Key Thoughts –
The bigger your church gets the more important it is that you become a problem solver.
Sometimes knowing what NOT to do is as important as what to do.
Anytime you delagate without duplication you get weirdness.
My Thoughts –
I am a huge believer in learning from every stage and every generation. I can learn something from a 20 year old kid who just became a kids pastor and can most definately can learn from a man who has done crazy cool things in the last 30 years of ministry.
I chose these three statements because they spoke to me where I am at and where my church is at.
1. We are growing I need to be a better more efficent problem solver.
2. My time is more limited than before and I have been doing kids ministry for quite a while so I need to know what not to do more often than I need to know what to do.
3. I need to turn the switch from delegation to duplication because I hate weirdness.
One thing I love about Brother Jim is he is a master at using his experience and the Word of God. We need both!
This was a great breakout because you have to be a kids pastor for oh lets say…….five minutes before you need to learn to solve your first problem.
