King’s Kids is an international, interdenominational, relationship based movement of Christian volunteers who share a common commitment to a defined purpose, values and relationships. It is a ministry of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) that functions in partnership with families, churches and other like minded ministries.


King’s Kids International began in 1976 in Hawaii under the leadership of Dale and Carol Kauffman. Since then, hundreds of teams have ministered throughout Asia, the Pacific, the Americas, Western and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. King’s Kids teams have reached out to serve the poor and have impacted the wealthy. They have proclaimed God’s love at a wide variety of national and international outreaches and events.


NIKO means to conquer or overcomePhase One – Mobilize: Camps and outreaches mobilize Christian young people, giving them opportunities to share their faith with others and to participate in extending the Kingdom of God.

Phase Two – Disciple: Year round discipleship programmes help young people and families to strengthen their relationship with God and live in a way that brings joy to His heart.

Phase Three – Reach: A variety of clubs, youth activity centres and streetside church programmes share the love of God with children and teens who have little or no contact with a Christian witness.

Phase Four – Care: KKI mercy ministries around the world are involved in practically serving the needs of young people such as street kids, orphans, children with Aids, child soldiers and teen prostitutes.
