There are no shortage of haters out there when it comes to reward systems and rewards models for kids churches. But for the past 7 years we have used a rewards system at our church called BibleBucks 2.0. It has been an amazing tool for us.
When do reward systems go bad?
- When they become the goal of what you do rather than a part of what you do.
- When we reward the wrong things.
- When we use rewards to supplement our lack of preparation.
- When we allow the teachers in the rooms to change what we reward weekly.
