My Top Failures As A Children’s Pastor

In over 30 years of Children’s Ministry, I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I don’t have any regrets, but I I certainly have learned a lot of lessons along the way. After reflecting on the last 30 years, I wanted to share some things I would do differently along the way. Maybe it will be helpful […]
