Behind the Scenes: Children’s Ministry Magazine, March/April 2016
Teaching the Bible in fun, exciting and engaging ways is a challenge that every children’s ministry leader faces. Some weeks come together really well; other weeks not so much.
If you’re like me, you scour the internet (thank you, Pinterest!) for ideas and inspiration to help you knock the story out of the park each week. Then you pray and ask the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who’ll hear.
One of the dilemmas of a large group leader or teacher is to effectively teach the Bible to children who are familiar with the Bible AND kids who’ve never heard the stories before. How can you capture the attention of fresh ears while engaging kids who are familiar?
This was the inspiration behind my “Old Messages, New Truths”, my elementary column topic in the March/April 2016 issue of Children’s Ministry Magazine. In the column, I share 5 tips on how to do this. (You can find the tips on page 30.)
