Piggybacking off of Pudge’s Post

Sorry for the ridiculous alliteration there but first read this post by Pudge. Then think about this. Number one what is our goal in #kidmin or any ministry for that matter.

My goal as a teacher is 1 Timothy 1:5 “But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.” [NASB]

  1. So basically, I want to teach kids to love purely out of a result of their overflowing relationship with God
  2. Sound doctrine or (a good conscience)that comes directly from their personal relationship with God and reading and study of the word of God. Very interesting to do a study on the word conscience in this passage check it out;)
  3. And last sincere faith (deeds, works, acts of service, etc.)

Now with these goals in mind we have been pondering how do we push kids to their Bibles? How do we push them closer to Christ? Are there hurdles that we can remove in order for kids to get in the Bible?

We have pondered so many things:

  • Graphic Bibles
  • Sorta a baseball/Yu-Gi-oH (culturally relevant)card to get kids to read passages
  • Bible Hero Action Figures
  • Videos
  • Online readers

I am wondering if the thing Pudge is talking about is doable. Hulu is an incredible tool but more so imagine how much kids are on the computer. Webkins, Dragonball Z reruns, Webisodes, etc.

How can we put something tangible together that will grab kids attention and get them to come back again and again? Can it be done? Should it be done? Is there another way to do something like this?

Let me hear your thoughts.
