Exciting New Resource For Kidmin

UPDATE (Dec-08-2016): THIS RESOURCE WAS EXCITING WHEN THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST PUBLISHED. ALAS, IT HAS GONE THE WAY OF MANY THINGS ON THE INTERNET AND IS NO LONGER AN ACTIVE SITE. I STILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHECK OUT CMConnect.org WHICH IS AS ACTIVE AND VIBRANT AS EVER.

 

If I timed this blog entry correctly, there is an exciting new resource for children’s ministry folks which has just been announced by Michael Chanley.  Michael, who is the brainchild behind CMConnect.org has done it again with his brand new resource:

Imakidmin.com is a visual way of seeing where people are located geographically. Have you ever wondered where all those great people you’ve met online are actually located, now you can see at a glance with Imakidmin.com.

The Best Part of My Visit to the CM Expo (Part 2)

Yesterday, I started my list of people I met at this year’s CM Expo in Lexington, KY last Thursday and Friday.  The people I met, and conversations I had, really were the highlight of my trip, but I just ran out of time to write before I could talk about everyone.  With that in mind, I will try to keep my descriptions a little bit shorter today!  So, here we go with the remainder (and/or next part) of my list.

5. Matt McKee (@MattMcKee).  Matt recently moved from the Cincinnati area to Atlanta to help out the ReThink Group and work on his new undertaking – R04R. R04R is a technology company formed to design applications for the IPhone and Android phones for churches and other organizations.  Frankly, I think the work sounds fascinating, and I enjoyed having a chance to talk (even if only very briefly) with Matt about his new company and about his work with ReThink.  Matt is a nice a guy and clearly passionate about what he is doing these days.  On the down side, he did come and sit at the table with us during the Yancy show with the best smelling Arby’s sandwich ever even though we hadn’t had lunch yet, but I can probably forgive him for that.  I can’t wait to find out what Matt is doing next.  I only regret that we didn’t have more time to talk about church signs. 🙂

6. Bob Singleton is the founder and president (and everything else) of God’s Kids Worship.  I recently had the opportunity to correspond with Bob related to my review and giveaway of some CD’s on Dad in the Middle.  I had an idea from that correspondence what type of person Bob would be, and I wasn’t disappointed after I met him.  Bob has a passion for reaching kids through music, and he is really good at it.  My wife and I spoke to Bob and his wife (a fellow numbers person) for quite a while on Thursday night.  I enjoyed learning more about his time working on Barney, how he works with kids, and the research he’s done in the area.  The products, which Bob almost singlehandedly puts together, are top notch, and it was a blast just having some time to chat with Bob and his wife.
