"Well i'm just getting started so not exactly sure. I know in the our preschool area I want to knock out 1 wall. The kids (K-6th) area is fairly open. They have dividers that can be moved and changed so rooms can be opened more if needed."

Naming/Remodeling the kids ministry

So I know this has been talked about before probably, but my associate pastor gave me the green light to begin planning a remodel for our kids/preschool areas. Exciting right! Just so you know some background. Our ministries have never had a name before. So i'm looking to name the ministries as we remodel. Also before I got here several years ago they pretty much just put up some bright colors on the walls for the kids area. Our nursery/preschool area looks like its stuck in the 90s literally.…See More

"Thank ya'll for all the help and insight. Me and some of my directors have formed some guidelines and a application and are going to have them go through a training. Overall, i'm just glad we have youth that want to pour into kids lives."

So I was wondering what kind of guidelines ya'll have for teenage helpers? do they have to go to a training, get parent permission? Just curious what everyone else does.See More

You must read to succeed

Posted on August 12, 2014 at 3:24pm 0 Comments

I once had a Bible college professor, who said “You must read to succeed”. Now I don’t know about you but I am not a reader. As a kid, I read the Bible and that was about it. In college reading was a necessary evil. I did not like it but I did it so I could pass my classes. At the time I thought his saying was just for the classes my professor taught, because we had reading quizzes all the time. But I have since realized that this saying applied to far more than just his class but ministry…

Starting a new school year

Well it's hard to believe but summer is actually starting to wind down. To me it seems like summer just started. Maybe your preparing for the last "big" event of the summer. Perhaps your just trying to make sure programs get through the summer or your recovering from the summer already. Either way this can be an important time in ministry. Here are a couple things to help you transition into the fall.

First, finish well. After all summer isn't over yet. There…

Reaching out to kids. . .. outside of church

Posted on August 5, 2014 at 4:50pm 0 Comments

One thing that I love doing is seeing kids outside of a church setting. To me it seems to help everyone relax. I also believe it helps show the kids that you really are the same in church and out of church, you’re a follower of Christ everywhere. Your faith is real. Which is a great example I think they need to see. Here are a two ways I’ve found to connect with kids outside of the typical church environment.

First, you…
