is a family ministry of Couples for Christ (CFC). It is a means of supporting CFC’s mission of bringing families back to the plan of God by providing an environment that would assist the CFC parents in fulfilling this mission.
As a response to Jesus’ call, CFC Kids for Christ will help the children enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ in an environment that is fun and life-giving in the company of their friends, and create an atmosphere where Christian values can be shared, practiced, developed, and experienced.
CFC Kids for Christ aims to provide a Christian support environment for kids of Couples for Christ members between the ages of 4-12. Owing to the wide age range covered by the ministry, we have set programs for the Junior Kids, those of ages 4 to 8 and the Senior Kids, those of ages 9 to 12. Realizing that a program for kids needs to be simply understood, exciting and fun-filled, we have put a premium on four characteristics for our Kids for Christ program:
KFC believes that to be able to build an attractive environment to the kids, the program should have the “ 4F ” principle:
It is fun. Activities are enjoyable and they stimulate the child’s creativity, perception, and sensitivity.
It is built on friendships. Activities encourage the members to build strong friendships with one another.
It enhances the faith. Activities are geared towards their relationship with God explain Christian faith elements in kids language.
It allows, free but responsible expression. Activities respect the kids for who and what they are and who and what they can be.

CFC KFC believes…
…That children have a special place in God’s heart.
…That Jesus calls even the little children to have this special relationship with Him.
…That children can grow in their love and trust for God through a meaningful relationship with parents and peers.
…That children must respect and obey their parents and other significant persons in their life.
…That parents, being the prime movers in the child’s life, have the primary responsibility of guiding, teaching, and instilling Christian values.
…In training up the young child in the ways of the Lord and to be responsible at home and in school.
…That the pre-teen stage of a child’s life are crucial formative years, and that Christian values and attitudes can be absorbed and imbibed during these years.
…In the innocence, purity, and simplicity of children; and that God’s plan is to preserve and enhance this nature rather than it be eroded by the ways of the world.
…That children have a strong need for acceptance and belonging; that they need and desire to have caring and loving friends and playmates.
…That children need a healthy concept of themselves, which may be enhanced by their parents acting as primary role models and also by secondary role models from Kids for Christ, Youth for Christ, and Singles for Christ.
…That our children’s God-given gifts and talents need to be recognized and nurtured in a healthy Christian environment that is fun and life-giving.
…That KFC is an integral part of CFC where the pastoral structure of CFC and the support of parents are essential to its success.
