Children's Ministries, Inc.

Bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to Children of the World.

Priscila Saltos
Co-Founder & Director

Priscila, an Ecuadorian born and raised in Guayaquil, has a passion for God, a heart for children, and a vision for this ministry.  God has called her to minister to the street children of Guayaquil.  During the summer of 2002, she attended training at Metro Ministries in New York City.  Metro Ministries, the largest Sunday school in our nation, conducts multiple sidewalk Sunday (and Saturday, etc.) schools to 140,000+ children in New York City.  Their ministry model has expanded to numerous cities in the United States and around the world.  In July of 2002, Priscila returned to Ecuador to begin this ministry model in Ecuador.


Jerry Fielstra

Jerry is an American with a vision and passion for reaching children with the message of salvation.  He met Priscila while on a 2-month mission trip at an orphanage in Guayaquil.  Priscila and Jerry discovered that they shared a common vision and partnered to form Children's Ministries, Inc.  Jerry provides on-going encouragement and accountability for diligent use of funds, equipment and resources through frequent on-sight visits.


Your Prayers and Support

Please remember the children of Ecuador in your prayers.  The need is great, but the potential is beyond our wildest imagination.  God desires to draw all people unto Himself and we have the privilege to becoming a small part in that vision.  We must truly depend upon the Lord for our energy, vision, spiritual insight, and program direction for this exciting mission.

Board Members are available to share the vision for this ministry with your church, Sunday school, or organization, so please contact any listed below.  God continues to multiply your gifts and expand his kingdom beyond our dreams!  Please spread the news about CMI and ask your friends and family to join you in their prayer and support of this ministry.

Your prayers and support are vital to this outreach effort.  Children's Ministries, Inc. is funded 100% by private and organizational donors.  If you feel God leading you to provide financial support, you can be assured that 100% of the funds will be used for direct ministry needs in Ecuador.  

"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them.  For of such is the kingdom of heaven."  Matthew 19:14
