Kids Ministry Collective #5 Lead Up & Down

Monday, April 18th, 2016 Uncategorized | Comments


Panel- Dave Truitt, Sarah Bundy, Tom Bump

What are you working on now?

Just did another school assembly.  Now trying to work ahead so my trip to Atlanta (Orange) is smooth.  Always tough when any conference is the week before the start of a new month.

Sarah - Pating, getting new facelift on ministry areas.

Tom - Family VBS

Today we are talking about the ways we can lead and how to keep growing as a leader:

One of the things many in Kidmin struggle with is leading when you’re not THE leader, So what have you found to help you lead, share vision, etc with the larger church body?

Stories, Stories, Stories.  Stories of what the goal is, stories of how you are getting there.  Stories help paint a picture.  Make it your own.  Not something that another church does.

Relationships- Going to various church events, Make yourself available to others.

Take opportunity with everyone to share your vision.

Be visible

Be available

Be willing to serve outside Kidmin

Serve you senior leaders

Tom - serve in other ministries.  Help others..  

What can a leader do to encourage their senior Leader?

Be their biggest supporter.  Whatever is their dream, you need to be on board with and make it your dream too.  How can you help them with their wins.  Staff meetings - join in and don’t drift off when Sr. Leader is spending time talking about the “adult” service.

Sarah - Share what’s going on in your area. Share the wins, etc.   Share funny stories too.

Tom- Never leave them guessing, Keep them informed, Have their back, Pray for them regularly.  Keep the negative talk to yourself.

What can one do when the senior leader isn’t on the same page?

Protect Unity! No silos!  Don’t build walls up.

Pray.  Have honest conversations.   Share your vision.  Is it a Tension to be wrestled with or is it a problem that needs to be solved?  

Does the vision God has given you fit what God has given your leader?  Are they close, or on different paths.  The two of you might be great people, but might be MAC and PC.  Close, but not always compatible.

Have the conversation- be adults! Don’t let them slip past- keep a short list. Approach them in a positive way.

Knowing what you value as a church..  

RESOURCE: Jim Wideman Stay or Go?

What can Guys do to improve the working relationship with female Staff?

Communication- Take time to listen, don’t just jump in with an answer. Don’t jump into Fix-it mode! Listen first.

How do we develop volunteers to be Leaders?

Get over the Lone Ranger mentality. Empower them and let go of something. They can do things better than you in some settings.

Train them, take them to conferences, spend time with them teaching them to lead.  If they can do something 80% as you can, let them go with it.

ASK!!!  Set High Expectations.  Give them some wins.  Give them opportunities to actually LEAD, not just accomplishing tasks.  Being willing to LET GO!  Tough to do for some of us.

Have a plan- set up a way for them to develop their skills- Give them stepping stones to walk on.  

Give ministry away.

How do we develop Kids as Leaders?

Give them leadership opportunities!  Pull them up front.  Give them responsibilities.  Sound.  

Same as adults- develop a step by step plan to develop them, create some milestones for them to achieve and earn greater responsibility.

John Maxwell said, Leadership is “being” before “doing”

Develop the kids to lead an area of service,

Help them be role models
