Ministry Tech Tools: Countdown videos

Everyone wants their students to be excited about Sunday Morning and Mid Week services. When kids are fired up about starting a service the enthusiasm fills the air!

One easy way to start a service is a countdown. A countdown can be NO expense, or it can be $$ expense.

The simplest form would be to just start off by yelling out (or using a microphone) 10, 9, 8, etc, 3, 2, 1! And then, “Welcome to ____________!!” Your students will eventually expect the countdown every week and it will create anticipation and excitement for the group. It will also let the students know when it is time to start the service. This is really important because we are on a limited time schedule and we want to make the most of our time.

So that was the free way. You can up your game by using projection software and using countdown videos. Some are free and others are a little more costly.

The gang over at put together some videos that are sure to make your children’s ministry laugh and get into the countdown.

If kids know to expect something funny each week, then you need to use your projection software for announcements too. If they are staring at the screen give them info too. Have your upcoming events listed up there so they can get excited about what is going on in your kid’s ministry.

Leave a comment below letting me know of great ideas or resources you use for “the countdown.”
