The King’s Daughters and Sons (KDS) is an interdenominational Christian service organization with the International Headquarters located in Chautauqua, New York. It is comprised of approximately 4000 members, about 250 or so of whom are under the age of 18.
In the words of our participants, our Clergy Renewal Week provided, “a serene, peaceful, congenial, worry-free setting with emotional, spiritual, intellectual, artistic stimulation available. All in the context of a small, intimate community.”
“It feels so good to laugh and enjoy.”
“Considering I had no idea about what to expect coming here, it has been an eye-opening experience. I have been introduced to the ideas that our world can look like CHQ and now to make it happen. I have been given a vision for service in many ways for when I leave here….”
“Chautauqua is a dream that you will not be able to explain when you wake up. You just need to experience it……”
Every day we try to speak and act like Jesus in our daily lives. There are songs and hymns about being like Jesus, and we pray that we will be like Jesus as we help and care for others. We try to be a witness and example of what we have been taught; growing up in a Christian home and teaching our children likewise.
