How do you choose curriculum?

Choosing the right curriculum is a daunting challenge for many in children’s ministry. Ultimately, the program we choose to follow will impact the spiritual development of our children and will impact our volunteer teams’ ability to serve effectively. Yeah, it’s a big deal. This month we have been working to help take the edge off of these decisions and to equip you to make better decisions about curriculum selection.

If you want to grab some great training on this topic, here are some links to resources from our media store:

As we build into this theme, it is also a great time to lean into the uniqueness of our ministry.INCM is distinct in that we are not a publishing company. In fact, we are honored to provide the only national level children’s ministry conference that is not ran by a publishing resource. We are a training resource for the church and we exist to serve you. We believe this authentic and independent part of our DNA allows us to have an open conversation about what will best serve you and your church… with no hidden agenda.

We invite you to join in the conversations we will be having online this month at CMConnect. You can join us for the free weekly chats on Tuesdays at 2 pm est or check out any of our free content. We have a tremendous host of great bloggers and forum discussions all designed to serve you.

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.
