When kids arrive to one of your programs, what is the atmosphere like?
Let me take a moment and encourage you to be intentional about the sound that welcomes kids into your environment.
Are you playing music that you or their parents might listen to in the car? Maybe WOW Worship 2001? Are you playing music with a choir of kids singing the vocals? Would an outsider to your program ever choose to listen to a poorly produced CD with children’s voices singing the lyrics?
If you haven’t yet evaluated the sound in your environment, or if you’re looking for something to add to your arsenal, let me introduce you to Yancy.
Listen to a song or two in this pop-up player, and then come back to the post.

Whatever music you choose, it should have the production value (or better) of Yancy.
Whatever music you choose, it should be something you’re proud of, not something you’re putting on because you should have something playing when kids come in.
Whatever music you choose, it needs to remind kids that their faith is something that should be integrated into their lives… not something that’s separate. When a kidmin environment sounds like a place they want to hang out, kids will be more likely to bring their friends along with them.
I’m adding Yancy to our playlist, and I encourage you to do the same.
This is great stuff.
