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.

20140205-135358.jpgHUGE THANKS and SHOUT OUT to the AMPt team from AMPtcommunity.com for the featured interview. I’m glad to be part of a growing community of mobile artists from around the globe. I have in my pocket a device that not only makes phone calls, but enables me to take pictures and share them almost instantly with others. Mobile photography is a world-game-changer, and I’m excited take an active part in it. I discovered a passion that is very accessible for me and get to share it with people with the same passion (regardless of skill level) on AMPt!
