About H4Kz

Our vision is to pour out our lives that “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea”(Isaiah 11:9) by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ globally at public schools and community outreaches.

Sending Church

In 2007 Calvary Chapel Mission Viejo (CCMV) sent Keith and Chona  Sharp and their two children, Cherish (12) and Mark (10) on a short-term mission  to the Philippines.  The Sharp's  were shocked by the need, surprised by the open door to evangelize at the public  schools, blessed with the use of the schools' facilities, help of the teachers,  conducting ministry to the kids.  Most encouraging was the heartfelt response of both children and adults  as the Holy Spirit moved in their hearts in response to the timeless Gospel  message.

 

 

Background

Keith's activity in foreign missions and acquaintance with  missionaries and missions in the Philippines for many years led to his 1994  marriage to Chona, a worship leader and teacher.  Keith also served on the Missions  Counsels at Calvary Chapel Irvine and Calvary Chapel Mission Viejo.  There interest in missions along with  Chona's gift and experience serving on worship teams plus their experience as  Vacation Bible School (VBS) servant leaders and their children's experience  participating in VBS many years provided an idea for ministry.

 

 

Training & Outreach

During the 2006-07 school year, with the encouragement of CCMV Senior  Pastor Travisano, Keith, Chona, and family prepared a VBS program to  present.  Keith and Chona also  trained at Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) and coordinated with CEF personnel  in the Philippines to team with them on their outreaches.  With the help of Pastor Cuenca, who  married them in 1994, they presented their family VBS to an overwhelming  response at the Dumpsite Church ministering to hundreds of children living, many  as scavengers, alongside the Lapu-Lapu City dump.

 

 

Low Tide Appointment

The Sharp family sailed with a team of national pastors and CEF  volunteers for tiny Pangan-an island.  Unable to land due to shallow water, stopping at tiny Gilotungan Island  to await high tide, the Sharp's stumbled on the principal of the local public  grade school.   She agreed to  presentation of their ministry on condition it be limited to the children in  school that day.  The principal  explained many island kids were cutting school to scavenge for shells to sell  for a few pesos.  She intended to  entice the scavengers to return to school.  The Sharps' agreed presenting to the school kids first, then opened the  gates, presenting a second time for the scavenger kids.  At the conclusion, all the island was  invited to a showing of the Jesus Film on a bed sheet at the school's outdoor  stage.

 

 

Jesus Film

During the Jesus film, the islanders stood in hushed silenced,  soaking up the gospel presentation in their heart language, Cebuano. Many respond to the message, wanting to  know more. Pastor Cuenca taught the  responders until past midnight.  Arriving at Pangan-an Island the next day, the little ministry again  received an overwhelming response as did the Jesus Film.

 

 

Scavenging Kids

The Sharps' hearts were touched by the plight of the poor scavenging  children.  Scavenging is the only  practical alternative for children of families who cannot afford to send them to  school.  The kids scavenge firewood  for cooking, scrap metal, glass, plastic or on Gilotungan Island, shells that  can be sold for a few pesos to help sustain the family.

 

 

H4Kz born at CCMV

H4Kz's (Hope 4 Kidz International), program  was born to minister to these scavenging kids when Calvary Chapel Mission Viejo  generously responded to the Sharps' proposal.  Filipino national pastors and churches  also came alongside to mentor and disciple responders. Several pioneering, evangelical Christian  churches have sprung-up following these outreaches.  The Sharps' are praying God open the  door for full-time Christian service for them among the world's most needy.

 

  

Where We Serve

We are currently ministering at the Lapu-Lapu City Dump and Bamboo Village on Mactan Island, on tiny Gilotungan and Pangan-an Islands, at the Baring Barangay on Olango Island, under the San Martin Bridge on Mindanao Island and in Angeles City on Luzon Island in the Philippines.

 

 

Goal

Our desire is to pour out our lives that, “... the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9) by sponsoring impoverish kids, conducting Christian outreaches, providing personal discipleship. H4KZ brings God's divine word to people, towns, and communities, people that have never been personally introduced to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. H4KZ focus is on God's people growing God's kingdom, where God alone is worshipped and honored as Lord and Savior. H4KZ seeks to reach the least and the lost, based on our worldwide vision to bless the World's bottom billion. We seek to establish pioneering pastors in areas without an evangelical Christian church, mentoring sponsored kids, reaching out to parents, establishing evangelical enclaves among the un-churched. H4KZ strives to minister to the whole person, helping people find the Lord, nurturing new Christians with food for their souls, providing children's worship services for kids from grade school through high school, seeking to empower church and community leaders. Our vision is to bless every parent, child and person longing for a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
