We had an amazing time at our most recent Kidology to Go in Sylvania, Ohio. Our host church was McCord Road Christian Church and Children’s Minister Becky Rydman. Becky was a fabulous host, so organized and thoughtful.
Becky, her husband Tony and their daughter Ellie, took us to dinner Friday evening at a Toledo favorite, Tony Packo’s! We enjoyed some great hot dogs, fried pickles, German hot potato salad and chicken chili! We also perused some of the famous signed hot dog buns from celebrities like Jerry Seinfield and Walter Mondale.
On Saturday, the day of the conference, Becky had a continental breakfast, a yummy lunch with gourmet cupcakes and childcare for all the conference attendees. Water bottles and snack were available all day and we really enjoyed getting to know all the volunteers from McCord Road Christian Church and other area churches. The day was punctuated by a fun seminar I call “20 Games for under $5″ where we got lots of the folks who came to participate!
Thanks again to Becky and her husband and staff who made this a terrific and affordable children’s ministry training day!

McCord Road Christian Church has a great children’s ministry and Becky would love to share with you the vision of their church and the strategies they have implemented there. Their motto is
Partnering with parents in leading children down the road of faith.
Becky said, “Whether it’s KidzTime, Kidz on a Mission, Club 56, or VBS, everything we do strives to introduce “kidz” to Jesus and get them excited about their Christian walk!” What a great outlook on serving kids in the name of Jesus.
