Kidmin Talk #091 - November 30th, 2016
Karl Bastian is joined on this podcast by two expert communicators. Kidology Coach Barney Kinard and professional magician Johnny Mobley (aka Johnny Magic) were in town for the FCM Conference so Karl sat down with them and asked them to share some insights on how to engage an audience. PLUS, learn about an amazing new School of Magic kit and app from Johnny Magic!

Kidmin Talk #090 - November 23rd, 2016
God works through relationships. He is in the people building business not program development. God is not interested in building your ministry. He is passionately committed to building YOU and building others through you. This is the final keynote in the Awesome Series as we look at our Awesome Community in Kidmin.

Kidmin Talk #089 - November 17th, 2016
We have an Awesome Opportunity - given to us by God to make a real difference not only in our world, but for eternity. Only YOU can do what God has planned for you. We have this incredible opportunity to see God's Plan come to pass! Learn the secret to significance and seeing your life become everything that God planned for you, far in advance!

Kidmin Talk #088 - November 10th, 2016
We serve an Awesome God, and yet, we get overwhelmed and stressed by the challenges of ministry. The struggle is ironic, but real. Ironic, because we have the Almighty God of the universe behind us - and yet, we often focus on the obstacles. This podcast will encourage you and help you have a Jedi-like calm as you realize that your big problems are no problem to the God we serve!

Kidmin Talk #087 - November 1st, 2016
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! How do we make Christmas special for kids? This podcast features a BUNCH of ideas to make Christmas special in your children's ministry.
