Rez Kidz is a one-of-a-kind worship experience where whole families gather at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in beautiful Gatlinburg, Tennessee, at the Gatlinburg Convention Center for a two-day retreat and renewal time intended to build up and minister to the whole family.
You will enjoy a totally baby, kid, and family friendly atmosphere with the most sought after names in children's ministry.

Great music for kids that won't drive parents BONKERS!
Jamie Statema and Jason Folkmann—Go Fish—are arguably one of the most unique groups in the music industry. Not only do they make music for children and families, but they create amazing sounds with just their voices and percussion.
For children, Go Fish may be their first real concert experience, complete with lights, backdrops and fog machines. It's a rock and roll show, says the group, tailor-made for kids. "There's a misconception out there of what children's music has to be," says Go Fish. "Quite honestly, it doesn't have to be simple. You don't have to dumb down music for kids. Because of that, parents really enjoy this music as well."
Tom (Little Tommy) Toombs
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in SPEECH, LIFE, LOVE, FAITH, and PURITY."
—2 Timothy 4:12
Tom Toombs is not just another funny face. He is an inventive communicator. Preaching, drama, mime, juggling, balloon parables, illusion, comedy and his energetic characters portray the gospel truth. He has been featured in major youth conferences throughout the county and recently on the Rebecca St. James tour. Tom specialized in drama revivals and youth rallies, and is an eloquent teacher to both adults and adolescents.
An award winning ventriloquist, author, storyteller, and musician
For over 35 years, Dennis Lee has used ventriloquism, music, stories, and humor to reach people of all ages with messages that bring laughter, learning, and love.
Dennis Lee has entertained thousands of audiences across the world for over 35 years! He is a gifted, award winning ventriloquist, author, storyteller, and musician from Dallas, Texas . He has performed upwards of 500 shows a year for the last eight years.
As remarkable as that sounds, it is Dennis Lee's humble spirit, contagious enthusiasm, and kind heart that remain his greatest gifts. Dennis Lee has performed for schools, churches, festivals, kids camps, VBS events, PTA programs, and family fun nights. His intention is to have each audience member walk away (no matter their age, size, color, or creed) with their sides aching with laughter, their hearts filled with encouragement, and their lives uplifted and changed for the better.

Our mission is based on Deuteronomy 6:5-7: “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.” (NLT)
Not only must we love God with all our heart, but we must consistently teach our children about the Love of Christ and make it a priority to be in constant conversation about the gospel message. Our mission is to equip families with the tools they can use to strengthen their faith together.
At Rez Kidz, we dream of parents and their children committing together to make their faith a priority. We dream of boys and girls who light up with excitement when they walk through the door and leave in wonder about a King who loves them. We dream of families committing themselves wholeheartedly to the commands of the Lord. We dream of watching the gospel message change lives, one family at a time.
That is our mission: to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to encourage, equip, and build-up families as we glorify our Savior.
