When I left my last ministry I was asked what the church could do to help my replacement - I told them the first thing they should do is purchase a Group Membership to Kidology - I had bought my own professional membership and was taking it with me! I was mentored by Karl even though I'd never met him, this site made me an awesome children's pastor. It's the best investment you can make in a new children's pastor!

I'm going to commit to this as much as I can. Even if I can't give all my responsibilities away, I am going to make sure I am ready two weeks out so that I do not have to do any work that week, even if I still have to teach. Since I have a full time job outside of ministry, I am only going to be able to dedicate the time I normally spend on church work.
I'm planning to do this Oct.8-14.
