In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im are joined by Jana Magruder, director of Lifeway Kids and author of Kids Ministry that Nourishes and Nothing Less. During their conversation, they discuss how the Levels of Biblical Learning can provide a framework for kids ministry and how technology impacts parenting today.
“The Levels of Biblical Learning is truly a framework that a church can use from the baby room to high school graduation.”
“My heart and mind is in the research of Gen Z and technology.”
“VBS is quality-time with Godly men and women who are pouring into the lives of kids and families.”
“The majority of American parents would say yes to a child who is invited to a VBS by a friend.”
“I have challenged my smaller strategy team to re-engage with their giftedness.”
“We are pioneer parents because we are in uncharted territory in the digital world.”
“Don’t get wrapped up in the Instagram family dinner. Standing around the island chatting about your day still counts.”
“Just slow done. And quit wishing for the next season to come.”
“I’m trying to coach myself to not wish the years away, to sit and be still before the Lord and love where you are.”
“It’s hard to slow down when all you know is that you are wired to keep doing the next thing and the next thing.”
