About Ministry-To-Children

Ministry-to-Children.com is a free online resource for children’s ministry, founded by Tony Kummer in 2007. Download Bible-based materials specifically designed for pastors, churches, Sunday School teachers, homeschool parents, and Christian school teachers. Resources include children’s church lessons, craft activities, and coloring pages that provide Christian education to children. Help kids grow in character and experience the love of God through structured learning and creative activities.

My name is Tony Kummer. I started Ministry-To-Children in 2007 with one simple mission:

Help you tell kids about Jesus.

God blessed that vision through the years. Now, this little blog (with the clunky name) has become one of the most popular resources for children’s ministry online.

Here’s a little about me:

Tony Kummer - Ministry-To-Children.com
  • I graduated from Boyce Bible College (B.A., 2003) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A. in Christian Education, 2008).
  • I served as a full-time children’s pastor in a smaller church for ten years before following a call to mission work in Haiti.
  • When I returned to the USA, I worked as a school bus driver for 3 years before my youngest son was born.
  • I’ve written for some of the best Christian publishers, but my passion is helping fellow children’s ministers like you.
  • I’ve been building websites since 1994. My current projects include the following:
  • The Sunday School Store – Since 2020, we have partnered with The Sunday School Store to create a printable children’s church curriculum that’s affordable and flexible to meet the needs of small churches.

I know ministry can be lonely and feel like a struggle, but people like us keep serving because we know God loves these children!

I am truly honored by the trust church leaders have placed in our ministry. I love to hear ways to improve this website, so leave a comment on any page or email me directly: Tony@ministry-to-children.com

Why Trust Ministry-To-Children?


All our resources are reviewed for faithfulness to God’s Word,

Expert written

All our writers are experienced ministry leaders

Church tested

All our material was first used in local churches

You don’t have to do ministry alone. We are here to help, encourage, and celebrate what God is doing through your service.

Our website serves big and little churches from many denominations worldwide. Our readers include pastors, Sunday School teachers, homeschool parents, and Christian school teachers. We often hear from missionary families, too!

We have a “please copy” policy for all our content. We want churches, bloggers, homeschoolers, and everyone else to repurpose or share our materials freely. No need to ask – use it for God’s glory.

It all started a God-sized idea…

Children’s ministry should not be so hard! What if there was a place online to get help? What if that website was completely free? What if the whole thing was just about serving others?

That was the question in 2007 when Ministry-To-Children quietly made its debut. It was just Tony Kummer, working in a small church and sharing what he was learning with others. The posts started adding up, and website readers started telling their friends. He recruited more writers. The focus shifted to building a free resource that would solve ministry problems.

With God’s help, this dream kept getting bigger.

Readers from 200 different countries now frequent this website. Every week, more people find help for their ministry. We are one small part of how God works in the lives of millions of children.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is our “Statement of Faith”?

We want all children to know the love and salvation in Jesus Christ!

Each of our writers hold to a Bible-believing evangelical approach to the Christian Faith. Our team is from all different types of Bible-believing churches. The editorial policy verifies no content is at odds with the Baptist Faith & Message (2000). That said, we greatly respect our brothers & sisters of all Christian denominations. Therefore we avoid the debated points that separate believers – meaning we leave it up to your local churches to share their own views on the ordinances and government of the local church. We believe those matters are beyond the scope of our ministry. When you simply teach the Bible, those hot topics don’t usually come up in kids ministry!
