little flame and other things set it on fire. It’s the other way around. A program like KiDs Beach Club® is the flame that is set on fire by the gospel,” said Dr. Rick Nichols, Senior Pastor at Wildwood Baptist Church.
Dr. Nichols and several volunteers from his church share the gospel and disciple children each week during their Beach Club at Moss Elementary School. They wanted to intentionally make sure that there was a connection for the students and their families to join them at church. In order to do this, they changed their club day to Wednesday and started offering meals before their Wednesday evening services so they could invite students and their families to join them for dinner after club each week.
Through this simple adjustment Wildwood Baptist Church has experienced overall church growth as families from Moss Elementary have joined the church. “We get to minister on behalf of the King for the kingdom whether they come to our church or not. We are impacting the reputation of Jesus Christ with everything that we do and everywhere that we go,” said Dr. Nichols.
With this in mind, Dr. Nichols encouraged all club volunteers at KBC’s Train Up A Child Winter Conference to not allow the familiarity of the gospel to diminish its power, but to share the gospel boldly with everything that we do and everywhere that we go.

“I was devastated by the lostness of our world,” said Jack Terrell, KiDs Beach Club® President and Founder. “I began the first Beach Club at Bellaire Elementary in Hurst, TX while serving as the Minister of Children at First Baptist Church Euless.”
The Lord began to ignite a passion in Jack Terrell through his experience in the public school. His eyes were opened to the bubble that he had lived in over his 28 years of ministry in local churches. Through this passion, the Lord gave a vision to mobilize the church to go outside of its walls with the message of hope found only in Christ.
Through the years, KiDs Beach Club® has reached over 100,000 children and celebrated over 9,000 professions of faith, but the journey does not end here. God has placed within the hearts of the KBC leadership team to bring the gospel to 100,000 children in over 2,000 communities each week by January 2025.
“We are looking for pioneers,” said Dr. Frank Banfill, Executive Vice President of KiDs Beach Club®. “As we look at what it will take to reach over 100,000 children each week, it is volunteers!”
KiDs Beach Club® is looking for volunteers that are ready to impact our children and bring the gospel of Jesus to every community, everywhere! The Beach P.A.T.R.O.L. team is being assembled to meet this need as an elite group of volunteers that will support the ministry through prayer, administrative tasks, training, reporting, outreach, or logistics. The goal is big, but our God is bigger. The power is in the gospel and as we unite to use our gifts for God’s purposes, we will see His power displayed as He does exceedingly, abundantly beyond what we can think or imagine.
"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19.

“Retirement is not for me,” said Rev. Delmar Bennett. “I’ve already tried that several times and I get bored without new challenges.” Delmar assured guests at his KiDs Beach Club® themed retirement party that while he may be retiring; he was not retiring from Beach Club.
“Delmar very quickly makes a great impression on you. He is passionate about boys and girls coming to know the Lord and he believes KiDs Beach Club® is a great tool for that,” said Christy Hughes, Remote Club Relations Specialist.
KiDs Beach Club® has set a goal of reaching 100,000 students in over 2,000 clubs each week by 2025. In order to achieve this goal, The KBC Beach P.A.T.R.O.L. has been established. This is an elite group of volunteers that are passionate about seeing the gospel in as many schools as possible and that is exactly what Delmar would like to be a part of.
Delmar is the first volunteer for the Beach P.A.T.R.O.L. He will be a part of the outreach team and has already been meeting with churches. “He has a zeal to see every school have a KiDs Beach Club® and these schools have seen many professions of faith,” said Missy Holaday, Club Relations Specialist.
“I want to see the gospel back in schools,” said Delmar. This passion has been a driving force for Delmar as he begins his ministry on Beach P.A.T.R.O.L. There are many Beach P.A.T.R.O.L opportunities. Whether you are already serving faithfully each week and have more time to give or you can’t make a weekly after school club meeting but still are passionate about the cause, KiDs Beach Club® has a place for you on the Beach P.A.T.R.O.L. team.
How can they preach, unless they are sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of those that bring good news! Romans 10:15
“I would encourage anyone to consider signing up for Beach P.A.T.R.O.L so that you can see how God is moving in the lives of children and their parents,” said Rev. Delmar. "The enthusiasm I feel comes from serving our all powerful God. With Him all things are possible. During our club meetings, God opened the doors for us to introduce the Gospel to almost 100 children with the help of over 30 volunteers who have a heart of servanthood. They are the ones who deserve our applause." We invite you to bring the Good News of the gospel to as many children as possible with us.
