KidStand became a non-profit organization in 2005. Jessie Beebe, President and Founder of KidStand had been a Children’s Pastor since 1998. Jessie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Theatre – her initial goal was to “make it big on Broadway” but God had other plans.
In 2003, Jessie had Brain Surgery, during her recovery the vision of KidStand was born. God called Jessie to redirect her love for reaching kids for Christ and the performing arts to go beyond the church she was ministering at, and evangelize to kids around the world. Jessie felt lead to begin taking shows into the public schools teaching on taking a Stand for great character while inviting the students to off campus events where she could share the Gospel. For the next 6 years, God blessed and grew KidStand.
Due to the awesome amount of invitations for KidStand, God lead the KidStand team to start their own KidStand performance group. So, since 2010 KidStand has been training and discipling amazing kids and teens in the KidStand dances, songs and dramas as well as teaching them how to minister to children at KidStand events.
KidStand has been blessed to perform in many different school districts, Christian festivals such as KLTY’s Celebrate Freedom Dallas, Celebrate Freedom Atlanta, Creation Fest West, T.D. Jakes MegaFest, and Churches such as Potter’s House and Gateway. We have also partnered with amazing Evangelist such as Andrew Palau and Reid Saunders and and have been blessed to perform overseas with them in Uganda, Africa, Haiti, Nepal and Honduras. God continues to give new vision to expand KidStand and we are so excited to see Him move through our new programs and all the events where he guides us to minister.
