In this episode, I am joined by Carl Barnhill and Jason Noble to discuss digital media within children's ministry as well as some tips, tricks, and best practices within a digital strategy. Carl and Jason curate and provide resources through multiple sites including 1230kids.com and TwelveThirty.media.

Struggles for kid's ministry leaders and what has changed:
- A search for what to do in the “new normal” after COVID
- How to reach kids and families
- Finding digital solutions and media
- Teaching/Lead Pastors only need the media
- Kid's ministry leaders need curriculum and media
- Volunteers need support
- Leaders are tired and worn out
- Looking for plug-n-play solutions
- How to do ministry moving forward
- Discipleship for kids
What should online kids' ministry look like?
- People are hungry for connection and relationship
- This will trump whatever is online
- Promote family time
- Promote a strong relationship for each kid with another caring adult
- Plan to have both an in-person and an online experience (not as a replacement, but something to take them further)
Most important equipment to invest in?
- Dedicated iMac computer (new or refurbished)
- Suite license to a presentation software (Media Shout or ProPresenter are options)
- TVs to present on (but if you can't do that, then a projector works)
- Check out 1230 Kids and TwelveThirty Media
- Evaluate your digital strategy
- Streamline your digital process – with the right gear
