    I would love to be able to gift a subscription to our children’s volunteers! That would be a phenomenal way to value them, but is not something we could afford out of pocket. Thanks!

    I would love to bless all my new team members with a copy of this awesome magazine. I have just started in my new position as the children’s pastor here in chagrin falls ohio!

    Because KidzMatter magazine has so much to give that I want to spread the news to as many people as I can….I’m almost excited about this as I am about sharing Jesus with children!!!

  6. 6 Corey Jones said at 9:00 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    The kidmin volunteers of our church are the lifeblood that keeps the church body going. KidzMatter breathes new life into my life and ministry. Getting KidzMatter into the hands of my volunteers would be like giving the church body a triple shot espresso!

  7. 7 Lisa Shaull said at 9:10 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    It’s amazing to be able to provide a resource to your kidmin leaders. It is a way to help them to see that there are resources and encouragement available for them.
    VOlunteers are the energy of the children’s ministries so they need lots of recharging.

  8. 8 Kim Simons said at 9:19 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    Because winning on that day would be awesome-It’s a BIG birthday for me ;o) … I’m also excited to discover this magazine and use it in our ministry!

  9. 9 Tricia Daugherty said at 9:41 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    I recently moved to a new church and am working hard on equipping my volunteers to become better leaders for our children’s Ministry! I believe that KidzMatter will be a great tool to help my volunteers!

  10. 10 Steven Knight said at 9:43 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    I’d love to get my ministry team subscriptions to Kidzmatter Magazine! A few of them are about to graduate college, and I think it they would love getting these!

  11. 11 Angela Sangalang said at 10:16 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    Our kidmin volunteers are very young and cannot afford a lot of resources that will help them in the ministry. A subscription to KidzMatter Magazine is going to be such a blessing to them!

  12. 12 Mary Ellen Rayle said at 11:01 pm on January 28th, 2014:

    I am hopeful for this next generation of leaders in the church. I do whatever I can to equip them for their personally unique ministry to kids and families. KidzMatter is a practical tool that educates and equips, but especially inspires readers to consider how they can bring excellence to their particular corner of ministry. I recommend it often to other Kids’ Pastors and enjoy sharing articles with my team. I would be delighted to win subscriptions for my volunteers.

  13. 13 kimberly said at 1:02 am on January 29th, 2014:

    I am excited to win a copy of kids matter magazine for my church. We are a newer church with new volunteers what a great way to inspire them all!!!

  14. 14 Kathie Phillips said at 1:18 am on January 29th, 2014:

    Aside from devouring the magazine from cover to cover each month, I’d love to win because I never win anything! Pick me! :)

  15. 15 Joey E said at 12:42 pm on January 29th, 2014:

    I’d love to help equip some faithful volunteers!

  16. 16 DLeupp said at 4:55 pm on January 29th, 2014:

    We’re a growing church with a growing kids’ volunteer team of over 100 whom I long to equip effectively! It’s tough to do that on a tight budget in ways that meet a variety of needs–putting KidzMatter in their hands would be fabulous!

  17. 17 Karen Rhodes said at 5:54 pm on January 29th, 2014:

    I’d love to have my own digital copy, and I’d love to share them with our kids’ ministry leaders and workers. Yours is the best magazine. I have to wait until others are done reading our one copy, to read it, so a digital copy of my own would be fantastic. ;0)

  18. 18 Rob L said at 8:59 pm on January 29th, 2014:

    I would love to bless all those who serve beside me sharing the gospel with children. By providing them with the new magazine I would be able to put the latest trends in children’s ministry right in the hand of all my leaders. What a great resource that would be. Thanks Ryan for making this wonderful resource available for all of us.

  20. 20 Bonnie Deroski said at 1:50 am on January 30th, 2014:

    Wow. I love this magazine and would love to share it with my team.

  21. 21 Megan R said at 3:37 am on January 30th, 2014:

    In my (most likely) final year of leading a sensational ministry to kids in our local area, I would love to ensure that I pour everything into the team to follow me in keeping the torch burning.

  22. 22 DeDe Reilly said at 3:25 pm on January 30th, 2014:

    KMagazine is a great read for servants, student workers, parents, and volunteers, as well as us in the daily trenches. Thanks for offering this opportunity to touch so many with words of encouragement, ideas for a whole host of challenges and celebrations, as well as hear voices throughout KidMin world. Whoever is chosen will have their socks blessed off!

  23. 23 Heather said at 4:55 pm on January 30th, 2014:

    I would love a bulk subscription because i know what a great magazine K! is and i could share that with my volunteers!

  24. 24 Jessica Klinker said at 6:26 pm on January 30th, 2014:

    I’m already subscribed. But would love a bulk subscription to share with my volunteers. KidzMatter magazine is the best children’s ministry mag out there:)

  25. 25 Frank said at 4:01 am on January 31st, 2014:

    In a church that is traditional but on the verge of growth and change forward, a bulk subscription of Kidzmatter magazine (formerly K! Magazine) would be a godsend.

  26. 26 Danielle Penix said at 3:28 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    The Children’s Ministry team at our church has gotten Children’s Ministry magazine for years, and we have found this to be very useful and encouraging. Lately, I have been interested in finding a new resource. We are in the middle of a capital improvement campaign and don’t have the funds for an additional subscription- so this would be a blessing!

  27. 27 Debbie Brown Rowley said at 3:45 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    We have awesome volunteers ranging from teens to septuagenarians in our children’s ministries. I can only imagine how much they could grow and improve through access to new ideas and voices in this magazine.

  28. 28 Donnie said at 3:48 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I purchased a bulk subscription to K magazine a couple of weeks ago for a 42 of my volunteers. It’s a great way to keep them thinking about what God is doing in children’s ministry and to train them throughout the year. I would love to give to the other volunteers that serve less frequently for the same reasons.

  29. 29 Nancy Keith said at 3:51 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    KMagazine is the most relevant tool for anyone in Children’s Ministry. The articles are thoughtful, meaningful and full of truly applicable ideas for ministry. Every children’s ministry could benefit from this great resource….especially mine!!!

  30. 30 Kilra Williams said at 3:53 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Winning this subscription would provide a wealth of information and valuable resources to our Kidz ministry team. We have grown tremendously since our launch last year. We just recruited new volunteers. We’ve scheduled training sessions for the month of February and this subscription would be a timely blessing for us. Please consider sowing this seed into a new children’s ministry.

  31. 31 Chris Young said at 4:05 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    This would be a great way to get excellent training and kidmin resources in the hands of my children’s ministry team. Some other kidmin equipping resources fall short, but I like that KidzMatter stays on the cutting edge.

  32. 32 Jefferson said at 4:24 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would love to be able to pour into my team new ideas and thoughts for doing Ministry by giving them an opportunity to tap into the minds some of the top leaders in Kids Ministry. Through this subscription our team will be motivated and encouraged in their mission to make a difference for eternity in the lives of those around them.

  33. 33 Sheri said at 4:26 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    The new magazine is awesome and would be a great tool for keeping our volunteers informed and up to date for all things related to Children’s Ministry!

  34. 34 Ellen Moore said at 4:44 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Love Kidzmatter Magazine! Just attended Revitalize in Houston! Would love the opportunity to share the inspiration with all of our volunteers!!

  35. 35 Gina Johnson said at 5:23 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would love to win this because KMagazine is a great magazine and I could share it.

  36. 36 Angela said at 6:07 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Our volunteers ROCK! They have been stretched over this last year with many changes in our Children Ministry. Very proud of them all, we would love to invest in their life putting a tool in there hands that would feed them, build them,spark their imagination, and challenge them. Our volunteers have chosen to invest into the lives of children. We to love to support them any way we can. KMagazine is all that wrapped in one.

  37. 37 Camille Wells said at 6:47 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would love for my team to have their own subscription! There are so many awesome things in the magazine that they need to read!

  38. 38 Sarah said at 7:14 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would love to share this with our team of teachers. I train teachers and having your resource at hand would enrich it.

  39. 39 Leo Ayala said at 7:21 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Great magazine…I’m a Children Director in Puerto Rico. There is no children’s ministry conference in my country so I can’t pay for my hole team to fly to the states for a conference. If I have the subscription at least I have a great magazine to share it with them and keep growing as children’s ministers…

  40. 40 Christy said at 7:33 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Our small church would love the ideas and encouragement from the magazine. With a tiny, tiny budget and only lay leaders, I think it would be a real help to us!

  41. 41 Chris said at 7:55 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I get several magazines in the mail….yours is the only one I sit and read EVERY month! I would love to be able to share this with all of my volunteers – keep up the good work!

  42. 42 Maria Steiner Bones said at 8:04 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    Wow I would love to bless our volunteers with such an amazing resource! I hope I win. Gotta love a community on the same page…literally! haha

  43. 43 Jeff said at 8:26 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would use them as a part of my Timothy Group. I am mentoring some local Children’s workers in other churches and would be able to bless them with this gift. I would also utilize a few for some of my key volunteers.

  44. 44 Cheryl Walsh said at 9:00 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I would be thrilled beyond measure to receive a bulk subscription. I check out what is available online all the time and take any old KM magazines from the big church pastors. As a small church children’s pastor even a salary is not always possible so getting a bulk subscription would be such a blessing! It’s like “make a wish foundation” for Children’s pastors!!!

  45. 45 catherine said at 9:55 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    I love our volunteers.. they are amazing! I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to resource them and inspire them even more!

  46. 46 Rachel said at 11:03 pm on January 31st, 2014:

    What a fantastic way to upskill and support leaders and in a small church with a very new Kids Pastor (me) and and all help in accomplishing this is very very appreciated :)

  47. 47 Nahum Hall said at 8:35 am on February 1st, 2014:

    As the only children’s worker in our church, I need all the resources I can get.

  48. 48 sheila jurado-cabiles said at 12:06 pm on February 1st, 2014:

    your magazine will surely help me a lot. i am from the philippines and there is no magazine i can get hold of here like yours. i opened a free pre-school for the indigents or less privileged in my place where everything is free including their lunch limited to 12 children only. then i organized a prayer group every saturday dawn there are 17 children with us. i want to train and disciple them and so, this magazine can help me so much.

  49. 49 Keith Venable said at 3:54 pm on February 2nd, 2014:

    One of our greatest struggles is in recruiting AND keeping good volunteers. I feel that the bulk subscription will help to create a more passionate focus and vision for our teams and will provide some much-needed on-your-own training and encouragement in addition to what we attempt to offer. Whether I win or not, I know that so many churches are in the same boat. It will certainly be a blessing to someone.

  50. 50 Miranda said at 2:43 am on February 3rd, 2014:

    Love getting to put resources in the hands of my volunteers. This would be a huge blessing!

  51. 51 Dawn Budd said at 3:49 pm on February 3rd, 2014:

    This would be a beneficial tool for the many new workers we have in our minsitry (many of which have not even been a child in children’s ministry let alone working in it). It would also provide opportunities to build community by providing common ground for discussions.

  52. 52 Sharon said at 11:47 pm on February 3rd, 2014:

    It matters what we as Kids Leaders and helpers are putting into our hearts & minds! Whatever is beneficial think on these things, your magazine is such an excellent resource and would be a great reward for all my leaders & helpers!
    Thanks for blessing Kids ministers/ leaders with this resource.
    Keep up the good work!

  53. 53 Dennis Snell said at 12:23 am on February 4th, 2014:

    I look for resources to share with people that I work with. I feel that this would be an excellent resource to share with people.

  54. 54 Rachel said at 10:59 pm on February 17th, 2014:

    My curiosity is killing me … who won???

  55. 55 Ryan said at 4:04 am on February 20th, 2014:

    Rachel, thanks for the reminder to announce the winners! I just posted that on the blog! Thanks again!

  56. 56 And The Winners Are… | KidzMatter said at 8:16 pm on February 24th, 2014:

    […] few weeks ago we announced a big contest. Five of our blog followers were given the chance to win a subscription to KidzMatter […]

  57. 57 Peter Johnston said at 6:00 am on February 3rd, 2015:

    I firmly believe that the most valuable resource in any classroom in our church is not some cool curriculum, relevant resource, or new piece of technology, but it is the teacher. So I try to constantly make sure my volunteers are effectively equipped and encouraged, and I know these subscriptions to KidzMatter would help to to equip and encourage them.
