The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol (December 2010)

Childrens Ministry Blog Patrol

Welcome back 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 and organize into one easy to use document. A friend once described it as “The Table of Contents of the Children’s Ministry Blogs.” I like that.

There were a lot of Christmas articles this past month. Though many of them were really really good, I did not include most of them in this Blog Patrol as the holiday has already passed. 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.

Top 10 in 2010–Best Articles from The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol

2011 New YearEach month here on Dad in the Middle, I publish a monthly compilation of the best of the best in children’s ministry blog articles from the preceding month.  It is known as the The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol, and it seemed appropriate to pick my ten favorite articles/series from those compilations for the prior year.  One caveat, I tried not to pick more than one article/series from each author, and it was tough!

1. Andy Johnson did a series on children and the gospel message. If you teach children, you should read through these articles carefully!

Orange Week 2.0 – Day #1 Recap

Orange Week Recap Day 1 I am excited to announce the start of Orange Week 2010. Early this year, a handful of bloggers started Orange Week to more fully investigate the Orange Strategy. Starting yesterday, they decided to do it again – this time focusing on the more practical aspects of Orange. I was invited to participate and opted to do so through Kidmin1124.com because I thought the volunteer and bi-vocational focus of that site may offer a differing perspective. You can read my introduction to the series over on Kidmin1124 here, and I won’t bother to repeat that information. The Monthly Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol is due out next Tuesday, but rather than triple the size of that with Orange Week entries, I have decided to dedicate the next week here on Dad in the Middle to Orange Week. Each morning around 8:00 EST, I will publish a consolidation of all Orange Week entries from the prior day. If you missed any, you’ll be able to catch them here. Plus, I decided there was going to be so much information out there that these summaries will allow you to “come back” to the information when you have more time and not miss any posts. Each day, I will also post a set of links to all of the blogs which I know of that are participating for your reference.

Make sure to check the giveaway over on Kidmin1124 as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have a giveaway to go along with these summaries, but maybe I will see if I can come up with something Orange.

There are two parts to this initial entry. Beginning Monday, and continuing into yesterday, many bloggers offered a brief introduction to the Orange philosophy and Orange Week. These are included in the Intro Posts category. Day One was officially supposed to related to Red Initiatives. As you can see many of the participants stuck to that while many went their own route. Regardless, there is much to learn from all of them!
