About Us

Bring Them In is a ministry dedicated to helping those in the Bus and Children's Ministry of the local church. We do this through our Children's Ministry Training Events, our books, materials and resources, and this website. Bring Them In conferences and seminars have been attended by thousands of children’s workers from hundreds of churches for over 40 years.

Bring Them In is a non-profit organization. When you shop in our online catalog, you help to support this ministry, as well as the ministries that we help through the Bring Them In Evangelistic Association, Inc. Donations are appreciated as well, and are tax deductible.

We love kids and want to help you and your church to be successful in developing excellence in every area of your children's ministry.
