From October 2010 through October 2011, our first year with Kidology to Go was an amazing experience. I hope you enjoy the highlights in the video!

Yesterday we held our second Kidology to Go in the great city of Wichita, Kansas and Asbury Methodist Church. Children’s Pastor Jerred Haydock was our host and several other churches from the area sent their staff and volunteers to be part of this fun and encouraging day. We always end each session with a time of questions, answers and idea swapping. It never fails that I get some great ideas through this idea swap meet. Yesterday as we were sharing methods of classroom and behavior management, one of the ladies in the group had a great concept she shared with us. She said she often says “I challenge you to …..” when dealing with a behavior issue at her church. What a great concept!
The whole day was so fun. We loved getting to meet new friends who shared their appreciation for coming and sharing some insights God has shown us over the years of working with kids. Jerred is a great children’s pastor who organized this event with great detail. It is obvious he cares about the kids and families in his church as he takes time on a busy Sunday morning to interact with kids, calling them by name and stopping to address needs that arise. He was also a great host for us and worked hard to make sure we were taken care of, which was very appreciated.
We look forward to working with more churches in the new year, and we are actively looking for host churches in New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California in the first three months of 2011. Give me (Marty) a call at 847-707-7552 to set up a date!
One of the exciting things about traveling around the continent is that I will be meeting up with people I haven’t seen in a super long time. Our third Kidology to Go will be just that!
On Saturday, November 20th Asbury Church in Wichita, Kansas will be hosting a Kidology to Go. Asbury has four campuses, and their Central Campus Children’s Pastor Jerred Haydock will spearhead this event for us. The event will also take place at their central campus at 2801 West 15th Street, Wichita, KS 67203. Pastor Jerred has a very active and exciting ministry at Asbury called Blast Kid’s Ministry, where their mission is To see every child grow up the same way Jesus did “in wisdom stature, and favor with God and man.”
Asbury holds a special place for me because I once served as Children’s Pastor there a decade ago. Many of the people we knew at Asbury are still there serving and growing in Jesus, including their senior pastor Dennis Wallace and his wife Ladonna. Wichita is a great city but has gone through a lot since 9/11 because it’s economy is closely tied to the airline industry. I look forward to coming back to this tremendous church and city to bring some training, inspiration and fun!! Register online if you live in Kansas or Oklahoma or even Texas!
We are so thrilled to announce we have officially scheduled the first Kidology to Go!
Locust Grove Free Will Baptist Church in Locust Grove, Oklahoma will be the host church for the Kidology to Go seminar on Saturday, November 6th, 2010.
Our host, Children’s Pastor Jacob Myers, noted, “our team is super excited about Kidology to Go coming to our church!”

Locust Grove is near Tulsa, Oklahoma and is a great town like so many in mid-America. It reminds me of the small town I am currently living in. We encourage anyone near eastern Oklahoma, northwestern Arkansas or southwestern Missouri to consider coming to this Kidology to Go.
We are planning lots of fun and it will also be a great opportunity to network with other children’s pastors and volunteers. Bring along some others from your church!
