Of all of the teams serving on Sunday morning in the church, the children’s ministry volunteers could easily be a contender for the one making the most tangible impact. As Dwight Moody was famous for saying, “If I had to do my whole ministry over again, I’d set it all aside and just work with kids.”
Local church children’s ministry has a potential of making a huge difference in the lives of kids and families. Kids ministry leaders and volunteers play an incredible role in building up the faith of the next generation. It’s not easy work, but it’s important.
Here are 13 Declarations For Children’s Ministry Leaders:
- You are not a babysitter.
- You are a kingdom builder.
- You are on the front lines of ministry.
- You are not only at work growing your church, you’re also growing several other churches where these kids will land later in life.
- God sees your act of service.
- Children matter in the kingdom of God.
- You can’t be a one man show.
- What you do is so important to the overall mission and vision of the church.
- You have a unique opportunity to speak into the lives of kids.
- Don’t give up on kids ministry.
- Kids will gravitate to the oldest person who takes them seriously.
- Children’s ministry teaching is among the most important roles in the church.
- Pray this prayer aloud during your kids ministry times: “I can’t wait to see how you’re going to use these kids in your kingdom work, God!”
Thanks you for your ministry!
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9 NLT
