ABOUT CUFI KIDS
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of CUFI Kids is to teach the future generation the importance of loving and blessing Israel. CUFI Kids is a new initiative that is actively developing ways to teach children about the Biblical and moral reasons they should support Israel.
PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
CUFI Kids began with the first ever Night to Honor Israel Jr. held at Cornerstone Church in the fall of 2006. Children’s Pastor, Brett Owen, decided to host the event after his life-changing experience in Israel. Last summer, Pastor Brett Owen in partnership with Kellie Copeland Swisher, aka Commander Kellie, held the first ever Camp CUFI during the CUFI Washington DC Summit. The success of that educational experience has brought CUFI Kids where it is today.
