Kid·ol·o·gy: n. 1. the study of kids and their world.
To be an effective minister to today's children, one must learn to do it from within the context of their culture. A working knowledge of a kid's world is an inroad to their heart. When children see that you are genuinely interested in their world, they in turn will become interested in what you are interested in – namely God's Word and the Good News of Jesus. Learn how to relate to kids and keep up with their ever changing culture.
AIM OF THIS WORKSHOP is to challenge and equip adults to engage in relational ministry through a working knowledge of the culture of kids.
What is KIDOLOGY anyway?
A. Definition of Kidology: the study of kids (how they think, relate, communicate and learn) and their world.
B. Think of Childrens Workers as cross cultural ministers.
