Our History

Project Jesus for Children was born in Costa Rica in 2001 as God placed in the the hearts of the Davidson Family the vision for reaching Latin America’s most valuable resource, her children, with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Two months after «The Story of Jesus for Children» film came out in Spanish, it was played on national television in Costa Rica on the most widely viewed channel during Easter week.

Scrolled several times across the bottom of the sreen were the words:“If you want this film shown in your school, please call the following number.”

Project staff received calls for two hours straight, and, with that kind of a send off, all that was needed was the recommendation of the national education authorities.

God granted us favour with the Archbishop of Costa Rica, and also with the Ministry of Education and they gave the project letters of recommendation.

Within a couple of years the ministry had expanded to include Nicaragua, Honduras, and Panama, as well as Costa Rica. We continue to seek God’s favour with the educational authorities as the work moves forward.

From 2001 to 2012, Project workers showed the Jesus film for Children 40,000 times in 6,000 schools to more than 1,900,000 children.

But showing the Jesus film once to students wasn’t enough for the teachers. They requested educational material that would help them show the film to their students and follow-up on the students’ important encounter with Jesus. In 2012, VITAL VALUES WITH JESUS was produced by Project Jesus for Children and since then the Project’s work has shifted.

The goal will always be to reach the children with Jesus’ message of love and salvation, though now the Project focuses on supporting the teachers as they show the Jesus film for Children and teach VITAL VALUES WITH JESUS to the students all year long.

God’s calling for Project Jesus for Children

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:16 NIV

God wants the children to learn of Jesus, and what better place than in school? We, at Project Jesus for Children, believe God is leading us to set goals for 25% growth each year (with the exception of every 7th year).  The includes expanding into new areas as well as into new countries.

Statement of beliefs

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one, holy, universal and apostolic Church.

We confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and we look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
