Relating Through Small Groups

Kids build relationships through interaction and shared experiences. Small groups can facilitate those relationships between children and their leader. A small-group leader takes time to relate to each child, and not only by name. This leader may be the adult a child can look up to, a leader who can know and care when the child is missing, sick, or distraught. Check out three pointers that can help kids build strong relationships through small groups.

To Be Spiritually Enriched

I do physical performances including mime, unicycling, and circus slapstick. I’m in my 50s and my body does not react the same as when I was in my 20s. In order to do what I do, I need to stay physically fit. Just as athletes train, I also need to physically train so that I can do this performance ministry.

Looking Back - Randy Christensen

Through the years I’ve served at churches with attendances of between 80 and 4,300 people. Though job descriptions have changed from church to church, I’ve found that most of the principles and ministry values remained the same.
