BRING IN ONE OF OUR KOZ SPEAKER TEAM TO YOUR EVENT
Kids Outdoor Zone offers high caliber speakers for teaching, workshops, and keynote around the country. For years KOZ has been a win-win for men’s conferences, Iron Sharpens Iron, Beast Feast, Lifeway Men, Wildfire Weekend, church conferences, and more.
Our goal at KOZ when speaking is to engage, equip, and motivate men. The stories we hear after our speaking include the rescue, revival, and renewal of the men’s hearts. In all our conversations with the men’s ministry leaders around the country the comments are the same, “If the men in the church do not step up, we lose,” Robert Lewis.
Our program includes a table with information on the Kids Outdoor Zone (KOZ) Outdoor Ministry for Boys. They can learn more about this growing outdoor adventure and how easy it is to start one in their church.
