Son of Children's Church Coolness

I'm a little bit behind on blogging about my trip to Louisiana last weekend for our 17th annual Lafayette, LA Puppet Ministry Festival. Crossroads Church in Lafayette have hosted One Way Street every year and they are incredible hosts. Lafayette is one of my favorite places to visit. Everyone there calls me "Brother Todd" or "sir."

Marty Hoey, everyone calls him "Brother Marty," is the children's pastor at Crossroads and he is one amazin' cajun. When I first met him 14 years ago, he was serving God with all his heart as the maintenance man at the church. For the last 12 years he's been leading an amazing crew of volunteers as children's pastor. Take a look at some of the cool kids facilities they've got a Crossroads.

Even the hallways at Crossroads are exciting...

Now all the stuff is cool...but here's what any true children's ministry professional gets excited!!! Check out this resource room!

And I love the way they store the puppets!! Notice the little pictures by each peg so you know which puppets go where.

Brother Marty is all about investing in others. He has a great team and it's a thrill to see the exciting things going on in his ministry!
