PEOPLE

Name: Gary and Paula Hays
Country: Thailand
Region: Southeast Asia

Ministry
Their mission is “Making New Young Followers of Jesus to Transform Nations.”

They train and develop leadership teams of local, passionate believers who work full-time to train, equip, accompany and mobilize local church teams.  LOCAL CHURCHES are trained to evangelize, disciple and protect children.

They have developed a series of GOSPEL CHILD PROTECTION workshops and outreaches which have spread into many other countries.

From 2007-2017, they documented over 118,000 children who have made decisions for Jesus.  Over 80% of them have entered discipleship.

Methods and strategies are based on Biblical, scriptural models.   Child Protection training for churches includes workshops and outreaches:

  • God’s Calling to Churches to Protect Children Workshop
  • The Biblical Rights of Children Workshop
  • How to Make a Child Protection Policy Workshop (including scriptural template)
  • Outreaches for Children–Empowering Children Against Abuse, Trafficking and Drugs (outreaches for preschool, primary school and secondary school age children).

Gary and Paula use innovative and creative cross-cultural models that can be contextualized to local communities and to other nations.
