When I first started Kids On A Mission in 2008, I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined it to be like it is today. I wouldn’t have thought that so many people would have heard about it, or that so many people would have been blessed by this small organization started by an 8 year old.  All that our small Kids On A Mission team wanted to do was to serve and bless less fortunate kids and it has turned into a whole lot more.

Fast forward 10 years and Kids On A Mission has grown into something that I didn’t even think was possible.  Here are some of the things that God has been doing through KOAM:

Hundreds of kids have been involved in raising money for various projects; from a $75,000 playground to a $12 backpack, all of which have made a huge difference in this world!

We have kids that are planning and running various parts of our initiative get-togethers and taking leadership roles that stretch and grow them.

We have big teams traveling to the country of Costa Rica every year to minister to kids and share the love of Jesus with them through VBS programs.

Our two initiative teams, clean water and backpacks, have amazing leaders and are working hard to reach their goals to impact the lives of thousands.

Our staff team has 5 people on it currently working to further the growth of KOAM as a whole.

We have kids constantly on public platforms sharing with others about their passion to serve others and make a difference in this world.

Thousands of dollars have been raised and thousands of lives have been touched due to the many people that have participated in and been involved in KOAM.

And these are only a FEW things!!


It is AMAZING to see the things that God has done through this organization… it blows my entire mind. So many people have been blessed, so many kids are stepping outside of their comfort zone and doing big things for God, and so many lives have been touched because of our KOAM leaders. God is doing incredible things through this organization and it is a huge blessing being a part of it.
