We had a kids ministry volunteer training last night. My goal was to introduce some rallying points around some core values we wanted to introduce. But our paid staff had already come up with our "core values" so I wanted to give the volunteers a chance to own and create them too. So to set the stage, we did a brainstorming activity and it ended up being fun an very encouraging. So I thought I'd share it with you. If you're a youth pastor or a small group leader or teacher... it might work in some context for you too.
Here's what we did. First, we brainstormed 2 questions:
- What do you love about kids ministry?
- What are the needs kids have at JCC on the weekend?
