Ever wish one of your friends could preview a book for you and tell you whether or not it’s any good? That would save you a lot of time, money and energy wouldn’t it? Well, your wish comes true today, pastors and family ministry leaders. Some of the most respected and qualified kid’s pastors and authors- including Brian Dollar, Bob Griffith, Ed Miller, Dale Norman and more- have had the chance to preview this newly released ministry book:

“Your Children’s Ministry Beyond Basics” (Amazon) is the anticipated sequel to 2014’s “Your Children’s Ministry From Scratch” . The sequel goes farther than book 1, into the tougher territory of ministry to children and families- special needs kid’s ministry, ministry after tragedy, creating that “wow” worship space on a budget, the church’s response to bullying/abuse and much more. 

Wondering what they thought of it? I was too. Here’s what they had to say:

“I have lost track of how many churches and leaders I have recommended Trish’s first book to.  Now, she has taken everything to the next level!  This book is jam packed with solid content, brilliant ideas, and proven methods.  Picking right where “Your Children’s Ministry From Scratch” left off, Trish packs every chapter with exactly the right information that you need to build upon a firm foundation of Children’s Ministry. 

This book is never leaving my bookshelf!”

Brian Dollar, Kids Pastor, Author of “I Blew It!” and “Talk Now And Later”, Blogs at briandollar.com


“Reaching the next generation with the gospel is a critical responsibility of the church.  Pastor Trisha Peach is passionate about this ministry and she shares very practice ideas and tools that any Children’s Pastor will find helpful.  In this second book Pastor Trisha touches on such important issues as handling conflict and planning for family outreach.”

Ed Miller, Director of Development, Center for Biblical Parenting


“Every ministry leader needs to be effective at managing change or they won’t last long in today’s culture.  This book provides practical concepts for innovating change in children’s ministry. Trisha has consulted our children’s ministry department with her concepts and helped us successfully navigate several areas of ministry change. We are grateful for the insights she shares in this book! ”

Bob Griffith, Executive Pastor of Family Ministries, Journey Church, Kenosha WI
