My 3 favorite resources shared by other children's ministries
If you haven't seen it yet, we have an incredible new Shared Resource platform on our new website!
What is it?
It's a place where KidMin leaders like yourself can share helpful resources with one another. It's sort of like a "give a penny, take a penny" tray, but with children's ministry documents. Want to see what I'm talking about?
Here are 3 of my favorite docs...
(READ BELOW TO SEE HOW TO GET THEM.)
1. VBS Volunteer Handbook
Don't be fooled by the branding.
This is an original creation from the
team at Florence Baptist Church.
Volunteer job descriptions
Rotation leader expectations
Follow up communications
and MUCH MORE!
It's a GOLDMINE of info whether you're
new to VBS or a veteran looking to see
how other leaders roll.
2. Guide to Salvation
This step-by-step guide to salvation from Compass Kids is an awesome
little resource that lays out the gospel
of Jesus in a way that is simple to
understand for elementary-age kids.
Using both kid friendly language
and illustrations, it walks them through...
God's design for people
The problem of sin
The solution through the cross
and the choice we have
It also includes a sample salvation prayer.
If you're looking to create your own,
this is a great place to start!
3. Large Group Teacher Training
If you're looking to help your teacher's
improve their communication skills,
then this is the doc for you!
This is nothing short of a masters class
in public speaking! It covers:
Authenticity and Transparency
Knowing your Audience
Preparation and Memorization
Blocking and Movement
Using your Voice
Strategizing a "Moment"
This document also includes a handout
in case you want to teach this as a class.
Business leaders pay BIG $$$ for this level of class!
AND SO MUCH MORE...
We currently have over 100 documents and the number is growing every day! Here are the kind of documents you'll find in the Shared Resources area:
Children’s Ministry handbook
Volunteer job descriptions
Children’s Ministry staff job descriptions
Social media policy/covenants
Safety and Wellness
Baptism and Child Dedication
Registration and Admin
Here's how to access ALL of those Shared Resources...
Step 2: On the Account Dashboard, click on the "Shared Resources" tab.
Step 3: To get into the Shared Resources area, you'll need a password. How do you get it? Simple...
Follow the instructions to share one or more documents with us that you think would be helpful to the KidMin community, then we'll automatically send you the password. By doing this, the number of resources available will grow bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER!
(Don't worry if you don't think you have anything "Top 3" worthy! Just share what you think would be most helpful to other KidMin leaders.)
