Walk Through Paper!

In this Kidology Lab, Karl Bastian, the Kidologist - shows you an amazing trick you can do for your kids, with a bonus fun gag that always gets a laugh. Without cutting the edges of a normal piece of paper, Karl will show you how to cut a hole in the paper large enough for an entire person to pass through. Sounds impossible!

Kidmin Talk #097 - June 13th, 2017
Karl Bastian, aka the Kidologist, from Kidology.org invites Pastor Craig Wilson onto the show to talk about creative ways to reach the kids who don't go to your church. Incredible ministry in church is great - but what about the children who will never walk through your doors? Don't they need to learn about Jesus too? How can you creatively reach them?

Kidmin Talk #096 - June 1st, 2017
Karl Bastian, founder of Kidology.org, is joined by Stanley Mearse, a veteran children's pastor and frequent creative consultant to Karl and contributor to Kidology products. Stanley is super creative and has some great insights on how to Gain, Train and Retain volunteers!

Karl welcome kids pastor Philip Hahn on the show. Like Karl, Philip got his start in kidmin as a child, a kids pastor PK! Both of these guys are passionate about training kids to serve - since they are both in ministry today because they started young! So the topic today is ministry by kids not just to kids!

Kidmin Talk #094 - April 18th, 2017
Kidology invites Canada's Nicki Straza to join Karl Bastian for this episode of Kidmin Talk to discuss how to help kids experience God through our teaching and ministry programming. It's Education vs. Experience.

From The Kidologist, Karl Bastian



How Can You Unleash Your God-Given Creativity?

Kidmin Talk Podcast

Everyone is creative. It is part of the image of God that He has given us as His prized creation - but not everyone feels creative. What's the secret? Like a muscle, creativity needs to be flexed and exercised in order for it to work its magic! 


Speaking of magic, I invited Johnny Magic onto my podcast for a Kidmin Talk on the topic of creativity. John Mobley is one of the most creative people I know - so eavesdrop in on our conversation as we talk about how we shake creative ideas loose when we need them! 

Whether you are planning a creative lesson or trying to solve a ministry problem creatively - you'll gain some insight on how to think about things differently and come up with fresh ideas! 

Join the conversation!
