Kidmin1124 Volunteer Champion of the Week Needs YOUR Help

imageWelcome back to the Volunteer Champion of the Week. I was hoping that this day wouldn’t come, but here it is. I am sad to announce that there is no Volunteer Champion of the Week this week because of a lack of nominations.  There are thousands and thousands of volunteers who turn out each weekend and selflessly serve children in churches around the globe. They do not do what they do for recognition or accolades, but at Kidmin1124 we would like to shine a light on some of these volunteers as a way to say “Thank You!” In order to do this though – we need your help.  We need Children’s Pastors, Children’s Ministry Directors, Lead Pastors, Husbands, Wives, Friends and other Volunteers to nominate people for the award.

Here’s how it works.  If you know someone who you think is deserving of this awards, you simply send me an e-mail at including the person’s name, e-mail address and a brief description of what they do in kidmin.  If they are selected, I will send them a document which explains what the award is and asks them to answer some questions.  The questions fall into two categories:

  1. Basic Information about the recipient
  2. Questions designed to glean some of their wisdom and insights from working in children’s ministry.

It really is a win-win.  Your volunteer gets some recognition and encouragement and we all benefit from their their insights, wisdom and experience.  To get a better idea of how it works, check out some of our prior recipients then send me an e-mail to with the names of your volunteers who you would like to recognize. You can also help by passing this along to other children’s pastors, etc. who might want to nominate their volunteers.  Thanks you in advance for your help!
