What We Do

Consulting, Coaching & Speaking

Greg Baird (founder of Children’s Ministry Leader) has spent 25 years leading in Children’s & Family Ministry. As a pastor, consultant and speaker, he has influenced hundreds of churches and thousands of ministry leaders (see more about Greg by clicking here). He now does this full-time internationally with David C Cook, but he still loves to collaborate locally (throughout the US) to help leaders & churches create healthy Children’s & Family Ministry. He does this on a very limited basis, but let us know what you need and we’ll see what we can do.

Children’s & Family Ministry Assessment ~ You cannot know where to go or how to get there if you don’t know where you are now. Our ministry assessment incorporates a wide variety of information gathering techniques (everything from surveys to personal interviews and on-site observation) to review ministry programs, systems, policies, branding, assimilation, equipping, and more. Based on this information we will provide insightful feedback on the overall health of your Children’s and/or Family Ministry.

Children’s & Family Ministry Strategic Consulting is a collaborative conversation to help you fit together the pieces of your Children’s & Family Ministry puzzle. It typically serves as the second part of the Children’s & Family Ministry Assessment, but also can be a stand alone partnership to address any number of different objectives, including:

  • consulting1Long & short term ministry planning;
  • Alignment of Children’s & Family Ministry vision & program with other areas of the church;
  • Recruiting & equipping volunteer staff;
  • Solving space & facilities issues;
  • Creating effective spiritual formation processes which engage parents as primary disciplers;
  • Leading change & implementing new program ideas;
  • Staff selection, management & development;
  • Challenges unique to your environment.

Ministry & Leadership Development (Individuals or Teams) ~ Having a coach can make all the difference in the world! Someone who’s “been there, done that” and knows the right questions to ask can be invaluable. In this coaching, we offer a mix of intentional teaching and personal & ministry discovery. We’ll cover ministry topics as:

  • Exceptional Children’s & Family Ministry: What It Looks Like
  • Establishing & Casting A Clear & Compelling Vision
  • Embracing Spiritual Formation As A Partnership Between Church & Home
  • Equipping Volunteers To Do The Work Of The Ministry
  • Expanding Leadership Capacity Throughout Your Ministry
  • Engaging Children For Life Change
  • Evaluating Your Ministry From Top To Bottom
  • Envisioning Greater Ministry Than You Ever Thought Possible

In addition, each leader will take 3 assessments – leadership, spiritual giftedness & personality – to help them understand themselves and others that they serve with. We’ll also talk through such topics as time management, personal & ministry organization, and more!
