What is the best lesson you have learned in children's ministry?

The best lesson I have learned in Children's Ministry is that kids shouldn't just be ministered to but should be a vital part of the ministering. They are never too young to be used by God!

What is it that you love about being in children's ministry?

The thing I love most about being in Children's Ministry is those moments when you see a child "REALLY" get it. You know that moment when you see them putting their faith into action - that's the moments I love most!

What is the best lesson you have learned in children's ministry?

I will give you two.

  1. Be patient. It's easier said than done. I have been frustrated with the speed of progress at times and realized that my frustration was only making things worse. There is a difference between patient and lazy. A lazy leader waits for something to happen and a patient person is allowing the results of their labor to be produced. You can't cry about the lack of fruit if you haven't planted a seed.
  2. Implement a culture and process that will outlast you. If I only serve my own interest and leave a void when my time is up that's selfish. I think about what it's going to be minus me.

What is it that you love about being in children's ministry?

Seeing a child's faith develop over the years. I also really love the bluntness of children.

What book are you reading right now?

Titus and James ... The most recent one I've finished was "Good or God" by John Bevere.

What does a "perfect day" in kidmin look like for you?

No drama and lives changed.

What do you love about the AG?

I'm most thankful for the relationships with others and the understanding that we are all working towards one common goal.
