10 Free Resources Every KidMin Pastor Ought to Know

#6: BIBLE CRAFT CLUB

Bible Craft Club is a husband and wife team bringing the Bible to a child’s level through their unique design and artwork that engage little hands and fill little hearts with God’s living Word. I recommend this resource to all the parents in my church, encouraging them to incorporate these crafts into their family devotions.

Their crafts are easy to download, print and assemble. This summer my wife and oldest son (3 y.o.) put together all of their crafts based on the life of Jesus. They sat on our dresser for many weeks afterwards and my boy would often reach for one of his creations to play with it.

These crafts give parents a great way to spend time with their children and they naturally spark curiosity and questions, which lead to faith forming conversations.

Go HERE and see how fun it can be for the parents in your church to work with their children building paper creations and most importantly, building faith.

#7 EXPLAINED.TV

The team at explainED.tv creates media inspired by the wisdom, passion and expertise within the Body of Christ in order to engage, equip and inspire people all over the world. They find the experts and then create media resources around their content.

Head over HERE to watch 29 video talks from the 4/14 conferences, 279 expert interviews and 28 animations to reignite your passion and readjust your vision for reaching the next generation with the love of Jesus.

Consider featuring some of these videos on your children’s ministry’s Facebook page or showing them at your next training event. Here are just a few titles to whet your appetite:

  • Children in Revival Throughout History

#8: LIFEKIDS

LifeKids is the children’s ministry of Life.Church (yes, the one that brought us the beloved Bible App). They create fun, age-appropriate videos, Christ centered activities, small group connections and family resources to partner with parents to lead children to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

I primarily love their animated videos which I download directly from their YouTube channel HERE. However their short animations are only a small portion of all they offer. For free curriculum to accompany their videos, as well as complete, downloadable message videos, graphics, promotional and marketing materials, and church leadership tools, visit: http://open.church

After you register a free account, you’ll get unlimited access to 35,000 sermons, transcripts, kids’ lessons, worship songs, art and graphics, and the entire two-year Bible App for Kids Curriculum package.
