LifeWay Kids Social Media Gets High Marks

Social Media Report Card for Kidmin Publishers
by Tony Kummer

We’re living in exciting times. Some people are even calling it the Communication Revolution. To be sure, technology is adding new ways for all of us to exchange ideas.

This has been a big win for people like us in kids ministry. For the first time we have immediate access to the companies that produce our curriculum. We can give instant feedback and they can quickly make adjustments. Churches can easily share ideas with other churches using the same products. Publishers can even invite end users into the development loop.

With all these new communication channels, some companies are adapting faster than others. In this post I will evaluate a few of the companies and show you how they are getting it right. For this post I’m only looking at the traditional big name curriculum publishers. My grades are mainly based on their support for children’s ministry products.


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
