What is KOTV?

KOTV offers children’s programming for ages 3 months-5th Grade and is available at all services and campuses. At Vineyard we love helping kids grow in their relationship with Jesus and others. Our desire is that every child who comes to KOTV feels loved, valued, and knows they matter. 

What we do

  • Monthly lesson themes that include worship music, games and lessons
  • Outrageously fun events throughout the year to connect KOTV Kids with new friends and adults who guide them into a closer relationship with Jesus.
  • KOTV Cares projects show kids they can make a big difference in the world around them
  • KOTV Kids! Crew volunteer opportunities where Kids Lead Kids and start using their unique gifts and talents to lead others

Safety Check

Your child’s safety is a big deal to us which is why we require all of our volunteers to complete a yearly background check. Each child goes through our check-in process upon arrival, which ensures children are released to the appropriate adult. For added safety, all of our classrooms are locked from the outside, prohibiting anyone who is not approved from entering those areas.

Lisa Kennell - Children's Pastor

Lisa oversees all of the programming for children at Vineyard Church from birth through the 5th grade. She became a follower of Christ at age 17. She is passionate about teaching children about Christ and helping them build a foundation that will result in a lifelong relationship with Him. She and her husband have two sons – Garrett and Logan. During her free time, she loves to spend time with her family, read, travel, and decorate.


KOTV Cares

Vineyard Church is committed to helping the poor, the orphan, and the prisoner. We believe the best way to grow generous hearts is through opportunities to be generous. That’s why we do three missions projects per year. Kids find creative ways to earn money to give as an offering or to purchase the item needed.

Earn a dollar, Give a dollar, Make a difference!
