Who

My name is Brittany and I am the creator of Deeper KidMin. I’m a former children’s pastor married to a full-time youth pastor. When my husband and I realized that both of us leading separate, full-time ministries wasn’t going to be sustainable long-term, I started Deeper KidMin as a place to share my administrative gifts (sometimes called OCD tendencies) and my creativity (never be afraid to get silly for God) with other KidMin leaders. I knew that if I could no longer BE a children’s pastor, I wanted to SUPPORT children’s pastors. And that’s the goal of Deeper KidMin.

One year in, I realized that I wasn’t the only one with creative ideas and fun printables, so I opened the DKM Marketplace (like Teachers Pay Teachers or Download Youth Ministry, but for children’s pastors) and invited other kidmin leaders to join me. I love connecting and collaborating with kidmin creatives from all over the world! Meet all of our Vendors (and browse their incredible resources) here.

In addition to running Deeper KidMin, I also work part-time on our church staff in an administrative position. My husband and I welcomed our first baby girl, Holloway, in February 2020, and we are loving life as new parents! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature and a Master’s degree in Children, Youth, and Family ministry. I enjoy reading good books, drinking hot herbal tea, and doing yoga. One day, I hope to run the Disney Princess half marathon dressed as my favorite Disney princess, Belle.

What

Deeper KidMin has two main parts: the blog and the DKM Marketplace.

The blog highlights innovative thoughts and practical resources for KidMin leaders to use in their ministries and for parents to use at home. Deeper KidMin is an online ministry source that equips parents and ministry leaders to grow kids deeper in their relationships with Christ through creative, engaging, and affordable resources. We also share a free download every Friday on the blog!

The Deeper KidMin Marketplace is a digital marketplace of resources for kidmin leaders by kidmin leaders. The DKM Marketplace is where children’s ministry leaders share the resources they’ve created for their ministries at an affordable price that won’t break your budget. All of our products are instant digital downloads available immediately after payment is received. Want to be a DKM Marketplace Vendor and sell what you’ve created for your ministry?

Why

Because kids need leaders and parents who are willing to grow them deeper in their walks with God and relationships with Christ.
