It’s been the plan since the Kidology website began in 1994 – to provide training for children’s ministry leaders 24/7 anywhere there was access to a computer. We’ve provided training through the thousands of posts in the Zones on the site, conferences like Kid U, Kidology To Go and now Yosemite Summit, and the interactive forum – but now Kidology’s dream is coming true to take training to a whole new level: ONLINE TRAINING that not only trains leaders, but equips them to train others. It is finally here!
People used to ask me how I did so much… two full time ministries, writing, speaking, performing, family, etc. Well, for starters… for much of my ministry I was doing too much!! And I was last guy to recognize it… after all, I would say, can you ever be doing too much for God!? (Um, yes!) In the last year, I have learned some life-changing lessons in how to live a healthier, slower paced, balanced life. Family is finally genuinely first. (I say genuinely first because I would have always claimed it was first!) That is why the very first Kidology Online Training Leadership Lab is titled First Things First. If you life and/or ministry is running out of control (even if only you know that) please make some time to view that online video – it’s free to members of Kidology.org
There is also a Download Kit available that includes the video of the training, the 100th TBT, (made for CPs not kids!), plus a customizable PowerPoint so leaders can train their volunteers through the First Things First lessons, and the first installment of the NEW Kidology Handbook – Leader’s Edition – six chapters addressing First Things First. The download kit is $29.99 but SAVE $20 if you use discount code: LL1BLOG (expired 11-30-07)
I pray that many children’s pastors and leaders will find these Leadership Labs helpful and that especially this first one will challenge many to take a hard look at their life and ministry so they can make some positive proactive changes to make their life and ministry healthier.
Spread the word – Kidology Online Training has arrived!
