Ministry Management Video Series

Leadership is the process of identifying goals and determining resources. But management is what gets it done.

Management is the process of accomplishing an organizations goals while dealing with resource restraints.

If that doesn't sound like children's ministry, I don't know what would!

There is much said about leadership – and leadership is key – but management is where the work lies. Leadership is lofty, while management gets dirty. Leadership is white collar. Management is blue collar. But we all know blue collar is where the real work happens. In children’s ministry, you have to be both a leader and a manager. If you are only a manager, your ministry will not advance or grow. But if you are only a leader, you’ll never get anything done and great vision and lofty goals will never become reality. Successful children’s ministry directors know how to shift between leading and managing their ministry.

In this series, Pastor Karl shares Kidmin Management Skills he has learned over decades of leading children's ministries from mobile church ministry, to large churches. These videos are packed with PRACTICAL tips and advice to help you successfully manage the ministry God has entrusted you with.
