Let us introduce you to Joshua, Kelli and Noah Rifenburg. This is a family you are going to want to get to know. Joshua will graduate from Baptist Bible College this year and will start traveling with Cool Kids Ministries full-time in January. The Rifenburgs bring a whole new aspect of ministry to Cool Kids. Joshua is a double amputee. He was born with something called fibular hemimelia, meaning his legs were under developed and he only had one bone from the knee down. The long story short is, at the age of 29 he had to make a decision. Do I have my legs amputated or continue to live in severe debilitating pain? After much prayer, the choice was simple, amputation. Today, you will not find a young man or family with more hope or enthusiasm than the Rifenburgs. And when you consider that almost 90% of all special needs families are unchurched, here is a great way to reach out to them and let them know, Jesus loves them. Josh will be doing Kidz Storms, Camps, VBS programs and more, just like all of the rest of our teams. Your kids will be amazed and so will your adults when you watch Joshua roll down a church aisle, hop out of his chair, throw it onto the stage and then hop right up and back into the chair. He is an inspiration to all. If you would like to have the Rifenburgs come to your church and inspire your teachers, leaders and children, then give us a call today. Josh is a great speaker, loves children and wants to help us make a difference in the world, one child at a time. We look forward to partnering with you in future and making a difference in the lives of many.
Joshua and Kelli Rifenburg
