Great Podcast: Children’s Ministry Talk

I’ve been listening Children’s Ministry Talk for some time now and really enjoy the podcast.  Hosted by Jason Rhode and Dick Gruber, it always provides down-to-earth practical advice.  I love the fact that they frequently takes calls from listeners, answer questions that have been emailed in and more.  It’s a great place to gather and share ideas.  The podcast is only about 20 minutes, and there’s usually a new one every week.  The short format makes it great to listen to on the way to work, while making dinner, or while taking a stroll around the block.   Jason and Dick seem like great guys and they frequently share their own experiences from Children’s Ministry as well as insight they’ve gained through friends and books.  If you’re looking for some ideas or training tips — be sure to check them out!

Here’s some recent podcasts:

Episode 45: Choosing Curriculum, Budgets, and Special Needs Kids

Episode 44: Having Difficult conversations, CM in the Trenches, Digital Footprints

Episode 43: Pastor’s Kids, Conflict with Senior Pastor

Episode 41: Music in Ministry, Separate-age visitors, Parade stuff, mid-week programs
