Gina McClain is a speaker, writer & Children’s Ministry Director at Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, TN.  Her marriage to Kyle McClain keeps her marginally sane while their 3 kids (Keegan, Josie and Connor) keep her from taking herself too seriously.  Her driving motivator is to lead Christ-followers to embrace and foster ministry in their home.  If the living room is the hub of ministry, the neighborhood is different.  If the neighborhood is different, the city is different.  If the city is different, the church cannot be contained.



You are the light of the world.

A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Matt 5:13


  1. Hi Gina! my name is Jordan Ledwell and I am the kids pastor at Freedom Church in Acworth, GA. I really appreciate your blog and candor about kidmin and one of my team members suggested that we try to get in touch with you to see if you would be available at any point during OC15 for a brief meeting where we could ask you some questions one-on-one. We would send you the questions beforehand and we would be honored if you had the time to make this happen. Thanks for your time and attention and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

    • Jordan,

      It would be an honor to meet. I’d love the opportunity to be sharpened by other ministry leaders. I’ll message you and we’ll set something up.


  2. I was at your Breakout Session on Measuring Success in Children’s Ministry in Atlanta last week. You mentioned that your notes were on your website. Where can I print them off at?

  3. Thanks Gina for the FREE ebook! That’s awesome!

    • Thanks, Linda! If it adds value to your ministry, tell others about it.

  4. Gina,
    My name is Alan-Michael Sprinkle, and I am a Knoxville native but I am currently serving outside of Asheville, NC as a Children’s Pastor. I would love to be in touch with you and glean some Children’s Ministry wisdom from you if that’s possible!

    I just purchased your book “Don’t Quit”, and I love it. Thank you for writing this. It is so reassuring, and this is something that I had a “come to Jesus” moment about this past Summer!
