Explore timeless strategies for developing your influence as a children’s ministry leader.

Cycles of Growth: The Key to Stability in Ministry

Every leader wants two things for their ministry: growth and stability. They want the ministries they lead to increase their impact and remain stable amid adversity. Understanding what brings these goals about is both easy and elusive. It’s easy because we know that the stability of any ministry is founded on the solid rock of God’s unfailing word and is grown through the Spirit’s life-changing work. It’s also elusive because it doesn’t come by sitting idly and doing nothing.

CPC Learning: How to Implement New Ideas

I love Orlando in January! It’s the time of year that I get to go to the Children’s Pastors Conference (CPC). From the moment the confetti falls at the end of CPC, my heart longs for the next time I can reunite with friends who have become family. I work throughout the year to grow new friendships that I formed while at CPC.

A Reminder to Rest for Leaders

You’re only a week away from Christmas Eve and Day services, with events in between.

And the last thing you need is to feel overwhelmed. But, let’s face it, you probably are.

You’re might be stress-eating cookies in the break room and downing your 4th cup of coffee of the day to stay on top of the events that will welcome old and new kids to church for maybe the first time ever or in a long time.
Christmas services feel like the stakes are high! And they are. This could be an opportunity for a kid to meet Jesus for the very first time.

Redemption through Pain: God Is Shaping Us

All of us have pain in our lives. As children’s ministry leaders, some of us avoid dealing with our own pain because there is so much other pain that we see that needs to be healed.
We might feel we don’t have the time or energy to deal with the pain.
Maybe we feel hopeless thinking that nothing can take away the pain that we experience from our childhoods, family members, or the world.

Leaders are Lifelong Learners

A good leader knows a lot. A great leader grows what they know through a lifetime of learning. As a children’s ministry leader, you know a lot. You know how to captivate a room full of children. You know how to manage behavior and social issues. You know how to take a shoestring budget and run a VBS that knocks the socks off your community.

Tips for Marriage and Ministry

Being married in ministry offers its own sets of blessings and challenges. But the challenges can be vastly reduced by using a few tips for marriage and ministry. My husband David and I have been married for nearly 24 years, and the whole time we have had kids. We’re a blended family. Our oldest is from my husband’s first marriage who I adopted when we got married. Our middle daughter we adopted out of foster care. Our youngest is ours together. Since we said “I do” it has always been busy, and we all know that life and ministry can be chaotic and challenging.
