The children’s ministry at Village Baptist Church needed an overhaul and Ruth, a children’s leader, suggested they use KIDStory as their adults were using this method in their small groups. Since switching to KIDStory things have radically changed. They have more leaders in their classrooms than ever before. Of the 35 people, 14 have Master’s degrees and 2 have M.Divs. The leaders are ecstatic over the children’s responses and some are coming up to the children’s director and sharing what new things God is showing them in the stories. One 9-year-old was visiting the church one Sunday where she experienced the KIDStory method. She went home and shared all the things she had learned and had been revealed to her through the Bible story taught that day. Her parents were amazed and said, “If my child is learning this much about God at this church, we are going there!”
Ruth also shared, “I have never seen so much excitement about Children’s Ministry at our church before.” And she has been around for a very long time!
