Here’s what churches are saying about Larry’s Children’s Ministry Consulting Services

- Larry always made himself available when needed. He had excellent ideas and tips to share with us that have really helped!

- Larry communicated very well with our volunteers, helped them with practical aids and examples for teaching, and was very honest with them concerning the ups and downs, and the in's and out's of children's ministry.

- Larry did a great job of evaluating where our ministry was and laid out a plan to help us get to where we wanted to be.

- I thought everything Larry did was helpful for our team.

- His ideas for Sunday School were great! He kept my attention the whole time. He was also very entertaining in his training sessions.

- Since Larry finished his time with us, we have had six families join our church. I think it is a direct result of implementing Larry’s suggestions for our ministry.
