Karl, I spent my whole day just sitting in front of my computer viewing your training videos - the Kids Church Cooking Show ones; using storytelling, puppets, balloons, magics, object lessons and also about "Evaluating your Ministry" telling about how you diagnose the health of your ministry. Honestly I could say that it was indeed a realization and a blessing spending time watching and hearing those words and insights from you. I was thinking of the ministry that God has entrusted to me, I work with children church for almost five years now and I realize that there are a lot of things that was missing. I decide to talk to God and early this morning when I woke up I prayed to God to really bring back that passion of ministering with the kids because I think sometimes it's just for the sake of work, because I was assigned to work with kids and the very main goal of making disciples has not been realized. Today I was determined to take time to spend time praying for children's ministry and that God will use me effectively. Thank you.
- Inspired, Mona

It is loaded with tips and secrets on planning, launching and running a successful children's church as well as addressing the issue of whether of not to have a kids church in the midst of a resurgence of emphasis on family ministry.

Part 2: Setting the Mood helps you create an atmosphere where kids can't help but learn. Develop your personal presence, get tips regarding discipline, and explore how to promote and launch your children's church service.

Part 3: Developing the Recipe notes that curriculum has its place, but should not be a crutch. After this unit, all you will ever need to teach children will be a Bible!

This unit includes an EXCLUSIVE INVENTION of Karl's that will help even the most uncreative person create amazing lessons out of thin air!

Part 6: The Kitchen Crew will help you develop the upper elementary children from your ministry into leaders. Learn what happens back in the kitchen when you put kids in charge, as well as how to engage parents and other adults to help in children's church.

Part 7: Menu Planning will equip you to develop a master strategy for making disciples of the children in your stewardship. Kids Church may be fun, but now it will be strategic as well. After all, a true Chef has a master plan for the spiritual health of the children in his or her care!
