Kids' Media...The Most Popular Producers and Outlets

If you serve in children's ministry, it's important to stay up to speed about kids' culture.

You are a missionary to kids.  That means you should learn as much as you can about their likes and leanings.

One important aspect of this is to keep up with what media, shows, movies, etc. they are patronizing.  

You have to be intentional about staying connected to their world.

When you do this, it will demonstrate to the kids that you care enough to dive into their world and know what they like and don't like.

With that in mind, here are the current most popular shows for kids. The list comes from one of my favorite kid-focused companies...Kidscreen.

This past weekend I was serving in the elementary ministry at my home church.  We had a first-time guest walk into the room.  I could tell he was nervous about being in a new place.  He went over to the corner and sat nervously looking around.

I walked over and started talking to him and welcoming him.  He didn't respond much at first.  But then I started talking with him about his video game system and what games he liked.  His face lit up and he started talking with me.  

Be familiar with the above list. Entering a child's world can open a kid's heart to what you have to say when you are teaching.
