Our vision is to see one million children radically committed to Jesus, experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit, and moving in signs and wonders. At our camps, we teach children to:
Know and love GodChildren who know they are loved by God will do great exploits for Him. Children develop a love for the Word of God and grow in understanding of the death, resurrection, and second coming of Christ.
Experience the power of the Holy SpiritWe pray together for an Acts 2 outpouring of the Holy Spirit and for children to see Jesus exalted in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods. We teach them to heal the sick, reach the lost, prophesy, and pray for other children.
Love, respect, obey, and honor parentsChildren learn to live and love well from Ephesians 5–6 and 1 Corinthians 13.
Live by the Word of GodWe encourage children to deepen their knowledge of Jesus and help them proclaim truth boldly.
Encounter God in worship and prayerThe truths of Luke 18 help children purpose to live out their days in a lifestyle of prayer, praise, power, and the prophetic.

Joshua and Emily Aldy moved to Kansas City in 2012 to join staff at the International House of Prayer and immediately began ministering with the Children’s Equipping Center. They have been serving at Signs & Wonders Camps in various capacities since that year. They have a passion to see each child at camp know Jesus personally and experience Him in life-changing ways! They are excited to be directing the 6–7-year-olds camps this year and are expectant to see what the Lord will do this summer! Joshua serves on worship teams in the IHOPKC Global Prayer Room, and Emily serves as the Bible teacher for all of the Children’s Equipping Center’s Young Messengers Classes.

Nadia is the director of the Children’s Equipping Center. She is also the director of the Little Edition camps for 4–5-year-olds. She and her husband, James, have been married for over 20 years and have five children. Before moving to Kansas City to join staff at the International House of Prayer, they lived in the Chicago area, where they spent 10 years heavily involved in youth ministry. Since moving to KC, Nadia has been on a Malachi 4:6 journey, on which the Holy Spirit wrecked her heart for the little ones, awakening in her this cry: “Prepare for Yourself a generation out of these children, Lord, who will seek You alone!”
