Fischer is a third-generation Pentecostal on her father’s side and a fourth-generation Pentecostal on her mother’s side. Her grandfather was an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God for 75 years. Fischer was a businesswoman in her native Bismarck, North Dakota for 23 years, the last eight as part-time children’s pastor of her church. In 1999, she moved to North Wilkesboro, North Carolina to join Tasch Ministries International, a ministry that specializes in mission trips for children. After serving as a children’s pastor for Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministries in Wilkesboro, she returned to North Dakota to begin her own ministry, Kids in Ministry International. She is the author of several Sunday School curricula for churches and the book Redefining Children’s Ministry in the 21st Century and her own biographical review of her experiences during the filming of the movie Jesus Camp, My Story.
Fischer’s ministry is part of an “apostolic network” of charismatic churches and ministries known as Harvest International Ministries. This organization is an offshoot of the charismatic movement that believes in the existence of present-day apostles and prophets. The Kids in Ministry website includes teachings from prominent ministers, including Ted Haggard, Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle, Patricia King, Stacey Campbell, Kim Clement, Bill Hamon and Rick Joyner.
Fischer’s ministry also adheres to several Pentecostal traditions and teachings such as promoting Glossolalia or speaking in tongues, spiritual warfare, healing the sick, prophecy, raising of the dead, and exorcism from demonic possession.
From the Kids Inministry Webstie:
“Ms. Fischer is founder and director of The School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry (aka SSCM). SSCM is a 45 hour training course which teaches parents and children’s ministers the basics of great children’s ministry. It also shows them how to teach children to hear God’s voice, become worshipers, prayer warriors, prophetic spokesmen. It also teaches them to heal the sick, operate in the gifts of the Spirit, be led by the Spirit of God, and do signs and wonders. The goal of SSCM is to help kids become active members in the body of Christ while they are still children.”
