Children's Ministry Check Up & Consulting

Our Children’s Ministry Check Up & Strategic Consulting offers a comprehensive assessment of your Children’s and/or Family Ministry resulting in a complete Assessment Report and a comprehensive Recommended Action Plan. This is followed (optionally) by working together to create a Ministry Design and a period of implementation.

The entire process is personally lead by Greg Baird and built around the Children’s Ministry Leader Framework?.

Here is what all of this looks like:

Phase One (Children’s Ministry Check Up): Diagnostics 

Typically takes 4 – 6 weeks to complete.


  • Information gathering via:
    • A comprehensive questionnaire focused on critical areas of your Children’s Ministry to be completed by senior leadership, Children’s Ministry staff/core leaders;
    • Easy to complete surveys for volunteers, parents & children (upper elementary);
    • On-site observation of all regular services;
    • On-site interviews with key leaders (senior level & children?s ministry);
    • On-going interaction with church leadership (for further clarification/interpretation of gathered information).
  • Assessment of gathered information, including (but not necessarily limited to):
    • Internal systems, strategies & structures;
    • Defined vision, mission & goals;
    • Volunteer recruiting, training & nurture practices;
    • Volunteer screening, training & nurture policies;
    • General policies & procedures;
    • Program development & effectiveness;
    • Parent equipping plans, strategies & implementation;
    • Children’s spiritual formation & discipleship strategies & implementation;
    • Printed & online promotional materials;
    • Other areas specific to the Children’s Ministry at your church.
  • 360 Feedback via:
    • A complete Assessment Report on the current state of your Children’s Ministry;
    • A comprehensive Recommended Action Plan to assist in immediately applying the results of your evaluation;
    • A 45 – 90 minute on-site/phone/Skype
    • Follow-up Consultation to discuss the results of your evaluation, as well as to review the
    • Assessment Report and Recommended Action Plan.

Phase Two (Strategic Consulting): Collaboration  3 months of consulting, coaching & support for continued navigation toward desired initiatives & outcomes.


  • Ministry Design
    • Based on findings from the Children’s Ministry Check Up, we will assist in designing a plan for ministry growth and navigation through impending changes. We will collaborate to address all elements of change and how best to pursue them.
  • Consulting Conversations
    • Three (3) scheduled conversations to evaluate, discuss and consult with Senior Leadership and/or Children’s Ministry Staff regarding any element of children’s ministry, but specifically targeting the pursuit of agreed upon initiatives resulting from the Children’s Ministry Check Up

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.’”
