Lessons from a conference

20130723-123340.jpg

I’m still recovering from conference hangover as I type this. I will spare you the details, but if children’s ministry is involved in a conference then that means tons of pizza. At least around here it does. With an abundance of pizza flowing over a period of a few days, bloating and gassiness are unavoidable. So, what did I learn or re-learn from a conference we just finished at our church?

  • What worked last time doesn’t equate to automatic success the next time.
  • Always have back-up plans.
  • There is no such thing as overstaffing an event for children.
  • When all else fails, have a dance contest.

Special events are always heaps of hard work and long days. The process is just as important as the actual event. I realize that┬áJesus loves me whether I think the event was a resounding success or miserable failure. The truth is… so do the kids.
