New Free Kids Bible App from YouVersion

Released today, on Thanksgiving, is a brand new Bible App just for kids.

1. Quality – Youversion is not going to release a program sub-par. Expect supreme quality.

2. Performance – Youversion’s adult Bible app runs smooth. We can assume this kid’s Bible app will run similarly.

3. Fun. My five year old cannot put it down. He loves it! The story is well read. They illustrations are fantastic. There is a lot to interact with in each scene and achievements can be made to reward the child.

4. Great Price. Free. Not going to get better than that.

You can download the app on IOS or Android today. Get it and get your family plugged into reading the BIble!

Free D6 Conference Ticket

D6 Conference

 

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.

 

 

Where have you been?

Summer hiatus? Yes. Other life situations? Yes.

As you know summer picks up dramatically for most of us in children’s ministry. Camp, VBS, weekly events, and family time all crammed into two short little months.

Add my wife getting pneumonia, an unexpected surgery (that I found out I was going to need while I was at kids camp), and the death of a family member. I’m back in the game now.

Some things to look forward to in upcoming blogs:

-special needs resources

-introduction of a new Georgia Baptist state children’s ministry leader

-fall kid’s ministry conferences

-new resources

 

Stay tuned to the Children’s Ministry Network, and help us keep the kidmin conversations alive!
