I love:

  1. Making Bible stories come to life for kids by using object lessons, wacky illustrations, and other fun stuff!

  2. Getting to work with volunteers who are passionate about seeing kids grow in their faith!

  3. How the creativity demands of children’s ministry stretch my mind and cause me to use my imagination.

  4. Getting high-fives instead of handshakes on Sunday mornings.

  5. Witnessing the moment that a child repents and trusts Jesus.

  6. Being able to partner with parents to have a lasting impact on a child’s spiritual growth.

  7. Having an excuse to play games at church.

  8. Connecting with the most awesome ministry leaders in the world!

  9. Hearing the worshipful singing of children fill halls and classrooms.

  10. Being able to serve God in the most fun way possible!

Children’s ministry is the greatest “job” in the world!
