Fresh out. A new kids worship curriculum from Hillsong Kids. And it is FREE!
All you have to do is head to their page, sign up for their newsletter, and then you can download the videos and curriculum.
This nine week curriculum includes lessons for both elementary and preschool children. It has messages on video, music on video, and print curriculum to guide you.
This would be a great summer curriculum! And, as I mentioned, it is free!
I’ve got a free D6 Conference Ticket in Louisville for October 17-18. Want to go???
This is a $319 ticket and I’m giving it away!
What will you benefit from D6? If you believe in family ministry then the D6 Conference is one that you will not want to miss. Children’s ministry, youth ministry, and all areas of family ministry will be covered. A conference based around Deuteronomy chapter 6 that helps ministries encourage and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their home.
You will hear from great speakers such as James Dobson, Les & Leslie Parrott, Ed Stetzer, Josh Griffin, Russell Moore, Rob Rienow, and Tommy Sanders.
I will be there connecting with other leaders in family ministry. And I want to connect with you too!
Let me know why you’d like to be at D6 in the comments below. A winner will be chosen and notified by Friday of this week.
There is a new FREE web resource that will allow you to convert any format to any format. This a going to be a great ministry tech tool.
We use the Gospel Project for Kids on Sunday mornings. And we L-O-V-E it. One problem. We project our kids worship service using Proclaim, which is another great program. The issue we have is that Proclaim does not project pdf files, and the Gospel Project for Kids does not send jpg image files (only pdf). While I have been told from the Gospel Project editorial leadership that they will soon begin sending jpg images, it doesn’t help me a lot right now.
I have been using Zamzar to convert my files, but I have to go to email to get them and there is also a file limitation. A little more hassle than I want.
In comes CloudConvert. It converts over 140 different formats. Document, audio, video, presentation, ebook, and image format are completely covered. It is quick. It is easy. It is FREE.
You can download straight from the page, have a link sent to you, or even have the converted document sent directly to your Dropbox. Lots of helpful options!
Add CloudConvert to your list of free go-to tech resources for your ministry.
At least for today, you can pick up a free graphic design resource for children’s ministry in the IOS Apple store.

It will make design simple and make you look like you’ve taken a course in graphic design

A great way to enhance your children’s worship or children’s church is by using a projector and presentation software. You can show lyrics to praise and worship songs.
