Hi! I’m Jody Gafford and welcome to KIMI Oklahoma, a state branch of Kids in Ministry International. Please look around our site to see what we have to offer the churches and families of Oklahoma. You will discover that Kids in Ministry has a completely unique approach to ministry to children with a vision to equip children to do the works of Jesus, create opportunities for them to encounter the presence of God, and be raised to be spiritual champions!
We offer training for church leadership teams, individuals who have a heart for children, and parents who want to be revolutionary in their parenting approach to raising godly children. We also offer unique ministry to children and entire families to worship and encounter God together.

Introducing Ashlynn Edelman : KIMI OK intern
I am thrilled to introduce you to Ashlynn Edelman. Ashlynn is our KIMI Oklahoma Intern.
I have known Ashlynn since she was 14. She was one of our youngest PowerClub Training Graduates in Oklahoma. Ashylnn has always had a heart for children. Her love for Kids In Ministry comes naturally as her momma is one of the best PowerClub leaders I have ever seen in action.
Ashylynn was homeschooled along with her one brother and two sisters. All the Edelman kids have a love for the Word of God, His presence, and are comfortable doing the things that Jesus did.
In her own words, Ashylnn states: ” I have had a passion for children and their understanding for the Father’s heart ever since I was a little girl.” She says that the fire that was stirring inside of her was kindled as she went through the PowerClub training.
Ashlynn has a passion for teaching, and coming alongside with others to share what she has learned. She will be facilitating her first PowerClub training this month, and then along with a few friends will complete the School of Supernatural Childrens Ministry.
These young leaders will make up a team that will join me for the Awakened16, Gathering of the Nations conference in October 2016, where we will be ministering to 200 wonderful Native American children.
Ashlynn has been a wonderful intern as she is humble and willing to learn and grow. She strives to meet needs before they are even expressed, which is such a wonderful asset.
This is a big summer for Ashlynn, as she is getting married. She will soon be Mrs. Caleb Potter. God has great plans for her, of that I am certain. Congratulations Ashlynn, as you facilitate your first training, and lead our group of young leaders at Awakened16. We are so thankful for you.
