I’m a football fan, I really love football! As I watched the end of the NFL season I found it very interesting to hear all the changes some of the teams were making. I live close to Cleveland and the Browns are one of those teams where major changes are happening….AGAIN! Over the past few years this team has suffered so many loses I don’t know how they get season ticket holders. I mean these people are the definition of “long-suffering.”
It’s hard to believe that one year ago, God allowed Ron Brooks (http://pastorronbrooks.com) and I to come together with a dream of bringing the children’s ministry community together to help strengthen and encourage those who serve. Both of us had always enjoyed networking with others in kids ministry and that love for networking blossomed into something that only God could do.
As any children’s Pastor knows when the fall season approaches so does the planning overdrive for the holidays. After one survives the fall “kick-off” events you must turn your thinking to all the upcoming holidays. I thought I’d share a few things I usually do to help keep my self focused both personally and in ministry so that the holiday season doesn’t burn me out.
Parents need help! If you’re a parent, wouldn’t your journey be easier if someone had shown you the way to training your children? If you have had the opportunity to have a parenting mentor, I’m sure you are already answering YES!
Often times children’s pastor’s get the summer time blues because as soon as school lets out, people disappear! Nothing is more heartbreaking that to see all that momentum that you were building suddenly, groan to a slow rumble. Why does this have to happen? Do we contribute to it? Can we prevent it or do anything to counteract it?
