Episode Notes

Transferrable principles for churches of all sizes:
  • Rely on kids/youth to be involved in ministry
    • Allow teenagers to lead in kids ministry
    • Create unique teams for young people to serve within and have ownership
    • “You will keep the ones you involve”
  • Creativity always trumps budget
    • Creativity matters no matter what size church you lead in
    • Incorporate music into everything
    • Use lots of visuals
Church Plant:
  • Ask the question “Why would they want to come back into the church?”
  • Same applicable principle: “You will keep the ones you involve”

Children's Ministry Online (with a church plant):

  • Amped up online presence
  • Recording LIVE to post online later
  • The Both/And (in-person and online)
    • Don't exclude either group
    • Consider those you currently serve (sick, elderly, unable to gather, etc.)
