Leadership in children’s ministries requires competence, skill, and spiritual wisdom. Our role requires us to serve children in the present, consider the preferred future for them and our ministries, and develop strategies for attaining our ministry goals. We serve families, support pastors, and equip teams. We also steward financial resources, ministry spaces, and the talents of our people.
There are many reasons why it is essential for children’s ministers to grow as leaders. Recently our English-Language Training Specialist Joy Hensley sat with Tennessee State Children’s Ministries Director Kim Batson to discuss the topic of leadership. This conversation is our new podcast for May.
