thinkSMALL Foundation trains and empowers local churches to reach, protect and disciple children. We use Gospel-based Drug Prevention and Child Protection outreaches and curriculum to bring children into an empowered life in Christ.
Since 2007, we have trained over 1,000 churches in 8 nations! As a result, over 711,945 children and adults have come to Christ...and over 480,851 have entered discipleship for the first time in their lives!
Our thinkSMALL Bangkok team went to train a hill tribe in Central Thailand through a local church in Suan Phung Ratchaburi– close to Burma. The population of the hill tribe includes non-citizens, Karean Thai, and Burmese residents who live in an environment similar to a refugee camp. The area is at high risk for abuse and trafficking,confirmed by stories our team heard. The area is only three hours from Bangkok but most people in this area have never seen or been to Bangkok before.We trained the local church on our Child Protection Workshop, which included the pastoral team of 30 at the church as well as parents. They learned of God’s calling to protect children, their Biblical rights and developed a child protection policy for the church.
We then trained the children at a Child Empowerment outreach to equip them to defend against abuse and trafficking. There were 85 children, with 5 non believers; all 5 gave their hearts to Jesus Christ and entered into to discipleship, learning about Jesus and attending church every week.
