North Little Rock, AR / First Assembly of God

Brian began in Kids’ Ministry in 1992.  He has served at two churches, The Oaks Fellowship (Dallas, TX 1992–1999) and First Assembly NLR (North Little Rock, AR 1999–Present). He loves kids, Kidmin Leaders, and everything that involves leading children in their spiritual journey!

Brian founded High Voltage Kids Ministry Resources in 1998, which creates and provides Kids’ Church curriculum, music, games, videos, and more to churches around the world.

Brian has had the privilege of speaking at many Kidmin conferences, workshops, seminars, etc. He has a passion for passing on what God has enabled him to learn from his years of ministry and learning from other Kidmin Leaders!  He is the author of “I Blew It!”, a Kidmin Leadership book that helps others avoid the biggest mistakes in Kids’ Ministry.

Brian and his wife of 17 years, Cherith, have two amazing children.

Brian created this blog to share and interact with other Kidmin Leaders. The goal is not to write about what HE wants to talk about (well, sometimes), but rather what YOU want to hear and learn about. Each week, Brian will take a question regarding Kids’ Ministry that has been submitted by a reader and answer it based on what he has learned in his over 20 years of Kids’ Ministry. Hopefully, it helps someone!

A Kids’ Pastor’s Response to the Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States determined that marriage between homosexual couples would be legally recognized in all fifty states.

It’s hard for any parent to control the context in which their child may have conversations regarding this important topic. Many Christian parents have struggled with the question, “How do I talk to my kids about this?”
