Last week, we started our holiday series here on Kidmin1124 exploring some of the lessons we can learn from the man up north. The first lesson was “Making Lists and Checking Them Twice,” but that’s not all he has to offer. A second critical lesson we can learn from jolly old St. Nick is:
YOU CAN’T DO IT ALONE!
Can you imagine Santa trying to check the lists, make the toys, and deliver the toys all by himself? Not hardly as he has a team of elves to help him with everything.
We should do the same in Children’s Ministry. We need to build a team of people working together to make each weekend experience the best it can possibly be. We need to be able to ask for help and actually empower our team to do what they are gifted to do.
Do you have a hard time asking others on your team for help? What does delegation look like for you in your ministry? What are you doing today that you need to find someone to delegate to? What are the things that only you can do? Are you focusing your time on those efforts?
