Show Notes:

What trends do you see in Kidmin and Family Ministry?

Greater sense of unity in the church and outside the church (churches working together more)

Uses of technology- the greater need for leaders understanding how to use social media and the best ways to leverage it to connect with the community and parents. 

More Tribe conversation and more tribes having conversations with each other. 

Using FB ads, email marketing

What are leaders doing well to develop leaders and their ministry?

More intentional about relational discipleship. 

Small groups are better at building those relationships and are taking kids and students deeper.

Better networking is being done now than before.

As far as developing leaders:

*Define what leadership looks like- coaching structures and leveraging part-time staff.

*Better alignment among ministries.

*Better training for volunteers.

*More intentional with creating healthier volunteer cultures.

What can leaders in smaller ministries do to develop leaders (principles still apply to larger churches as well.)

*Be clear with your roles- You must use job descriptions, put it on paper!

*Be Patient- it takes time to develop leaders and you must figure out a stepping up  process to help them take next steps in responsibility and ownership. 

*Be Encouraging- You need to be their champion and let them know it. Be intentional about your encouragement with cards, texts, and phone calls. Let them know how you see them growing and developing as a leader.

**Leadership creates space for others to lead** (Tweet This!) 

*You should ask, who can step into my role now and how can I help them become a better leader? start a process now to move them forward.

Invest time and resources into them. - conferences, books, podcasts. 

Create a team and teach them leadership principles.

Minstryboost.org is set up to help leaders no matter what size church grow their influence and leadership level. They offer many types of training and are also parting with You-Lead Coaching from Re-Think Group
