DivorceCare for Kids: how it meets a HUGE need at local churches



DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) is a comprehensive, church-based program that equips local churches to help children of divorce. It’s designed to work in parallel with the adult DivorceCare program (although DC4K can also run as a stand-alone program).

DC4K created this blog to help church leaders and volunteers understand the issues faced by kids caught in the crossfire of a family breakup.

I developed DC4K for Church Initiative, and thought you would enjoy watching a short video that will give you a sense of how the program works. The video speaks to parents considering enrolling their children, but it will give you a good overview of the DC4K program design.



We’ve equipped thousands of churches worldwide with the DC4K curriculum. If you’d like more information about launching a DivorceCare for Kids ministry at your church, you can visit the Start a Group section of the DC4K website.

  1. This program is phenominal! I have seen the healing in countless kids through the years as the leaders give them godly perspective to the hurts they have in their heart. Nothing like it!

    • Thanks Robyn. We appreciate the ministering you have done with DC4K. Many kids in Oregon are succeeding because of you and your team.

  2. I agree there is a tremendous need for the children of a divorce. Isn’t there a program for teens? We have more teens than younger children right now. I am looking for ideas please.
