KIMI Ambassador at Large and Founder of PowerClubs

john_bose_christine_pamelaMeet Pamela Ayres from Newport News, Virginia. Pamela’s gifts have made room for her in Kids in Ministry International through her loyal and faithful service through the years. She is our official Ambassador at Large and KIMI International PowerClub Coordinator.

Founder of PowerClubs in the Nations

It was Pamela who first caught the vision of establishing PowerClubs in the nations. She has tirelessly worked to develop the pattern of PowerClub services and the method of training their leaders. Pamela facilitates many of the foreign translations of KIMI curriculums, editing them for leaders in simpler cultures.

She Wears Many Hats

It’s hard to put Pamela in any category in KIMI. There is so much that she does and is in the leadership team. She is a mentor to many of our leaders. She is our primary intercessor, and faithful leader of intercessory prayer teams. She is a prophetic voice into KIMI and many of the ideas that we use and implement came through her prophetic voice. But her first love is PowerClubs and the nations.

She has been able to cross denominational boundaries and represent KIMI in a variety of places and ways from the 4/14 Movement, Voice for the Martyrs, and the US Center for World Missions speaking at some of their international events.

How Pamela Came into KIMI

Pamela Ayres was in women’s prison ministry when the Lord thrust her into children’s work through Becky Fischer in her local church. She had ministered to children in her home and in church prior to meeting Becky, but never saw children’s ministry as her destiny in God. In 1999, she was impacted during a children’s meeting led by Becky and felt the Holy Spirit direct her to begin working with her.

After becoming captured by the vision of equipping children to walk in the supernatural power of God, she mentored directly under Becky, eventually accompanying her on missions trips to train national leaders.  As she worked with Becky in the nations, she understood the difficulty of learning children’s ministry just by attending a conference, especially since the number of children were very large. How could we duplicate our ministry on a small, simple level so that anyone could do what we do?

Until then “PowerClub” was merely the name chosen by Becky for her local church ministry. After Becky returned to North Dakota, Pamela began ministering to children in a local fellowship and asked to use the name. It was there, in Apple Hill PowerClub, that the small group format was developed. When she was asked to go out on her first solo mission trip to Kenya, the idea of training others to do this outreach type of children’s ministry was fixed in her mind. She visited a successful African network of children’s ministry called Children in Christ, took their training along with our Indian and Kenyan directors and PowerClubs began to develop, step by step.

From that moment till today, Pamela has never stopped her pursuit of training others to capture a generation for Christ. The spread of PowerClubs through the nations has largely been the result of Pamela’s vision and efforts. She has since written a 16 wk curriculum for KIMI called “Jesus Our Messiah” and a PowerClub training book called “Teach Me to Know My God.” She co-taught the original classes in KIMI’s School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry, and for years helped teach in the annual family conferences KIMI conducts each year.
