Join Host Tom Bump @ptbump, and Jason Tilley (jason@ministryaccelerator) as they discuss a possible reason to shift our focus from all on Sunday to a weekly partnership with parents. 

What can a solo leader do to not only disciple kids on Sunday, but how do we and why should we consider changing our focus and time spent on the weekend?

Sometimes we make ourselves bigger than we should so that others will notice us or follow us. When we look at Scripture we see that this is not a godly behavior, yet in ministry we see it happen all the time. I have been guilty of it too. I was challenged to consider several principles that I share with you in this deeply personal episode. Thanks for listening! Please leave a review on iTunes to help others in ministry!! Thanks!!
