Kidmin Talk #083 - April 19th, 2016
It doesn't take long as a kidmin leader to figure out that children's ministry isn't all fun and games. In fact, it can be downright discouraging. How do you keep yourself "up" and be an encouragement to others when you yourself are facing challenges that fight to pull you down. Kids Ministry isn't for wimps... let Pastor Karl share some secrets to survival in children's ministry.

One of the basic responsibilities of a children's ministry leader or teacher is to equip children to use their Bibles.

Kidmin Talk #080 - October 30th, 2015
What can Kidmin's learn from the Saga of Star Wars? Surprisingly, because of it's massive success, Star Wars almost didn't happen. George Lucas stuck to a vision he had, despite incredible odds, and prevailed. The rest is history. What is the lesson for us who lead kids ministires?

YOU Are a Bible Character!

Show Your TEACHING Through Your BEING!

Did you know that YOU are a Bible character? It’s true! Consider this. DiscipleTown Unit 21 contains a lesson with the theme “Pray and Obey.” I want to share with you from the “Connect with Your Kids” element, because I think the information is relevant to your lesson every week, no matter what you may be teaching on Sunday. The lesson is all about sharing your story with your students when you have done yourself what you are asking them to do. It’s all about BEING what you are TEACHINGThat makes YOU a “Bible Character.”

It is one thing to tell kids they need to pray and obey. It is entirely another to give them a real world example from someone they know who has done it. Prayerfully reflect on a time in your life when you have needed to “pray and obey,” and then God gave you the power to do the right thing. Share your story. It can have a powerful impact on your students. Don’t underestimate the power of your story on your students.

We often tell Bible stories and forget that these Bible “characters” were just ordinary people like us. They didn’t know their stories would end up in the Bible. They just made choices like you and I have. So, in a sense, your story is as much a Bible story as Joseph or Esther or Ruth or Daniel. And your story will mean as much to your students as those in the Bible. Perhaps more... because your kids actually know you!
