Connecting to Kids to God through Their Parents

Reblogged from kids.healthychurch.com. Original post can be found here.   We all want Sunday mornings to be enough for the kids in our church to connect with God. Unfortunately this is not true. But once we mention teaching kids about Jesus at home, many parents appear confused and lost. With […]


Kids and Teenagers Can Give to Missions Too – Part 1

Not once have I heard a pastor say, “We need to give less money to those sharing Jesus around the world”. That would sound utterly ridiculous. I don’t know of a single church that does not give money to support missionaries overseas yet I know many children’s and youth ministries that […]


When Fun Meets Summoning Demons

There is a new “game” of sorts that is going around in schools called, “Charlie, Charlie“. If you are unaware of what this game is it is in essence a modernized homemade version of a ouija board. On a piece of paper kids will write two “yes”s and two “no”s […]

The Stagnant Christian

There’s something deep inside me that wants to scream whenever I am talking to somebody who says to me that they only socialize with Christians and that their only friends are Christians. Some even take it as far as not talking to their family members because they aren’t Christians. The […]


Really Quick

Let me quickly say this, “It is really easy to rush through the important things”. Phew. Glad I got that out. That’s all I have to say…okay. On a serious note I do want to say that as children’s ministers and leaders we can often find ourselves saying something along […]


Anything and Everything

Being 21 years old I find myself running into roadblocks and assumptions placed upon me because of my age. It is easy to assume that anybody young and right out of college believes that they know anything and everything there is to know even outside of my field of study […]


Moving Forward

The time has come where my four years of training and preparation for ministry at Valley Forge Christian College is about to conclude. I am pleased to say that over these four years I have grown deeply in my relationship with God, my knowledge of theology, and much much more. […]
