The sole Mission of B. Hudson Ministry is to motivate, inspire and enable parents to teach their children about Jesus while they are in their informative years. Studies show that, the younger a person is when they learn about Christ; the more likely they are to receive Him as their personal Savior.
Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” Matthew 19:14 King James Version

Every chance you get to announce the 'good stuff' in your kids ministry you have the potential
to increase your forward progress. Sunday morning adult services have opportunities to market your ministry.There is no reason you should have to live on an island every service. Your group of children have more energy than any other group in the church so make it work for you! Here are seven ways to increase your church presence:
Have Qualifications: No matter how tempted you are to recruit any warm body you can find, don’t lower your standards. Let people know that only people who meet certain qualifications can be on your team. It takes longer to do it this way, but the workers you recruit will be long term team members who will add to your effectiveness in ministry. Here’s a link to help you recruit workers.
Have Clear Expectations: When you recruit a member to your team, let him know what… Continue

We had an awesome turn out for NO Fear Night 2009. The building was packed to capacity. Every seat in the house was filled, plus a bunch of kids on the floor down front and people standing everywhere possible including the hallway outside the auditorium.
We saw around 40 people come forward to be born again and many others raised their hands but did not come forward. Because of the size of the crowd it was nearly impossible for people to get out… Continue
The most unreached people in the world lie in the 10/40 window, an area of the world stretching from Africa to the Far East. Well, this coming summer, you and your children can help these people hear the Gospel of Jesus by taking an adventure of a lifetime and joining "The 10/40 Expedition: Quest for the Lost Window." This missions-minded curriculum is set up as a five day VBS, but versatile enough to be used as a Backyard Bible Club, missions emphasis, etc.
I have come to believe that people who work with children likely have the healthiest attitude in the body of Christ. If they don’t, they haven’t worked with kids very long. I have discovered that the longer I work with them and the more I think I know about what works or what is effective, the less I know.
I remember telling parent sponsors and team members that “churchy” sounding music won’t work in Kids for Christ. Then I was a guest speaker at another school across town in their… Continue
There are many kinds of drama and performance teams you can start for your children’s ministry. These teams allow children the opportunity to minister in front of a congregation and are great to give children the opportunity to do outreach. Here are some steps if you would like to start a team.
Decide what children will be on the team. Are you going to have every child in the church participate or only those that are interested? Will you have auditions? Also determine the ages of… Continue

I have a cousin that was a full time youth minister. Everyday at lunch he would go to the YMCA and play basketball with the youth from the church and community. One day one of his sons came to him and said, “Dad, I want to grow up and be a minister like you.” This made my cousin feel good that his son wanted to follow in his foot steps. As my cousin pursued this a little by… Continue
Spiritual burnout is a reality for children’s pastors. Children’s pastors are on the front lines fighting for a generation of children. The pressure is enormous. Demonic spirits fight us. The ministry we pour out drains us. Nobody has a clue as to what we do, and we feel like we’re all alone. The average children’s pastor lasts in the average church 1.5 years. How can we avoid burnout?
We can learn from a prophet in the Bible who was also on the front lines - Elijah. James 5:17 NKJV… Continue

I have posted about an event idea that we picked up from a church in Pennsylvania several years ago called Light the Night. It is an evangelical event held in a neighborhood home on October 31, or whenever the local municipality announces the hours of Trick or Treat. Please read my other posts for specific details.
This year, Lynn and I are at a church with a large facility, although the actual size of the congregation has suffered after the death of the church founder 10 years ago.… Continue
