Taking the Boo! Out of KidMin


What scares you the most in children's ministry? Not being effective? Losing your job? Offending people? Making the wrong choice? One of my biggest fears is no longer being relevant–and not realizing it.

The good thing is that our fears can give us an edge. They can make us hungry, teachable, and more sensitive.

But they're also something that's not from God. He doesn't want us to be fearful and driven by our insecurities. Instead, he wants us to trust him, to lean on him, to acknowledge that without him we can do nothing.

So how do we take the Boo! out of KidMin? We simply give our fears over to God–day in and day out. There's no trick in that, but there's definitely a great treat in the peace and the confidence that results from handing it over!
