Join AOK

Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Adventist Outreach Kids (AOK) for the 2018-19 year. We are now in the late application period, which runs from mid October to early February. Please check out the eligibility rules and guidelines below. We strongly believe that God willing, this AOK year will be another successful & exciting one! We're so excited about the future of AOK and cannot wait for you to join us!


AOK Application Rules & Guidelines

  • Any child who is of 10 years of age or older on or before October 31st, 2018 is eligible to join AOK for the 2018-19 AOK year. The interested applicant will need to fill out the online AOK Application Form here. A signature from at least one parent/legal guardian is required on the application form. Once we receive your application, we will review it and contact you with more information. If you decide to join AOK, you will then need to fill out a hard copy AOK Records Form. PLEASE NOTE: the application deadline for the late application period is Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 11:59 PM. After this time, applications will close for the 2018-19 AOK year and will not reopen til July 2019 for the 2019-20 AOK year.

  • Any child who does not meet the age requirement above for joining AOK is eligible to join the AOK "Mini Squad", our junior AOK organization. The Mini Squad joins AOK on almost all nursing home programs and at certain meetings and events. Parents, if your child(ren) is interested in joining the Mini Squad, please shoot us an email at [email protected] and go ahead and fill out the AOK Mini Squad Records Form (hard copy). Mini Squaders do not need to fill out the AOK Application Form. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact Adaeze Ibeanu, Vice President of AOK Mini Squad, at [email protected].

  • Please do note that even if you/your child was an AOK member last year or anytime during AOK's existence, they will still need reapply to join AOK by filling out the AOK application form online. This will help us to get to know your child(ren) better and how they wish to serve God through AOK.
  • Since email is AOK's main method of communication, every AOK (not Mini Squad) is required to have an email account. It can be their own personal one, or one belonging to an older sibling in AOK. It cannot be a parent's email account, as we have learned that it's not very convenient and can cause a communication breakdown. It is strongly recommended that all AOKs get a Gmail account, as we do use Google Drive, Docs and other Google services frequently. This year, we will be test driving Google Classroom for internal AOK communications and task management. AOK has [email protected] Gmail accounts available through our church's G Suite for Nonprofits subscription, so if you like for your child to get an email account that is monitored and controlled, please do contact Noble Obodum at [email protected] and he can set one up. We would like every AOK to have access to their own personal email account, or at least one of a sibling in AOK. 
  • We also use Remind for AOK communication. Remind is a text messaging system specifically designed for schools but applicable in many situations. The cell phone number(s) provided in your AOK/AOK Mini Squad Records Form will be used for Remind. We strongly recommend that both parents and AOK members who have iOS or Android smartphones download the Remind app to best keep track of all AOK announcements and updates. You can learn more about Remind at their website, www.remind.com

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at [email protected]. Thank you again for your interest in joining AOK! Please continue to keep AOK in your prayers. We really want the Lord to guide and lead us as we seek to serve Him. Thanks & may God bless!
