There is a brand new resource that you need to order today, if you haven’t already.
Children’s ministry pioneer, Jim Wideman, has released Kidmin Leadership. This book is unique because it is filled with leadership lessons for children’s ministers written by children’s ministers, based on what was learned in two years of mentoring with Jim.
I was privileged to be a part of this awesome group and contribute a couple of chapters. Here is why I think you will like it:
~ It’s very practical. This isn’t pie-in-the-sky philosophy. It is stuff that can impact your leadership right now. It deals with the same topics you deal with: caring for volunteers, dealing with tough times, priorities, discipline.
~ It is filled with God’s Word. Nothing we say matters, but God’s Word never fades. The principles are based off of Scripture.
~ It’s written by people just like you. At the time of the writing, we all were serving in local churches of varying sizes and denominations and locations. We all deal with volunteers who don’t show up and parents who make us nutty.
~ It was filtered through Jim’s leadership and training. I’m a little biased, but I think Jim is the best of the best. He has served in the local church for several decades and has helped shaped children’s ministry. His wisdom about kidmin is invaluable.
So, I highly suggest you add KidMin Leadership to your bookshelf. You can order it at jimwideman.com or from Amazon.
