17 Ways to Be a Better Children’s and Family Ministry Leader – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

Leadership can never be perfected. I’m sure some of the mistakes and failures immediately come to mind as you think over your leadership experience. That’s ok, as long as you learned something for leading better in the future. And the future is now! And it’s always a great time to assess how you’re doing, what you’ve done well (or not so well), and how you’d like to do better in the future. With that in mind, here are a few…

Finding a Refuge in Love | Lifestream – Christian Article

I don’t think anyone has sent me flowers before. But yesterday, I got an email from a friend in Oregon with a picture of two bouquets of roses.  Mark Warner is a former pastor and former alcoholic who knows the dark side well.

Science & Religion Beyond the Conflict Model – Christian Article

Are you ready for a super fun and nerdy podcast? Dr. Stanely has been an important thinker for my current research project.

What Type of Kids’ Pastor Are You? – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

There are different types of Kids’ Pastors.  This is why it can be unwise to go look at someone else’s program and copy it.  If a church has a successful program, then they built their program around the strengths of the leader; but you may or may not have those same strengths. I’m not saying we shouldn’t learn from others.  Everyone needs a mentor or two, but to totally copy someone else’s ministry is a mistake. Build your ministry around…

How to Make the Most of a Virtual Orange Conference – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

We originally had a different vision for this blog post. It was originally written as a resource to church leaders who couldn’t attend the Orange Conference in person.

In keeping with the trend of social distancing, we’ve shifted the conference to an entirely online format. No, it won’t be quite the same as getting to attend with over 8,000…
