We’re well and truly back in Dunedin after our epic adventure. Kidshaper this year was phenomenal, I especially enjoyed being able to share it with some of my team and connecting with heaps of amazing other kids ministry people. I love what God is doing in kids ministry, and I recon that Kidshaper is on the tip of the wave of what He’s up to, that’s why I don’t want to miss a beat!
