We Hear the Cry!



Because we understand that ministry to the world's children can only be as strong as those doing the ministry, discipleship for pastors and leaders is an important part of our plan.


We are blessed to partner with the Vessels of Honor (VOH) School of Ministry pioneered by HCI Co-Founder, Pastor Ron Ives in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Our new Discipleship Director, Caleb Ives is in the process of developing an international package of discipleship that will equip pastors at every ministry base to lead their people with knowledge and understanding of God's love, ways and purposes. We know effective children's ministry can only happen through strong churches led by men and women of God who know God's Word. It is a wise investment!


VOH graduated 15 pastors in Guatemala from the two year course in 2013, working with Host Ministry, Larry & Marla Johnson of Flames of Fire Ministries. In 2016 VOH will network with Emmaus School of the Bible to begin new discipleship schools for pastors and leaders in both Guatemala and Nigeria.


If you are a church in the USA or Europe with a hunger to equip and disciple your leaders/congregation, contact us to learn about EBS or VOH Intensives – weekend saturation in God’s Word! Contact HCI Discipleship Director, Caleb Ives at calebives@heartcryinternational.org.
