Kidz XL

PREPARING KIDS TO BE GREAT STUDENTS AND PEOPLE

Words cannot describe how blessed I am to have found a place so beautiful and unique like Kidz XL. You hear people tell you about how some significant event or person in their lives came along and changed everything. Well that's what happened to me, Kidz XL changed me....

During my college years at FIU I was blessed to be a part of an amazing church family and group of people that helped mold me into the husband, father, and man that I am today. Being a college athlete, Kidz XL allowed me an opportunity to mentor and be around kids; sha...

Kidz XL has changed me for the best and it’s been a process that is still in the works till this day. Kidz XL has been through many changes since my 1st year and the camps 1st year in 2005 with Rollo and Abner in charge, to 2007 when Nick came along to the current staf...

Kidz XL was just another summer camp for the child who couldn’t stay home alone. In a short two months, this child was raised by mentors from all over the US to be a man. In addition, they introduced him to the love of God. From then, the kid grew to be mentor as well,...

I was a proud employee of the KidzXL family from 06/2007 until 08/2010. KidzXL played a pivotal role in my growth as a young man who was away from home, and attending college at Florida International University.  KidzXL not only helped alleviate some of the financial s...

I took a year off between undergrad and graduate school to pursue another passion of mine, coaching. KidzXL was the perfect outlet for me as I was trying to iron out the next steps for not only my career, but to continue challenging mys...

Kidz XL has been my safe haven for about 7 years now. I started off as a camper, made my way to become a CIT (coach in training) and now I'm blessed to be working there as a coach. I entered Kidz xl very lost, as I was going through some of my toughest years I found my...

My experience with Kidz XL was life-changing. As a part of the original team of counselors, I was able to work with the program from the ground up and see the immediate benefits to the kids in the program. I came from humble beginnings myself, so being able to provide...

I became a Kidz XL camper in 2010 and a captain in 2012. I can honestly say I've become a different person. Kidz XL has not only taught me more about God but about love, kindness, and faith. My coaches were my role models and my friends have become family. After my las...

Founder of Kidz XL and Pastor of True Vine Christian Church

In August 2004, after 16 years as a full-time youth pastor from San Diego, California, I embarked on an new and amazing journey as the Senior Pastor of La Vina del Senor in Miami, Florida which is now known as True Vine Christian Church, a member of the Evangelical Free Church of America and the parent agency of Kidz XL. At the time, La Vina was meeting in a rented 2nd floor area of Olympia Heights Methodist Church located on the border of the Westchester/Olympia Heights communities of Miami in the 33165 zip code, a population of over 100,000 people within a 3 mile radius of the church. 80% of the homes in these communities speak Spanish as the primary language spoken at home. In addition, obesity in children in these communities existed in epidemic proportions. The reality that most of the children who grew up in these homes could not get help with their English-only homework combined with our love to play and provide the 60 minutes a day of healthy physical activity that every child needs provided the opportunity that was needed to start Kidz XL. In reflection, Kidz XL was simply a divinely inspired response to Miami's vast need for programs for children and families in need. In the midst of great cultural and social-economic challenges of these under-served and under-resourced communities of Miami, Kidz XL has been blessed and honored to have played a vital role in helping develop some of the most beautiful and glorious stories of transformation in all of Miami.
