5 Tips for Great Outreach in your Kidmin

In this episode, Carlee and TJ talk with Scott Santee from the Kids’ Clean Water Project through the organization Filter of Hope. They discuss the importance of helping kids understand that outreach isn’t an event, but a way of thinking and a response to what God is doing in their hearts. He gives some great tips and ideas for easy outreach projects you can do with your kids, and he talks about some easy experiential learning experiences, such as no-internet days and humble dinners.
