It’s time to start planning children’s ministry for the school year. Most church calendars go September to August, so I’ll spend the next couple of weeks giving you helpful planning advise.
Project Management is an essential tool for children’s pastors. Children’s ministry is filled with huge projects that can’t be done effectively without project management. Some projects include Christmas and Easter programs, discipleship programs, holiday events such as a Halleluia Costume Carnival, Easter Egg Hunt and Back to School Bash, summer outreach, missions projects, choir, drama – the list goes on to infinity.
