Puts it everywhere, lets it make a mess of the way things were and doesn’t care much if it gets stuck in the carpet. Her hope for you is that you keep finding it all over the place for days—that you can’t get away from it. And just when you thought you had it all cleaned up, she prays that there is a sparkle that catches your eye and reminds you that God made you, God’s plan is for you and that Jesus is the only way to truly know your identity. Your sparkle comes from knowing Christ alone.

Gospel Fluency

It is time to celebrate the stories of the ones who struggle to find themselves understanding the “need” for Jesus in an amplified world, and the answered prayers of disciples who relentlessly pursue children for the sake of the gospel. For the kid being raised in a culture that hyperbolizes daily encounters, it is time we reclaim the simplicity of the gospel so that those being protected and prayed into the Kingdom might know Jesus for exactly who he is: loving, good and complete salvation no matter the story of your first encounter with him. This is gospel fluency for today’s kids, no matter their story.

Sheep herding 101

What did Jesus mean when he referred to us as sheep anyway? And what did his audience know about sheep and shepherding that we just don’t fully understand? We know that Jesus was both the Good Shepherd and the Lamb of God, but what does this mean for us? In a world where a kid can be anything, why choose to be a follower in a herd? Together we will unpack intentional discipleship, and shepherding, for kids, no matter their fit in the flock.

Intentional Leadership

What are the differences between a disciple, a leader and a mentor? How we disciple this generation to be the leaders of the next requires intentional leadership in the middle. What if we intentionally did for someone else what Jesus modelled in relationship with his disciples? What does it look like to engage in intentional discipleship today, in a world of independence, self-reliance and Google? What does it mean to authentically make the way smoother for someone else and give leadership away? Learn the point, purpose and privilege of mentorship as you lead, disciple and are discipled.

Seasons of leadership

As a leader, are you giving yourself permission to go through the cycle of seasons? Have you considered what it means to be in the “winter” of ministry without also burning out or considering it a shortcoming? Have you found a way to give your voice rest, or is it time to for your voice to flourish? Consider the rhythms of your ministry and how you can leverage the seasons of role development, the calendar and your own personal discipleship to be ready and obedient to serve in your calling as you are called through thaw, ground-break, growth, and frost.

Teams that breathe mission, vision, and value

Getting your team(s) on the same page is about more than making them understand their role. They may know what is required and have what they need to be successful, but do they know the why? Beyond understanding the mission, vision and values, this breakout will equip leaders to invite their team into the heart of ministry so that they can last longer and go further, together. When we all understand why we have set out on mission, we can do so in unity and in one direction. Learn the biblical foundations for vision-casting for unity!

Serving Today's Parents

When we look at how to train up our leaders of our littlest ones (nursery-preschool), we need to be ever mindful of who their parents are. Almost all babies and little ones entering our churches are kids of millennials. This misunderstood and often criticized generation not only needs a second look, but could be a power house of volunteer resources if their passion for parenting was leveraged for kingdom purpose.
