What is a PowerClub?
A PowerClub is a children’s ministry designed specifically for Pentecostal and Charismatic churches because of the emphasis on the Holy Spirit. They are started and led by individuals who desire to see children evangelized, filled with the Holy Spirit, grounded in the word of God, operating in the gifts of the Spirit, learning to hear God’s voice and be led by His Spirit, and becoming active, functioning members in the body of Christ while they are still children.
PowerClubs, in general, are the outreach arm of Kids in Ministry International. But specifically they are local children’s ministries in a wide variety of communities around the world. They are started and conducted by individuals (ordinary moms and dads, children’s ministers, and other adults who love kids) who desire to see children evangelized, filled with the Holy Spirit, grounded in the word of God, operating in the gifts of the Spirit, learning to hear God’s voice and be led by His Spirit, and becoming active, functioning members in the body of Christ while they are still children.
PowerClubs Can Meet Anywhere
Though some are a part of local churches, most PowerClubs are held in backyards, neutral locations, schools, slums, ghettos, and homes. While some of the leaders are experienced children’s ministers, many others have never worked with children before, but have caught the vision of taking children further into the things of the Spirit. In many places starting an official PowerClub outside a local church is in essence “planting a church of children” because it is likely the only church many of these children will ever have the privilege of going to.

What is the PowerClub Training Course?
These sixteen sessions come from the larger training course School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry. If you have already purchased the SSCM course, you do not need to purchase this too! This abbreviated course is for those who desire to start a PowerClub without having to go through the entire 45 hour SSCM course. If you think you may want to go through the entire SSCM course someday, please note, the PowerClub sessions are a part of that course and you would be purchasing these sessions twice. You may just want to get the full SSCM course now.
The PowerClub Training course is also available on DVD, and would be a perfect way to train your entire children’s ministry team to do children’s ministry efficiently and effectively. To view the DVD sessions click here.
As of January 2013, there were 1084 PowerClubs ministering to over 34,000 boys and girls in 18 nations on 6 continents. Is God calling you to raise up a supernatural generation through a PowerClub? To read more about the impact of our PowerClubs around the world,click here .
