  1. I pray for them….
    I try to keep regular communication lines open as the Sunday Youth Co-ordinator, through emails to maintain up-to-date news and events.
    I encourage team meetings once a term for open discussion which strengthens my identity and security and highlights areas of weakness in my life as a team leader. It gives the staff an opportunity to experience freedom to be open and honest and to feel accepted with no condemnation.
    I affirm my staff regularly, ie thank them personally for their giftings and their love for the children, and through church online pastoral news.
    I encourage ‘unity’ by sharing the Communion with them as they teach, at the same time as the rest of the church is receiving the emblems. I believe it’s an opportunity for the children (0-11s especially) to witness this and come under the spiritual atmosphere as they learn and observe. We are just trialling a 10-15 minute slot before the service begins for the staff to share Communion with our Minister in a more intimate setting, again to develop a sense of togetherness within the Ministry…
    I don’t expect thanks in return….but it is very gratefully received when it happens!!
    When they step down from a role to move on I believe it’s right to honour them before the church…thanking God for His provision and for their servanthood…..
