I am getting so excited about camp! Right now we are taking about 94 kids to camp and that number is rising daily. We leave in a little over a week and we are doing our own kids camp for the first time. It is going to be fun. We are partnering the church of a good friend of mine, he is also bringing about 100 kids. It is going to be so much fun.
I already have a great team going with us, all that is left is getting all the paperwork together.
I wanted to make everyone who may be interested aware of a great new ministry resource: The CMA Forum It is a great way for kids pastors to connect with others from around the country. Great job CMA team.
It has been a while since I have posted, but things have been crazy busy. In kids ministry, I think summer time can be the most productive/least productive time of the year. It can provide some great relational times: Camp, Day Camp, and other great events. But at the same time, there is an overwhelming amount of preparation time that goes into these events, and the best part of it all is that the normal "ministry stuff" does not stop just because you are preparing for summer activities.
I am excited though, we are about to hire an Administrative assistant to help us move forward in ministry. I think this new position will help me find ways to be more productive and be even more relational with the team I lead and the kids of Hope.
