Brief History of Giant Cow
Giant Cow Ministries is the next chapter of Children's Conferences International which began in 1999 when Michael Denton and family put their passion for children to work towards a specific vision: to provide engaging and high-quality children's programs at state homeschool events. What began with a single event at a small convention in the south grew rapidly, and in 20 years of ministry, Giant Cow has ministered to thousands of kids at hundreds of events in the United States, Canada, Guatemala, and India. In 2004, the organization came under the direction of Stephen Leckenby.
In the summer of 2014, CCI re-branded as GIANT COW Children's Ministries. Stephen Leckenby, with key assistance from Children's Pastor Ben Fowlkes initiated re-branding with a renewed focus to have ongoing impact for the Kingdom of God in the lives of children. So what is the MISSION of the GIANT COW? Our slogan, although meant to include a bit of humor, truly communicates what it is that we want to do: Bring the Milk and the Meat of God's Word to Kids. This includes a new focus on discipleship as well as events that aren't just primarily attached to large conferences. In addition, GIANT COW is building a network of children's ministers with the goal of partnering with the local church to provide exceptional children's ministry events in local communities and to provide all the promotional and follow-up tools to maximize the ministry potential of such events.
We have emerged as one of the leading providers of Children's ministry at Christian gatherings, churches, and Christian Events. We believe children deserve every opportunity to learn and grow spiritually. Investing in the lives of children is investing in the future. The future of our nation depends on the impact we make, or fail to make, in the lives of our children.
