Earlier this summer on Dad in the Middle, I reviewed a series of CDs from God’s Kids Worship and gave away a set of the CDs to one lucky reader (GOD’S KIDS WORSHIP MODERN CD 3-PACK (A Dad in the Middle Review). Since that time, I have had a chance to meet Bob Singleton (founder and president of God’s Kids Worship® at the CM Expo, and I am grateful that God’s Kids Worship® became the very first sponsor of Dad in the Middle. In order to celebrate, I am giving away a set of DVDs from God’s Kids Worship this week – but more on that later. First I want to tell you a little bit about the DVDs. These DVDs contain 14 songs each and feature the music of God’s Kids Worship. I wrote extensively about the music itself in my last review of the modern worship CDs, so I won’t reiterate all that here, but as I explained in my last review:
The songs are engaging and fun to listen to and make for a great worship experience. They are also perfect for parents to listen to with their kids in the car or at home as both are sure to enjoy the music.
What I do want to tell you about is some of the awesome features included on the DVDs themselves. For this review, I watch the 3 DVDs which are part of the June/July/August Modern Worship Summer DVD set. Down to the packaging, which is pretty cool, the attention to detail on these DVDs is amazing. Everything is designed to help you use the DVD’s in your children’s worship services as easily and effectively as possible. Each DVD loads quickly as there are no FBI Warnings or company logos to wait through in order to get to the music you need. This might not seem like a big deal until you are standing in front of 30 5 & 6 year olds waiting for you to get the DVD player working. The songs can be selected individually, or you can choose from one of four ready-to-go worship sets (containing four songs each) on each DVD.
Even the DVD menus themselves are also designed to help you as much as possible. They are easy to read with the name of each song and an indication of the tempo of each song. The videos consist of a variety of moving backgrounds along with the lyrics of the songs. The videos include large, easy to read, lyrics which work both on large and small screens. The music, and the videos, are energetic and geared specifically to kids including a variety of well know songs along with a number of original songs from the award winning team at God’s Kids Worship®. In addition to the songs and videos, the DVDs contain two countdown clocks which count down from five minutes to mark the start of your service. Each DVD contains a more upbeat “fun” countdown and a more subdued countdown depending on your tastes. Finally, the DVDs contain wallpaper screens you can use during your lesson and prayer time.
Bob Singleton, and the team at God’s Kids Worship® have put together a top notch product in these DVDs with attention to every conceivable detail. These DVDs will be a great addition to your children’s ministry or for your family to enjoy, and here is the great news – God’s Kids Worship® has been gracious enough to give me a set of the three Summer Modern Worship DVDs to give away to one lucky reader. Here’s how you can win:
