5 Reasons to Quit Children’s Ministry

5 Reasons to Quit Children’s Ministry

  1. You are begging for volunteers instead of building relationships. 

  2. You are entertaining kids instead of engaging them for life-change. 

  3. You are being the Lone Ranger instead of being a leader. 

  4. You are providing childcare instead of offering soul-care. 

  5. You are enabling parents to abdicate spiritual responsibilities instead of equipping them to handle them. 

dont_quitIf you are doing these and choosing to continue to do these, you might as well quit Children’s Ministry right now.

I would encourage you, though…don’t quit.  Instead, equip yourself to lead effectively. It’s a mindset and a steady implementation of principles that at first might seem counter-intuitive – and next to impossible!  But commit to them and, over time, they work!

When you want to quit…don’t!  Take a look at what you’re doing – ask for help even – and change the way you lead instead.

Founder of Children's Ministry Leader & Vice President of Global Resources at David C Cook

The most important thing to know about me is that I am blessed beyond measure to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to have married way over my head to my wife, Michele, and that I have two incredible grown sons named Taylor and Garret.


I serve as the Vice President of Global Resources in the Global Mission department at David C. Cook.


I love what I do as it is the outflow of 25 years of ministry experience as Children’s, Family & Administrative Pastor, consultant, trainer, speaker and short-term missions leader.
