I came across a great on-line article at the Group Magazine site, How to Relaunch Your Ministry, Five Ways to Refocus, Refresh, and revitalization Your Ministry in the First Month of the New School Year. The five areas is focuses on are:
1. Focus on Yourself
2. Focus on Growing Healthier, Not Growing Bigger
3. Focus on Giving Your Ministry Away
4. Focus on Staying Small
5. Focus on Ministering to Parents
There is a lot of great information in there. It’s written for youth ministry, but the same principles apply to children’s ministry. If you’re in charge of a children’s or youth ministry, you should check it out.
