God has been speaking to me about some new dreams and goals this year (cue The Greatest Showman soundtrack). As a result, these new things are shifting my life and ministry into a new chapter, and I wanted to share it with all of you. Almost two years ago, God put a new dream in my heart. I felt like I was being led towards writing my own curriculum. The funny thing is, I had just told Lauren, my assistant at the time, that I would NEVER write my own curriculum. Never say never to God! I was a little scared, overwhelmed, not sure where to start, or how long I would be doing it. However, I jumped right in because I’ve learned you should never go against God’s plan.
Fast forward to the beginning of this year. I felt God placing another new dream in my heart. While I had been writing curriculum series for the last year and a half, I felt that God was shifting my ministry focus to spend more time on writing kid’s ministry curriculum/resources and to take on more opportunities to speak and pour into others. I wasn’t sure what this looked like or what the timetable would be. God had only shared a piece of that dream with me at the time. I have been praying daily for this new dream that God placed on my heart so I could receive more clarity on what this looks like for my ministry.
Last month, I had the opportunity to publish a curriculum series with Ryan Frank on kidzmatter.com. I enjoyed partnering with him on this project, and am excited to work with Ryan again at Kidmin Mega-con and as a faculty member for Kidmin Academy. Through working on the project of releasing the Time To Glow curriculum with KidzMatter I realized that God was nudging me to start publishing and releasing curriculum on kidmincorinne.com.
The first two series are available right now. Check them out here.
I am excited to be partnering with Jeff at JumpStart3! Each curriculum series will include a JumpStart3 audio/video bundle to use as an additional resource for helping your kids learn the series verse. The audio/video bundle will include 4 videos. A hand motion tutorial, a hand motion demonstration, a full mix lyric video, and performance track lyric video (no vocals). You will also receive the full mix and performance track audio files for the verse song.
Discovery is an 8-week series where kids will learn how the Old and New Testaments are connected and support each other each week. They will be encouraged to dig deeper into God’s Word! During small groups, kids will go on a Footnotes Treasure Hunt where they will learn how to use footnotes and will see many verses in the New Testament are quoted verses from the Old Testament. Check out more info, or buy it now here.
Star Warriors is an 8-week series where kids will learn about a new Star Warrior from the Bible each week. Each of the Star Warriors had to trust God to help them accomplish amazing missions for him. Star Warriors include Nehemiah, Deborah, Elijah, Elisha, Jael, King Josiah, and Gideon. Check out more info, or buy it now here.
If you love my curriculum series, but you are from a small church with little or no budget for curriculum, we still want to be able to be a resource for you and your ministry. Fill out this form and we will find a way to make it affordable for you.
I have been so blessed and privileged to have the opportunity to share an entire year’s worth of free curriculum with all of you. You can still access my classic curriculum series as well as a full VBS curriculum here absolutely free. I will continue to post about set designs, events, and other helpful kidmin ideas.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me in my ministry journey. I am excited to turn the page and start this new chapter.
