Frontier Kidfest is the first event of the 2019 Kidfest season and will take place at the Westin Hotel in Irving, Texas April 5-7, 2019.
Children’s ministry leaders from churches in Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, South Central Hispanic Region and the Heartland Region will take their groups to Kidfest for a weekend encounter with the Holy Spirit. The weekend includes four dynamic church services designed just for kids and geared to their liking.
“Kidfest is an awesome opportunity for children to enjoy uninhibited worship and praise, with hundreds of their peers, as they together proclaim to serve a God without limits,” said Tony Lane, coordinator of children’s ministries for the Church of God. “Every year, hundreds of boys and girls are filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit at Kidfest events around the country.”
“Church of God International Youth and Discipleship understands the need to target those between the age of 4 and 14 and is doing everything possible to reach those within that ‘4/14 window,’” Lane continued. “Ministry to children has been a priority at Youth and Discipleship for many years and Kidfest has been a ministry since 2002 in Texas. Since then, Kidfest has expanded to four locations in the United States, as well as influencing similar ministries internationally.”
According to Lane, Kidfest 2019 will be bigger and better than ever before. With the theme, ‘GO BEYOND,” each venue will focus on helping children understand the importance of the meaning of Ephesians 3:20. The guest speaker line-up includes Kidfest favorites: B-Shoc, Anointed, The CREW and more. Remix will again be providing pre-service programming. An addition this year is Josh Denhart, who will share teaching with scientific experiments. David Laflin will minister with illusions. Yoly Pacheco, a ventriloquist, will minister in Spanish and English. Chagy, a crowd favorite, will be also be involved in Frontier Kidfest.
Carolina Kidfest, April 12-14, will once again be held at the Charlotte, N.C. Renaissance Suites Hotel. Midwest Kidfest, April 26-28, is set for the Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio, where space is limited and the cost includes a 3-day admission to the indoor waterpark, as well as the four services. For the eighth consecutive year, Smoky Mountain Kidfest, May 3-5, will convene at the Gatlinburg Convention Center, an earlier site of Winterfest, it’s teenage counterpart. At this location, each group may secure their own lodging. Lodging recommendations, registration, and rooming list forms are all available on the www.mykidfest.com website.
“Winterfest has been ministering to students for 35 years and Kidfest to children for 17 years,” Lane concluded. “Don’t wait until they’re old enough for Winterfest; take them to Kidfest now and reach them before they need rescuing!”
