Kidmin Conference Nuggets

cpc book<

I’m a children’s pastor for a non-denominational church in Southern California. If you are in the business of working with children or do ministry and into leadership stuff read on…
After a great children’s conference it’s very easy to back into the grind of ministry and even forget to unpack all the “Aha!” moments and apply practical learnings into what we do. I am working on being more strategic with how I do kidmin at my church with my team. With that here are some golden nuggets I got from CPC 14:

  • Sometimes, you don’t need more resources. You just need to remember what God has done in the past.
  • When you do teach, stay focused on one theme. Stick to it!
  • Don’t recruit out of need because that’s not what motivates people. Vision does.
  • Never underestimate the value of training.
  • Keep telling stories to engage your children but don’t be afraid to teach a principle that cannot be explained through a bible story.
  • Kids will not believe you if you don’t have fun with them.
  • It’s not about behavior conforming . It’s about hearts transforming.

I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7.
