It’s been a few years, but I still remember the first time I read this encouraging poem about children’s ministry. It came in an email to me from a friend. It really spoke to me about the struggles and joys of being a kids pastor.

Later I learned that poem was written by Roger Fields of Kidz Blitz ministries. It’s been available on their website for some time, but he recently uploaded a print-friendly version of the poem.

This is an excellent way to encourage volunteers and leaders in your ministry. All of us who serve God’s Children share this same experience. I’d love to hear how you use this resource in your ministry. Click here to leave a comment.

    My ministry is in the country of Jamaica and I really appreciate this website in general as it makes my job so much easier. The poem is such a blessing. Keep up the good work. God’s richest blessing on you, your family, your staff and ministry partners.

    What a great message. I have been involved in children’s ministry for 50 years as a Sunday School and Religious Instruction teacher. I admire those who go overseas to tell people about Jesus but I have a mission here to reach the children in my local community for Jesus. I was told recently by a 2nd grader that my gift was telling children about Jesus. What a gift!!!
    Once again thank you for the poem

    Thank you so much for what you have done for me! I’ve searched for a year trying to find free lessons for the children in my church. We don’t have a lot of money to spend on supplies (we are a small church) and I just finished a year as youth director. I did the best I could, but failed miserably. Today is January 1, 2012, and I went to the computer, typed in children’s church lesson plans, and lo and behold…I got your lessons! I am so excited! We’ll start next week with the lessons about creation! May God bless you for your saving me this year!

    You are always an inspiration. May God continually renew your strength. You and yours are blessed and highly favoured. Our loving Father has your wife close to His tender heart, He will see her (and you) through it all. He is trustworthy. God bless you

    This is wonderful, thank you. I am a Sunday School Superintendent, my 2nd year and how inspiring this poem is to me. I will give a copy to my teachers as I know it will inspire them also.
