The Epic Story of Your Life

I had the honor preaching in “Big Church” for the final Sunday of 2020, and brought a rather unusual message. I’m not sure Star Wars, Die Hard, Stranger Things, Nemo and Kung Fu Panda have ever all been in a sermon together until now. But I do hope it will both challenge and encourage you. I’ve long been a student of Story and dove into the Elements of Story and why the Gospel can’t help but make an appearance even in stories written by people who do not know or follow the God of the Bible.

Host an Easter EGGstravaganza!

Folks have asked me to describe the Family Show we do before our Easter Egg Hunts, so I’m providing some files and a video walk through to help describe what you we do. The EGGstravaganza Show is a high-energy interactive game show experience that will involve both selected volunteers from the audience, as well as full audience participation elements. The theme is “That’s Impossible” as participants attempt to do impossible feats! At the end, they will learn that the Bible says (twice), “…with man this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible!” They will learn that Easter is about the Ultimate Impossible Feat: Jesus, who raised Himself from the dead! We all face challenges in life – you may be facing something right now that seems impossible – but with God, the impossible can happen! THAT is the true meaning of Easter – we have a risen Savior who can do the IMPOSSIBLE: save us from our sins and help us be victorious in life! Pre-Show walk through: Post-Event highlight video: The games I either bought on Amazon.com, have owned for years or found the items around the church. The key is big and fun. The TP Bazooka…

Breakthrough Movie Triumphs!

My family and I got to watch an early release of this film in our home recently and were riveted to the screen. Breakthrough grabs your heart and never lets go! All of the characters are so relatable and real. Their faith is called up and challenged as relationships are strained and strengthened. Of course, you are rooting for the recovery of the boy at the center of the saga, but he isn’t the only one who experiences a miracle – a breakthrough – in this incredible true story. I can’t recommend highly enough that your entire family go see this film when it comes out! – Karl Bastian, Kidology.org Coming to theaters this Easter, BREAKTHROUGH is an impossible true story that will inspire everyone who sees it. Chrissy Metz plays the real-life mom in the story and DeVon Franklin (Miracles From Heaven and The Star) is the producer.

Kids Ministry Over the Top!

Sunday morning a guest said to me, “We came for the Kidz Blitz show and decided we had to come check out Sunday!” That’s the power of bringing in an over-the-top FUN family event and providing it as a gift to your community! Image your main auditorium filled with cheering kids, smiling parents, fun music and flying tee-pee paper! As soon as people enter the room they know they are in for a super evening! Not only was it a great program, but it was a super easy event to plan! Roger and his team made it easy and it took only a few volunteers to pull it off!I consider Roger Fields the inventor of the over-the-top insanely fun family outreach event! He has several crews around the country making his high-octane high-energy highly effective show available for your church! Bring in kids and families, and share the crazy, amazing love of God like you never have before! I got “POOFED” as part of the show! I was framed! In a game where kids are shaving a water balloon on their dad’s head – I was told to pop the balloon at the end of the games, along with my…

Securing the Perfect Performer for Your Church Event

GUEST BLOGGER: Josh Denhart, from The Amazing Chemistry Show Most churches with Children’s Ministries will sooner or later decide to hold an outreach event for those in their church and community. Most likely they will be looking to bring in someone who will not only entertain their kids, but also, hopefully, clearly present the Gospel message. What do you need to prioritize for your event? Events can draw a crowd! However, the right event can draw a crowd that would normally not attend a traditional event with bounce houses, carnival games, and popcorn.  While it’s fun to see your children bouncing on a bounce house, parents are left as spectators, not participants.  But Science bridges the gap for people of all ages. Live Science Events allow for everyone to be engaged and entertained. Science intrigues people. In addition, there is nothing quite like giant balls of fire, amazing explosions, and emanating foam! If you’re looking to engage and amaze your audience, while still clearly sharing the Gospel message, then you need to have the right combination of performance and presentation. Listen, I have been the pastor who brought in national children’s ministry performers.  I had some good results and some…
