This week I want to honor another kids ministry blogger as the “Kids Ministry Champion of the Week.” Thanks for all the feedback after last week. Each Tuesday I will select a new champion and feature their blog feed in our sidebar.
Karl Bastian is a Kids Ministry Champion because of his massive resource website called Kidology. He has served for 15+ years in church ministry, plus he is a frequent speaker at conferences about children’s ministry. To top it all, he’s written a novel for kids titled The Order of the Ancient.
I first came across Karl when I was new to children’s ministry. It was my first week at my church and I found Kidology bookmarked on the office computer. A few hours later I had printed off a dozen articles and was well on my way. I kept coming back to his website for practical resources and the amazing forum support.
I think his personal mission statement sums it up:
Karl’s Mission Statement: To Reach and Teach as many children as possible with the Good News of God’s Love, and in the process to Enlist, Equip and Encourage others to do the same.
When our website started growing, Karl contacted me several times to offer his support and encouragement. He is clearly committed to helping others fulfill their calling to reach kids too. He is a gracious, humble, and passionate follower of Christ. So, check out his personal blog, his main website, and follow him on Twitter.
Thank you Karl for being an advocate of Kids Ministry.
