Helping Students Recover Christmas. . . – Youth Ministry Christian Article

A few years ago, I came to a sad realization about myself: the amazing story of Christmas had become so familiar to me that it was almost as if it didn’t matter much anymore. No, I hadn’t lost my love for God and the Son He sent to redeem the world. But I had lost the sense of wonder and awe that I knew I should have had. It was disturbing. My guess is that you and your kids might…

Ten Traits of Children’s Ministry Leaders Who Run a Good Race for God – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Dick Crider, DiscipleLand Field Trainer, shares his wisdom: In more than thirty years of ministry, I have known children’s ministry leaders who crash and burn after a few years and I’ve known those who run the race for 30, 40, and even 50 years. What distinguishes those who run for a lifetime from those who do not? Paul told Timothy that he had fought the fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. So, what motivates those who do all…

The Tribulation Period is ALL God’s Wrath! – End Times Christian Article

Commentary By:  Gordon King I’ve heard many believers tell me that the church will go through the first half (3.5 years) of the Tribulation period, that it won’t be such a bad time.  Oh really?!!!  I wonder what book they’ve been reading from because that’s certainly not what I read in the bible!  According to scripture the first 3.5 years will be Hell on earth!

GUEST POST: Ladies (and Gents), Know Your Value – Youth Ministry Christian Article

I was recently asked to participate in a podcast for youth ministry leaders with decades of experience.  While a wasn’t quite at 20 years, I was encouraged to participate anyway. From my perspective, professional youth ministry is dominated by white guys.  And, even if that isn’t quite true IRL, the face of youth ministry is often white and male.  So, too, was the panel participating in the podcast.  It looked to me like longevity in youth ministry was also dominated…

The Real History of the Pilgrims – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

 Thanksgiving is coming soon, and most children’s pastors have special Thanksgiving services planned. One thing I have always done on Thanksgiving is to teach the children about America’s spiritual heritage ingrained in the Pilgrims and Puritans. These are some of the facts that children are not taught in school. Most children are taught that pilgrims came to America to flee religious persecution. That’s not exactly true. Pilgrims and Puritans were persecuted for believing that Christians could have a personal relationship with…
