17 Ways to Be a Better Children’s and Family Ministry Leader

Leadership can never be perfected. I’m sure some of the mistakes and failures immediately come to mind as you think over your leadership experience. That’s ok, as long as you learned something for leading better in the future.

And the future is now! And it’s always a great time to assess how you’re doing, what you’ve done well (or not so well), and how you’d like to do better in the future.

With that in mind, here are a few ideas – in no particular order – to help you lead better.

Stop begging trying to fill the needs in your ministry! IF people respond, it will likely be only short term. Obligatory service doesn’t inspire people to stick around.

Instead, understand the grand vision we are pursuing by investing in children’s lives for eternity!

Practice articulating that vision and start sharing it in every conversation. It’s a privilege and honor to be part of such important service, so INVITE people into that opportunity.

And, of course, never forget the foundation for building our team, found in Luke 10:2: “These were his [Jesus’] instructions to them: ‘The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.’”
