Today on the podcast, Sean speaks with Luke Clifton, a Children’s Minister out of Martinsville Virginia about an event, “Nailed It”.
The idea for the “Nailed It” event came from the show. After inviting families to participate and determine what baked goods they wanted to make, it got rid of the issue of allergies, as well as getting the supplies to the families. Since the families decided what they would create they already had or were able to get the needed supplies.
The basic idea of the event is that the families pick a cake and then they attempt to re-create it. Once the preteens have decided what they will attempt they send a picture of it to the pastor. The preteens during the event take turns showing what the original creation looked like and then revealing their attempt. Luke did not do this as a competition, but it is something that definitely could been done as one.
