Maybe you're a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. Maybe you teach Sunday school, lead a youth group, or maybe you're the friendly neighbor across the street. Wherever you find yourself, we are here for you! We would love to help you by providing effective, easy-to-understand tools that you can use to teach kids about the Bible and guide them in developing a personal relationship with the Lord.
The intent of HSM is to provide tools that will lead youth in developing a personal relationship with God, teach them to apply His Word to their lives, and encourage them to boldly follow Jesus despite worldly influences.
Why the name "Hide and Seek"? Colossians 2:3 says "all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" are hidden in Christ. If you believe in Jesus, God's wisdom and knowledge are not hidden from you, they are hidden FOR you. Wisdom and knowledge are available to all believers... if they choose to seek it. Plus, it's a fun play on words since HSM is a children's ministry. Who doesn't love a good game of hide and seek?
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
(1 Thes. 2:13, 2 Tim. 3:15-17)
Jesus, Our Savior
We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, Savior, Healer, and soon coming King that was born a virgin birth and lived a sinless life. We believe in His miracles, atoning death on the cross, resurrection, and His personal return. (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15)
We believe there is only one God (our Creator) who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19, John 10:30, Eph. 4:4-6, Gen. 1:1)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, and believe He indwells in every believer. We believe that it is the will of God that we live and walk in the Spirit, moment by moment, and gifts of the Spirit are still active today. (John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10; Romans 12:6–8; 1 Corinthians 12:8–10)
One Way to Heaven
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. We are saved by grace through faith and it is the gift of God. Those who choose not to believe will face the judgment of God. (John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Rom. 3:23, 2 Cor. 5:10-11, Eph. 1:7 and 2:8-9)
The Great Commission
We believe evangelism (proclaiming and sharing the message of salvation) and discipleship (helping followers mature in Christ) is a responsibility as a follower of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15)
Have you ever had one of those "aha" moments? Something happens and you know that life will never be the same. Bob and Erin Greenfield have been Christians for far more than a decade, but it wasn't until about 10 years ago that they had one of those moments (or span of time) that made them say aha.
Taking in-depth discipleship courses and spending a countless amount of time digging in God's Word resulted in forever-changed lives. They grew to know the Lord like never before and heard from Him in amazing ways. Through this experience, the Lord not only changed their lives but made a special point to say that kids are never too young to experience the same goodness of God.
And then Hide and Seek Ministries was born; a ministry created so kids don't have to wait until they're adults to have their own "aha" moment.
The founders of HSM are just as ordinary as the next person, but extraordinary in Christ. They have three wonderful children, a cute puppy named Chip, two (sometimes naughty) parakeets, and several fish (including one awesome goldfish named Jeff).
