What’s New?

Courtesy of David Castillo Dominici,

I’m in a new place of ministry and have done a lot of evaluation.  I see the normal things, volunteers need training, facilities need facelift, equipment needs updating, systems need updating and implementation. All of the usual suspects when a new leader comes to town.

Today, what’s been on my mind since I woke up at 4:45 AM. What can I do that’s NEW? What have I never tried before that I should try here? How do I break the mold of “we have always done it this way?”

My personality loves change, in fact, I probably love it too much, because I often change things even when I don’t need to because I like change. But, sometimes my “change” is doing something I did at a previous ministry, because it worked great there.  But today the nagging question is, “What haven’t I tried, that I could try now?”  What can I attempt that hasn’t been done before?  Yes, I know there is nothing NEW under the sun! BUT, should that stop me from trying to find something new?

I don’t want my children’s ministry to get stuck, I don’t want it to just do things because it always worked here before.  I want to be bold for God and I want to find ways to really impact this young generation for God.
