Today is the final episode in our 3-part series about three essentials of a healthy kids ministry. We wrap up the series with an important discussion about culture shaping. What does it look like to have a ministry that is culture shaping? How do you shape your kids ministry to be effective in your community, city, and ultimately the world? Chuck and Jana also discuss how all three essentials come together to form a strong, healthy kids ministry.
Today’s episode begins a 3 part series on the Kids Ministry 101 Podcast where we discuss three essential nutrients that are needed in order to have a healthy kids ministry. Do you know what your philosophy of ministry is? Can your key leaders and volunteers articulate the vision and philosophy of why you do what you do? Jana Magruder, the Director of Kids Ministry at Lifeway, joins us for this series to discuss what we believe are the three essential nutrients that form the foundation of a healthy ministry.
We begin with the idea that your ministry should be Kingdom expanding, rather than ministry building. Jana and Chuck discuss the difference between these two concepts and how that difference will affect the way you lead your volunteers and ultimately shape what you do in your ministry week in and week out.
