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 …

When You Shop Kidology You Impact the World

Denisekids1

Often people are surprised to learn that Kidology.org is a non-profit organization. Many of our newer customers don’t realize we are in our 20th year of ministry and were one of the first children’s ministry websites on the Internet, and were the first membership site on the Internet. Before ebay, Paypal, Amazon, YouTube and even Google, Kidology was already equipping and encouraging those who minister to children. While we are supported by subscriptions to our website and sales in our online store (the first kidmin store to accept credit cards) we still give away free memberships almost daily and give away resources all over the world constantly. In fact, when you join Kidology.org and shop in our store, you are helping Kidology fulfill our MISSION of Equipping and Encouraging children’s workers globally. There are now a lot of sites for children’s ministry and new places to buy stuff pop up all the time, but when you shop on Kidology, you are helping a non-profit make a real difference in kids ministries globally. Just this month we offered a fun contest on our Facebook Wall for folks to “like” our Kidology Page and share it for a chance at winning $300 …

No More “Tannerization” at Kidology

Steve Tanner and Karl Bastian

After over ten years as the self-described “Swiss Army Knife” of Kidology, Steve Tanner has accepted a new challenge and will be moving on from our ministry. What is “Tannerization?” Whenever something has passed through Steve’s hands, we have long called it “Tannerized” to describe the quality control and excellence that Steve has brought to our team. While we are sad to see him go – we celebrate all that he has brought to this ministry, and are excited for what God has for him next. Steve will remain a friend of everyone at Kidology! What will the future hold for Kidology in a post-Steve era? Only God knows! But while we scramble a bit to re-organize and search for what’s next, interview potential new staff and make sure everything is up and running before he leaves… we are reflecting on how thankful we are for God bringing Steve to Kidology and what a great job he did! There was never a dull moment with Steve around – his knowledge of all things technical, Disney, Marvel, and just about everything else made working with him always interesting and entertaining. If you really want to know all he did, you might …
