Hey Michael!  Things are going well.  I just took a position at a church as a Children's Director, so we are making the transition from life on the road.  I hope you are well!

I like that you like it.  I figured if I am going to "work" for you, I should like the page. :)

Michael, I was released 10 months ago from children's ministry - a big reason, age (59) - Here's a blog I wrote to inform people where I was at in life - It might encourage. Post only if you feel it has merit. Thanks

Hey man! Nice to be back on CMC! I need to get re-oriented to the site! I just wrote a new blog post today that I would love to share with the group.  Is there a place to do that? Here's a link: http://blog.lifeway.com/kidsministry101/2014/04/09/3-top-tips-for-leading-your-leaders/#.U0Wb7hbdKOK

Hey, Michael - Just wanted to put it out there that the Connect training you did at our network was a huge success.  I'm getting wonderful feedback on both you as a speaker and the training in general.  Thanks again for coming to the Jersey Shore. :)

Thank you for the kind words my friend. Looking forward to seeing you at CPC in Orlando. If I can serve you or your team in any way, just let me know. Blessings.

Looking forward to it - let me know when you are in CO and we'll get that taken care of. Can't have you missing out on more Crave ;-)

Hi Michael,

I really enjoyed CPC San Diego this year in Feb.  It was my first time at the conference and I am already planning for next year to attend!  Are there any opportunities for training in Canada?   I would love to the attending the CM Leadership conference in Sept. but just can't make it.  Thanks for the work within the conference...it was great!

Hey Michael,

How do I get a receipt for the CMconnect Leaders conference I paid for at the cpc conference?

Hey Michael - I need a few fun and thoughtful reviewers/critiquers to read a chapter or two of my new book coming out from Regal in April. It's called "Holding Your Family Together" and I just need to get a pulse of: 1. What worked? 2. What didn't work? 3. What they would suggest to make it better/tighter/clearer? I can fly them the manuscript if they fly me an email. The Regal editors have it at the moment, but I'll have one last chance to clean anything up by the end of the month. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Holding-Your-Family-Together-Simple/dp/0830766316. Any takers can email me directly at rich@faithink.com. Thanks much. You do great work.

We look forward to developing connections in our local Baton Rouge area with other children's pastors and leaders. We will keep in touch as we build these relationships and connect in through INCM. Thanks again Michael!
