$20 for 20 Days!

Every once in a while a deal comes along that is just TOO GOOD to pass up!

The Kidology Handbook has been called by many "their blueprint for children's ministry" and the Kid's Church Cookbook is the most complete training resource for those who teach children's church ever created!

Normally these massive training manuals (and the seven training videos included in the cookbook) cost well over $100 together depending on your membership level on Kidology.org

handcookbook-bundleBut for the NEXT 20 DAYS you can get The Kidology Handbook for only $20! (Retail $49) and while you are at it, you can add The Kid's Church Cookbook for 50% off the members only price (even if you aren't!) for only $35. Getting these tools may just be the best investment you make in yourself and your volunteers.

Use them to sharpen yourself, or to lead training sessions in your church.

Thousands have been sold and I often meet people to are so eager to tell me the difference these books have made in their ministry.

They are fun to read, extremely practical and loaded with tips and tricks from a veteran children's pastor and trainer who "gives away his secrets" in these volumes. (Yup, I hold nothing back!) It's all to Equip and Encourage YOU in your ministry to children.

ORDER WHILE THE DEAL IS STILL GOING ON!
