The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol (March 2010)

Childrens Ministry Blog Patrol

Welcome to The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol. Every month we gather links from around the blogging world related to Children’s Ministry and issues important to those who work in Children’s Ministry. As always, there were a lot of great articles published this month in the world of Children’s Ministry. I hope you will take a few moments to check them out.

To help identify what I view as the best, or most important, articles of the past month, I’ve added this little graphic next to titles of particularly pertinent posts. I think they’re all must-reads, but if you’re running short on time, you should make sure that you check out these articles at a minimum!

We’re Out, But the Tournament Marches On

It’s official.  As of last Thursday, Dad in the Middle is officially out of the Kidmin Blog Madness competition, and that is no April Fool’s joke! We squeaked through in Round 1, but the stiff competition in Round 2 just turned out to be too much for this little blog. While we actually garnered more votes in round two than round one, and even almost snuck into second place, we ultimately succumbed to the great final round are part of the cream of the crop of children’s ministry blogs.

The four blogs that made the final are frequently featured in the The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol. I am in the final stages of putting together March’s installment of the Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol, and I thought in honor of these four blogs I would feature some of my favorite posts from each blog over the course of the last month. If you are not familiar with these blogs, you should be! Perhaps these posts will help you make your decision, then go ahead on over to Kidmin Blog Madness and cast your vote!

Kidmin Blog Madness – We Made It to Round 2 – Now Go Vote!

We did it! Dad in the Middle actually made it through the first round of Kidmin Blog Madness.  Coming out of the Eastern Division as a fifth seed, we squeaked by into the second round with fewer votes than anybody else who progressed past the first round.  Only the top vote getter in each division will move on to the next round.  The competition is stiff, and if I’m being realistic, I don’t see any way Dad in the Middle can make it to final round – which is not to discourage you for voting!  Go HERE now and vote Dad in the Middle.  A win in this round would be akin to Northern Iowa taking out Kansas.

Instead of stumping for votes this week, I thought a better use of this space would be to highlight the other fifteen blogs that made the second round.  I am familiar with all of them as every single one has been featured in the Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol.  A number of them were also featured in:

·        Next Ten Children’s Ministry Blogs (#11-20)

The Children's Ministry Blog Patrol (December 2009)

Childrens Ministry Blog Patrol

The NEW AND IMPROVED Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol seems to have been a success. I hope that you will find this month’s equally as useful. There are a lot of people out there dedicated to Children and Children’s Ministry publishing great and useful stuff on the internet. This is my attempt to try to compile some of the best of that information into one place for your perusal. As you might suspect, there were a lot, and I mean A LOT, of articles about Christmas this past month. I tried to limit the number in the Blog Patrol (seeing as how you won’t read it until January), but there were a couple I could not resist including.

I’ve decided I like the “must read” feature, so I am going to stick with it for now. As I’ve said before, I think they’re all must-reads, but for the best-of-the best, I’ve added this little graphic to the right of the title. If you’re running low on time, make sure that you check out these articles at a minimum!
