No Book or Classroom Could Do What Coaching Did for Me


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 …

Avoiding a Train Wreck with Coaching


Another Kidology Coaching Thank You Letter has come in! If you have been considering Coaching, these thank you letters are a great way to learn more about how our coaching program changes both lives and ministries. Enjoy: Dear Karl,                                                   March 28, 2014 I began the Kidology Coaching Program in the fall of 2011. At the time, I was serving in a part-time shared children’s co-coordinator position in a church experiencing rapid growth. I had seen burnout in children’s ministry. I did not want this to happen to me. I knew I needed some direction from someone experienced in the area of children’s ministry. I believe there would have been a great chance for me to burnout, if it weren’t for the Kidology Coaching program. The Kidology Coaching Program has taught me lessons on how to accomplish more with less effort. I am planning ahead better and delegating more. I am now training my Intern and my leadership teams. With the challenges of a rapid growing ministry and my own personal challenges, I could have easily had a major train wreck, which was averted. The first step was to slow down the train and get …

The Idiot’s Cube


For those of you intimidated by the Rubix Cube, I have invented an entirely new cube puzzle that even YOU can solve! Inspired by my brother who saw my naked Rubix Cube and said on Facebook, “…looks like a cube I could solve,” I decided to create a cube for the non-geniuses of the world. Enjoy: If you don’t want to buy 6 Rubix Cubes to get all the matching stickers, you can buy stickers at

Kidology Coaching Saves CP from Trash Compactor!


It is always a delight to share with you the thank you notes I get from our Kidology Coaching graduates. (Always reprinted with permission – they desire others to know how the Kidology Coaching has changed there life.) This letter comes from Amy Hardeman, and it is our hope it will encourage those of you who may feel like the sides are closing in on them! Dear Karl, Thank you so much for establishing and investing in the Kidology Coaching program.  For several years I had been a silent snoop on the Kidology website.  A year or so after adopting a newborn from foster care, I will still feeling so overloaded with life and ministry and was having a hard time balancing it all.  Before a baby, I had somehow managed to do it all, relying heavily on myself.  One day when listening to a KidMin Talk podcast I started to consider the coaching program. When I first took the plunge and decided to sign up I was feeling a lot like Princess Leia and her Star Wars in the trash compactor scene. From event to event, ministry crisis to crisis, it always seemed like the walls were about to …

We have just added a woman to our coaching team, so for ladies who have been waiting for that, now is your chance! Dear Karl, Upon graduating from the Kidology Coaching Program, I want let you know that the Kidology Coaching Program has been a “life-saver” for me! Literally! The work that you and the coaches have put into the curriculum, the training you’ve had and all the components of this coaching program is exemplary. I want to tell you how this program has changed my life in hopes that someone else could relate and become a part of the program at a just the right time in their life. When I signed up for the coaching program I was at a “low” in my ministry. I had gone through the “honeymoon” stage of my ministry (where everyone was thrilled to have me there and helped me along with everything, because I was new and naïve) and was facing …
