Topic: Theorems, Ministry Tips and Techniques

Apply these theorems to your kids ministry, experiment with them, tweak them in your own laboratory, and watch as success bubbles up like you’ve never seen before.

I started in children’s ministry at the age of ten after a Calling when a children’s evangelist came to our church. I told my mom, “That’s what I want to do when I grow up!” My mom’s answer? “What’s growing up got to do with anything? You can start this week!” She coached me through my first mini-lesson and had me in front of kids doing an object lesson… and I’ve been teaching kids ever since! There were no “Kids Pastors” when I started in kids ministry. There were no children’s ministry conferences or degrees, and books were limited and more focused on general Christian Education. But I dove in and started to learn. 

When the Internet appeared, I started sharing what I was learning on the first kids ministry website, known then as “The KidologyWeb.” This new book contains what I call “Kidology Theorems” – proven principles of kids ministry that I have learned over the years in the weekly laboratory of ministry to children. I share with you the tips and techniques I have learned over the years that aren’t always obvious. I’ve been a collector of pithy statements of wisdom and wit since childhood and love trying to reduce lessons learned into statements that are memorable so I don’t forget the things that I have learned along the way.
