Happy Birthday Kidology.org

kid-20years_md

Happy 20th Birthday Kidology! It’s incredible to even think about, but before… and even The Internet gave birth to a site dedicated to EQUIPPING and ENCOURAGING Those Who Minister to Children It’s been an incredible 20 years, and while the Internet has exploded with new helps for those who minister to children, Kidology.org has remained the leader in content and services for those who minister to kids. Back in 1994 when very few people knew what the “Internet” was, I got an idea for a website, The KidologyWeb: I was already calling myself “The Kidologist” in my workshops as I sought to equip and encourage children’s workers to approach children’s ministry from the perspective of a child: By 1996 the first “Kidology Handbook” was published: VERY FEW people remember when Kidology.org (before I had that domain!) looked like this: OR when you clicked into it and saw crude pages like this: Only hundreds were lucky enough to BE on the Internet surfin’ kidmin back then! (And only a few bought the “Life Time Membership” I offered back then when I needed to raise some money to buy some much needed Microsoft FrontPage software…and yes, they are still members!) More remember …

Yosemite Summit Report and Video

YS14-report26

ALSO available on YosemiteSummit.org Yosemite Summit 2014 Report One of the best decisions I ever made in life was to start Yosemite Summit. I can still remember how nervous I was the first year – it was an incredible step of faith to put money down on a lodge not knowing if any guys would even sign up. I’ve now completed seven Summits. Each year God brings together a completely different group of men – sovereignly gathered by God for a week of unplugging from the busyness of ministry to reconnect with God in an incredible way. What are the benefits of Yosemite Summit that these men benefit from? Let me share a few with you… (click on any image to view larger) They get to spend time strengthening their foundation by spending quality time with the Rock. They gain a new objectivity on their life and walk with God. They learn to see God in nature in new and creative ways. They learn to enjoy the journey over the destination. They gain a heightened perspective on life. (Can you see him there?) They learn that even when you can’t see God at work… He is still there. Sometimes it’s …

Karlos es el Fundador de Kidology.org

SPANISH_karl

Did you know I have the privilege of writing for a Spanish Children’s Ministry magazine? it is called Entre Ninos and it’s a wonderful ministry for the Spanish speaking segment of the Kingdom that ministers to children. There are often discussions on Kidology lamenting that there aren’t more resources for this demografic, and I’m always pleased to tell them about the Kidology Handbook that I have available for free in Spanish as well as Entre ninos that is loaded with Spanish resources. Often English speaking folks (like us) are just not aware of all that is available. I’m pleased to be contribting (freely) to this incredible resource and hope you will help spread the word! To read my current article, download the current issue free at www.entreninos.com – but here is a previous article you can download as well.  

No Book or Classroom Could Do What Coaching Did for Me

Joan_with_Kidology_certificate_sq

Here is yet another Kidology Coaching Testimony. We are so honored by the difference that Kidology Coaching makes in the lives and ministries of those who take that courageous step to ask for help. While there are many coaching options available today in children’s ministry, we believe there are none like the one on one personalized coaching you get from Kidology’s professionally trained coaches who combine an exclusive curriculum, weekly Skype calls and skillful guidance to help children’s ministries leader’s realize their goals. Read this testimony and consider if you may want to take the same brace step that Joan did: Dear Karl, In November of 2011, I reached a point of desperation in our church’s children’s ministry. We held an outreach party and at 2 PM, the start time of the party, we had 2 children. We had never had a children’s event with less than 30 children. Our children’s ministry was floundering and it had been my vision to build it up through hosting outreach events. By the end of the party a grand total of 18 children had trickled in. I knew, then and there, that if the children’s ministry was ever to come back, I needed …
