So Good!

As a new Children’s minister, this thought-provoking and inspiring podcast leaves me excited and encouraged about Kids Ministry every time I listen! Thank you, LifeWay for creating a quality podcast!

Great content

The Kids Ministry 101 podcast contains excellent content. I always find myself taking notes & brainstorming new ideas as a result of listening. I give it 4 stars only because it drives me nuts that sometimes 8 minutes of a 16 minute podcast is spent on inconsequential chitchat about breakfast cereal or some other random topic. However, like I stated, when they finally move to the topic, the content is great.
