Mentoring is the heart of Kaleidoscope Ministries. This is is the most transformational for our families, community, and you! We match godly people from local churches with children and families in our neighborhood to join together in long-term consistent relationships. Mentors walk alongside the child and their family to encourage them to be all God has designed, called, and gifted them to be. In the Bible, Jesus calls everyone who is His follower to mentor (or disciple) others. Jesus practiced this mentoring model with his close followers, and they in turn, imitated it, leading to the spread of the Gospel throughout the world. We provide personal support and training to our mentors through the entire relationship on relevant and researched topics. We are dedicated to equip our mentors for the rewarding endeavor they have committed to.

After School Programs

There is a great need for educational and relational support in our city (see About page for data). Our After school programming is an extension of mentoring and our holistic method to encourage students to be all God has designed, called, and gifted them to be.

R.I.S.E. – Relationships Integrity Scripture Education

An after-school program for Pre-K thru 6th graders focused on discipleship and education in a small group format. Students meet in groups of no more than 4-5 with a leader and assistant(s). Groups participate in Bible Study, activities/play/crafts, and tutoring. Students also enjoy a hearty snack and a take-home dinner.

Mon & Wed 3:30-5:30 PM

L.I.T. – Leaders In Training

LIT is small group Bible Study, Food and Fun for Jr. High and High School students! Students engage in God’s Word in practical and applicable ways, while also building godly relationships through laughter and activities. Literally, LIT is ‘lit’!

Thursdays 7:00-8:45pm.

Non-Program Endeavors

Include Neighborhood Events and Community/School-related Advocacy.

Neighborhood Events

Periodically Kaleidoscope hosts larger community-style events to bless and bring joy to our neighbors. The Annual Trunk or Treat grows every year with the purpose to bless families with a safe night of fun and fellowship together. We also host Friends & Family Nights for those involved in our ministry (mentors, volunteers, parents, students and staff), it brings us together and helps us form deeper friendships and trust with one another.

Community/School Advocacy

We have a partnership with Milam Elementary that involves blessing the staff/students in different ways the Spirit leads. This includes hosting a Book Club each Tuesday with a select group of students. We also aim for our staff and network of volunteers to be about Kingdom work in our community through civic involvement.

Family Advocacy

God provides opportunities to walk with families in ways that cannot be programmed. This is a blessing and opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and show that God cares about personal needs and loves us overwhelmingly.
