Is your children’s ministry successful? Are you sure? Do you really know for sure how your Children’s Ministry impacts the children and families in your church and community? How do you know?
If we want our ministries to be genuinely effective and successful, we need to regularly ask questions to help measure where we really are and how effective we truly are. If we do not regularly ask the “hard” questions of everything we do, there isn’t a way for us to truly tell how effective we are. Consider the following questions and if you are, or should be, asking them –
Questions for the Parents and Grandparents –
Questions for the Volunteers –
Questions for Church Leaders –
Well, these are just a few questions to get you thinking, but whether you ask these questions, or completely different questions, be sure you are talking to children, parents, grandparents, volunteers, and church leaders and are asking questions each month, or at least once a quarter. Keep track of the answers and if the answers do not show you are realizing your vision/purpose, then take a serious look at what you are doing to find where things are “breaking down” and take the steps necessary for your ministry to be effective and successful.
