I absolutely love your insight, and I making sure to share it with all of my KidMin Fam!!!
Solid usable information, well produced
So glad you’re coming back!
This is my go-to podcast for kids min. We are a medium sized Ministry, and I feel so often lost in the shuffle of most kids Ministry materials- they often are marketed to churches much larger than ours. Thank you for your sound insight and wisdom!
