One Way to Partner With Parents

You and I become like the people we hang with. The same thing is true concerning our children. Our kids become like who they hang with. If they hang with kids who love the Lord, they will love the Lord. The reverse is also true. I have had parents say this to me, “I decide who my kids’ […]

“Nobody wants to be my friend.”

We have all heard these words, either from our own kids or children at church. These words pull at our heart strings. When we hear these words, it should be a call to action for us.  For many kid’s shyness is a huge problem.  They are afraid of rejection and many times see themselves as victims.  That […]

You’ve Got A Friend In Me

These words, “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” come alive thanks to the success of  “Toy Story” by Pixar. If you’ve seen any of the movies, and now hear this song what does it create in you? How about GIANT, warm, fuzzies! Friendship is a huge part of our life. Some friendships last a lifetime.  Some help us on […]

Are You A DIY-er?

When tackling projects, are you the type of person who will figure it out (no matter how long it takes, get what you need (no matter what the cost), and definitely Do-It-Yourself?  In other words, do you love DIY projects? If you do, that is great, but when it comes to your kid’s ministry if you are […]

Stop Being Afraid, IT’S NOT THAT SIMPLE, or is it?

God does not want fear controlling our life. However, fear is all around us and I have especially noticed how kids are afraid of a lot of things these days. Some fears are real and some are imaginary. There is fear of spiders, snakes, monsters and the boogieman. There is fear of dogs, heights and […]

THE KEY to looking beyond what you see

Have you ever had a “problem” that you were facing and it seemed like a giant mountain? Or, maybe you looked at a situation and thought, “How is this going to work out?” We all have had situations and life experiences that seem overwhelming to us. It looks like there is no way out. There […]

Don’t Do It Alone – 5 Steps to an effective KidMin Team

“Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” What was Jesus doing when He said these infamous words? He was building His team. “I have chosen you. You have not chosen me.” This tells me that Jesus was selective about who was on His team. What was Jesus looking for when He was […]
