Moises Alvarez

Local License

I am Moises Alvarez, Children’s Pastor, local licensed minister, Texico District CM Section 4 leader, a product of the ministries of Life Challenge UPC during the 80s and 90s: bus ministry, Sunday school, youth ministry and Bible Quizzing. Now dedicated as a Sunday school teacher, bus ministry volunteer, kids street ministry leader, kids discipleship ministry leader, and mentor for kids.

My Pastor is Dan Smelser of Odessa Texas. We are in the Texico District (West Texas and New Mexico).

I am passionate about seeing children transformed by the power God from the inside out in the community and in the church. Transformed through receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, being baptized in Jesus’ name, and living for God.

I am married to Sylvia, who was also won to God through bus and youth ministries. We both served together in Sunday school for years before getting married in 2002. We both enjoy ministering to children in whatever setting. Sylvia is a huge help and partner in ministry.

Our ministry focuses on child evangelism and discipleship. We have implanted strategies in our church and have helped other churches implement them as well. We train churches on these strategies:

  • Blitzing- outreach parade in new neighborhoods
  • Kidz Connect – games and snacks in a new neighborhood
  • Inside Out Street Ministry – kids church in new neighborhoods
  • Van routes – establishing routes in new neighborhoods
  • NOLO Kidz – discipleship classes for kids
  • Power Hour – evangelistic Sunday school
  • Follow up – visiting the visitors
  • Mentorship – training kids for and in ministry

MOE (for Kids) is our ministry name when we travel which stands for Ministry Of Evangelism (for Kids). My wife and I do action songs, gospel illusions, object lessons, comedy skits, fun games, illustrated sermons, puppets, and altar calls. We have incentive prizes for kids. We minister to children and in family settings.

We have been blessed to conduct children’s camps, children’s crusades, teacher training seminars, and speak in children’s ministry conferences in various districts and in our own district. I have written several kids ministry booklets which I make available at no cost that cover child evangelism and discipleship strategies.

Some of our references are: Lloyd Squires and Kim Ramsey who are our mentors. Other references are Children’s Evangelists Vickie Oliver and Jumpin’ Josh Combs. Some District Children’s Ministries Directors are from Louisiana: Tommy Parker and from Texico: Brandon Worley.
