I bought the tape of Karl's class ("Help, I'm in Charge of the Children's Ministry") and we (John and I) have both listened to it twice and have given it to our senior pastor. It will be a "classic" soon. Thanks for giving so much of yourself! WE APPRECIATE YOU!

Ministry can get ho-hum and mundane, and it loses it's excitement and energy, not only for you - but for those you serve. The secret to breathing fresh life back into your ministry, is to do the UNEXPECTED! Plan some S.U.R.P.R.I.S.E. into your ministry!

S = Take a look at your Surroundings

U = Do something Unforgettable!

R = Do something Real!

P = Involve new People

R = Take a look at the use/look of your Rooms

I = Invest in your ministry

S = Shock people by Serving them!

E = Think about the Equipment you are employing. ("Old" is the new "New!")
