Children’s ministry is so fun!!!! It’s more then fun though. It’s rewarding. Watching little hearts find Jesus and know they are just as capable of sharing His love with the world as adults is awesome. If I’m being real I would tell you kids ministry is a struggle too. It’s a struggle when you find yourself comparing your ministry to another Kids Ministry out there. Do you ever find yourself comparing your ministry with another? I find myself doing just this. I compare our Kids Life to a ministry much larger with more kids and more resources. Guess what?!?! Every ministry regardless of its size has the same amount of Jesus. You were not called to look like the kids ministry at the church down the street. That’s why you are not there. You are in your ministry because God knows you have what is needed to help shape the ministry the way He has designed it to be. Be true to what God has called you to do. Sure! Share resources. Call on friends in the same type of ministry. I’m only saying shape your ministry around the heart of God and not the heart of others. What is He calling your specific ministry to look like? What do the people in your ministry need? God hasn’t called us to be the same for a reason. Let God shine in your ministry the way He wants and cheer other ministries on as they too are letting Him shine.
2 Chronicles 29:11
“My sons, do not neglect your duties any longer! The Lord has chosen you to stand in his presence, to minister to him, and to lead the people in worship and present offerings to him.”
