How do you as a ministry leader transition from you doing the ministry to leading a team that does the ministry?
It’s hard because we go into ministry because we like doing the ministry.
But if things are to grow, we need to step back and empower and encourage others in these roles.
This is true in kids ministry, but it’s true across the church.
I think this is one of the major factors that is hampering the growth of our churches.
We are talking this Tuesday with Sandy Galea, from MBM Rooty Hill in Sydney’s West and Kidswise about how to grow ministry teams.
Sandy’s particular focus is on growing children’s ministry teams. She now leads a ministry involving one hundred leaders across two campuses.
I am hoping this discussion will be most helpful for those of us who are senior pastors, but also for the whole ministry team, including and especially kids and youth pastors.
