Healthy Ministry Zone

The greatest threat to a kidmin leader's spiritual healthy, can be ministry itself. We go into children's ministry because of a Calling to reach and teach kids for Jesus. But soon we can find ourselves buried in administration, recruiting, policy-writing, event planning, budget management, program running and so much more. Our walk with God and the health of our family and other key relationships can suffer. This Zone is dedicated to resources to help you keep healthy spiritually as you serve the Lord!
