Every so often I will lurk outside Kidology.org. I like the Kidologist himself, Karl Bastian for all the fun he is made of and also kids ministry we can learn from him.
Well, today I was lurking (If you don’t want to be a lurker, being a member maybe worth it) and saw the poll on the front page which ask “How often do you serve in children’s ministry?” I selected my answer, submitted it and boy was I shocked by the outcome…
Why! so many people serves most weeks! 70% of the 1,500 who responded so far serves most weeks!!
Shocked because I was expecting more ‘once a month’ or ‘once every fortnight’ type of deal.
The result made me both happy and sad!
1) Happy that we aren’t the only ones with the commitment of serving most weeks.
2) Sad that the outcome may be because kids ministries are lacking vision, leadership and resource that those in it have no choice but serve most weeks.
What do you think? How often do you serve and why?
