Royal Family Kids At Evangel Temple
Our Start with Royal Family Kids
In 1999, Evangel Temple began working with Royal Family Kids (https://rfk.org) because of our burden to minister to children in the foster care system. Royal Family Kids works specifically with children in the system who have dealt with abuse and neglect. Evangel Temple saw the importance of this work and began investing in the mission of Royal Family Kids of “Confronting Abuse & Changing Lives.”
Royal Family Kids Camp
We started by developing and running the first Southern Missouri Royal Family Kids Camp in 2000 and ever since then Evangel Temple has been growing our ministry to this important group of children. Each year, Evangel Temple has invested thousands of dollars and hours of work into these programs. We send dozens of our church family to our RFK Camp to create an incredible week for these campers every year. We have seen God do some incredible things through this ministry over the years and look forward to our next RFK Camp!
Royal Family Kids Mentoring Clubs
We started our Royal Family Kids Mentoring Club in 2016 to increase our work in this area. Our Mentoring Club is for any child 6-12 years of age that attended our Royal Family Kids Camp. Throughout the school year we host a once a month Mentoring Club meeting here at Evangel Temple. Mentoring Clubs are designed to carry the bond that is formed during a RFK Camp week into the rest of the year. Mentors and their Mentoring Club Kids spend an additional four hours together each month doing fun activities and building healthy adult-to-child relationships.
Supporting Evangel Temple Royal Family Kids Ministries
As we increase our work through these programs, Evangel Temple does several special events through out the year to raise funds for our RFK Ministries. We have impacted the lives of hundreds of children over the last seventeen years and we want to see that number grow even more. We invite you to join with us in this important work.
Each year, on Labor Day Weekend, ET hosts our annual Royal Run & Rides (5K & Carshow). This event continues to grow every year with new participants in the 5k Run/1 Mile Walk and dozens of unique cars on display. Our campus is always packed out for good fun, great food and games. It's fun for all ages that we want you to be a part of!

With dozens of games, snacks, prizes and competions for all ages, ET is proud to host this event in our new Family Life Center. We invite you to be part of this fun family event and support RFK in the process!
