2 Apologies for Our Dispatch Subscribers

Dispatch Volume 3

As INCM’s Marketing Director, it’s my responsibility to consider how the organization should respond to adversity.

And, when you’re literally shipping a ton of something (in this case, we’re shipping 2,135 pounds of Dispatch this week), you’re likely to run into some issues.

So, to those of you who subscribe to our Dispatch subscription box, we’d like to say something:

We’re sorry. We are deeply sorry.

The first two volumes that we mailed set a standard that we’re going to have to reset for two important reasons.

First, we’d like to apologize that the box size is different.

The Volume 3 box is an inch taller than the previous boxes, and we are sensitive to those of you who have mail slots or mailboxes that will not be able to fix this quarter’s box.

We tried everything we could think of to get the product to fit into the old box – including buying a [broken] ShrinkRay 2000 off eBay – but nothing worked. So, again, we’re sorry.

Next, we’d like to apologize that the box is difficult to open.

The Volume 3 box has so much packed into it that you may actually have trouble getting the box open.

This is a serious issue, and we want to make sure that all of our subscribers are properly equipped to retrieve the items in their box.

Here are some instructions that will help you when your Dispatch box arrives:

  1. Set your Dispatch box on a flat surface.
  2. Open it carefully.

  3. Enjoy your Dispatch box.

Again, we’re really sorry that this may cause you some problems.

If you have any concerns about your Dispatch box, please feel free to send me an email and I will do my best to address your problem right away.

If you aren’t currently a subscriber to Dispatch, and if you don’t mind a big box so full of kidmin resources that it’s hard to open, visit kidmin.com to sign up for $39/quarter or $119/year.

Keep fighting the good fight,

Ian

Your volunteers are busy. Many of them are working full or part-time, taking care of their children. Attending PTA meetings, mom’s groups, or classes. Carting kids to soccer, football, or dance.

Before you jump to managing your volunteers’ lives, consider first how you can help them to lead this coming Sunday morning. Really simply, what does it take to prepare your volunteers for Sunday morning children’s ministry?

4 Tips for Including Men in Your Children’s Ministry

Like many children’s ministers, I joined the ranks by being an over-eager volunteer turned employee. When I was in the basement volunteering, only 1% of our volunteers were men. I didn’t have a male Sunday School teacher until I was 16 years old. It seems an unspoken rule that children’s ministry leaders are female.

Building Children’s Ministry Buy-In With Key Families

Your ministry is amazing! You are passionate and dedicated, and you pour out your enthusiasm week after week, month after month, year after year! And yet, sometimes it can feel like you’re the only one who is totally sold out and bought into the mission of reaching kids for Jesus.
