The best Sunday School and Children’s Ministry teachers are able to build life long relationships with the kids in their ministry. This makes the teaching much more powerful and the experience more rewarding for the teachers.
How you relate to the children you teach will always affect how they receive the Bible lessons you teach. The old cliche is true – they don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
So, I want to point out a practical resource that can help you build relationships with the children in your ministry. Wayne Stocks has written a great post on this topic titled 30 Ways to Get Connected with Your Kids.
This is a resource you should print off and share with volunteers in your ministry too. Every item on his list is practical and worth the effort.
