Some people in your church view children’s ministry as a black hole.
They don’t know exactly what it is, but they fear if they get too close it will suck them in never to be seen again.
Make sure people know that your children’s ministry has a back door.
This relieves their fear of getting stuck.
They don’t want to let you down by deserting you if they find kidmin doesn’t work for them.
Here are 2 simple ideas.
1. Enlist people for a specific period of time. 3 months-6 months works well.
2. Schedule a 6 week review time in which they can opt out. Tell them this ahead of time.
