Do As I Say, Not As I Do

Kidology Theorem #26 Several years ago I was serving at a major children’s ministry conference, and as a speaker/exhibitor, I had the opportunity to give out some drawing slips for some really cool prizes the conference was giving away to its attendees. We could give them out any way we wanted, but were encouraged to make it fun. Oh, the things kids pastors would do to get these drawing slips! One fellow came back to our booth seeking another drawing slip and since he had already played our silly game, I decided to go easy on him. He was wearing a t-shirt with a Bible verse on it, so I said, “Close your eyes and tell me the verse on your shirt.” He admitted he had just bought the shirt so he didn’t know the verse.

The Secret to Discipling Kids!

In a media saturated world, where kids are juggling content as much as adults, and where kids often don’t live in the same place for their entire childhood, how do you make sure YOUR kids know the basics of the Christian Faith? The “secret” isn’t really a secret, it is just not done intentionally often enough – The secret is simply discipleship. Jesus discipled. And when He left, he commanded us to disciple other, teaching them “everything He commanded” in addition to sharing the Gospel and baptizing. What is Discipleship? It is an intentional process of guiding another person through the basics of the Christian Faith. Introducing MY AWESOME ADVENTURE!
