If you spend any length of time volunteering in children’s ministry, transition is inevitable. That might mean a new Children’s Pastor, a new curriculum, new volunteers, implementing new rules, or a new position. When these things happen, there is a transition period moving from the previous to the next. This time of transition will be what you make it. Most people are resistant to change, but in children’s ministry we have to keep moving forward which means that change will happen.
Here are a few ways to make your transition time easier:
talk about it
give it time
The way I am dealing with my time of transition right now is looking forward to what the future will bring in our children’s ministry due to these changes. Envisioning how they will impact our team, our kids, and our families for God’s glory.
