Design Your Best Children's Ministry
with these 3 Key Steps.

Hey, it's Tom! I'm here to help you get a firm handle on building an amazing Children's Ministry that draws families in and graduates lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. Are you ready to be introduced to a unique and proven path to numerical growth and spiritual impact?

NOTE: As of August 15th, 2023, all three steps are being revised. We prefer to wait until that process is complete before making the 3-Step program publicly available.

Meanwhile, the rest of this page gives you a good idea of the value the 3-Steps program can be for your Children's Ministry!

ONE: The Kids Ministry Toolbox - NOW AVAILABLE

Practical wisdom for leveling up your ministry. This downloadable series of articles touches upon many key aspects of kids ministry -- everything from teacher training, overcoming a cheesy budget, the targets you need to aim for, dumb moves to avoid and much more.


Draw new kids and families like magnets with super fun Games/Bible events that work great on Friday nights. These once or twice a month Parties (three years worth), aimed at third to fifth grades, also work well for Middle Schoolers.

THREE: The CLAMbake Sunday School Super Program

A two-year Sunday School course of 100+ classic Bible stories starting in Genesis and ending in Revelation. Comes in four age-levels: Preschool and three levels of Elementary. 

What's happening here is just a joy to see. It's fun, it's creative, it's new and I want you to check it out.


Emeritus Director of NWMinCon, Senior Consultant David C Cook

If it wasn't for Tom I wouldn't be where I am today. And I really love the work that he's done, I've seen what he's done over the years. I highly recommend anyone to take advantage of the service that he's prepared to offer.


Founder and Senior Scholar, Reasons to Believe

Tom is one of the most creative people I know. One of my friends once said, "The essence of creativity is the ability to copy." You get to not only copy but you get to use this incredible stuff wherever you're doing ministry.


President, HomeWord


(in case anyone frequently asks)

What's Your Theology?

The ABOUT page gives the details. In short, we ascribe to the Nicene Creed and believe wholly in the inerrant Bible. Jesus is God's Son and is God the Son. Salvation is found only in Jesus. 

How Long to see changed lives?

You'll see three changes in you ministry right away, assuming you need improvement in these areas: Kids love our KIDS PARTY program (Step 2), so that will have a big impact on the numbers; CLAMbake (Step 3) is very fun for students, so that will brighten up your classes; CLAMbake is fun to teach, so you'll be getting compliments from your teachers. A much longer time is required to watch kids graduate out, grow up and stick with Jesus as we know many will. It's a HUGE blessing to see! 

Wait - Are You The Object Lessons Channel Guys?

Yes! We dig object lessons. Here is the link to our YouTube channel:

What Else Should I Know?

You need to know that any true discipleship takes years. And that means that you need to commit to a years-long ministry if you wish to succeed. Our prayer is that you have a good long 'run' at serving God by working with kids!
