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 …

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 …

Steve Jobs Created the iPad for Kidmin!

jobskidceck

Since everyone and their brother is jumping on the “what Steve Jobs would say” band wagon, I’m going to jump on too and suggest that Steve Jobs would be delighted that his invention of the iPad has just made kids safer at church! Now, I know he wasn’t a big fan of things religious, but I think even he would be pleased to know that because of KidCheck‘s new iPad App the following are true: Checking in kids securely at church is faster and easier! (and more relational) Parents can enroll their children with ease on their own iPads! Parents can instantly add or remove approved guardians with KidCheck acocunts right from their own iPads. Leaders can check if someone picking up a child is approved quickly and easily if they have a licensed iPad approved by the leadership. Medical information can be attained quickly and easily in an emergency by an approved leader instantly by scanning a child’s name tag using the camera on an iPad right from within the new KidCheck App! Parents can use an iPad at a station at church to check their children in or be greeted by a friendly staff member at church who …

Visiting Awana HQ for the Inside Scoop

awanagoofy2

As a grown-up clubber, frequent blogger about Awana, and as the man who introduced Sport Stacking to Awana Game Time and a children’s pastor who has seen the impact of this ministry – I am always looking for opportunities to drop into the Awana HQ in Streamwood, Illinois. I’ve been hearing some exciting news coming out of Awana – and noticed their brand new website, so after speaking at camp for a week in Wisconsin, I headed down to Awana to sit down with Michael Scarbrough, who is the Director of Children’s Ministry at Awana to get the inside scoop on the relaunch of Awana going on right now! LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE! I also snagged me an official Awana sport coat (off a freebie table) so that I can sport it at the next Awana Conference. I think this coat gives back-stage access or at least snacks in the employee room. Forget GQ magazine, I think I could be on the cover of AHQ magazine! Got a great Awana story? Have questions about the club? Want to share some feedback for Awana leadership? Visit the podcast discussion forum and let’s talk Awana!
