How about that title? I know it’s moderately shocking and immediately takes you to a negative place. Sorry for that, but I’d really like to address the five dangerous places I’ve seen Children’s Pastors go. I’ve only been doing Children’s Ministry for a little over six years, so in many respects I’m a #kidmin newbie. In my 6 years of working with other Children’s Pastors I’ve noticed 5 distinct negative directions and roles that Children’s Pastors take on, and I’m going to throw some hate on all 5 of them!
It is not my intention to be negative, but to share 5 roles we should avoid. They are 5 traps that I work hard to avoid falling into and 5 warning signs for myself. If I begin to describe you, then consider it a warning.
And by the way…I love you.
