Counting Our Blessings!

Our team at Key Ministry (and me personally) have lots to be thankful for in 2011!

Inclusion Fusion…Suggestions for Our “Kidmin” Friends

One of the goals of our team at Key Ministry when we put together Inclusion Fusion in partnership with Jeremy Collins (a children’s pastor) and his team at Pajama Conference was to establish a community where pastors, children’s and youth ministry leaders, disability ministry leaders and families could connect to share ideas in order to help more churches connect with more families of kids and adults with special needs.

The interest in the conference was so great on our first day that the media team had to replace their servers to manage the volume of internet traffic!

As the Chairman of the Inclusion Fusion Program Committee, I wanted to invite our friends and colleagues in Kidmin to be part of the conference. Now that we’ve extended the conference through Monday, November 7 (due to connection issues caused by the internet traffic), I thought I’d help our friends in children’s ministry identify some presentations of interest.
