What would happen if children’s pastors got to make the rules? Maybe this…

If Children's Pastors ruled

  • The church water fountain would dispense Kool Aid.
  • All worship songs would have motions.
  • The adult service would have a flashing light signaling when children’s church was out so the pastor could dismiss the adults.
  • Children’s Pastors would be well paid and Senior Pastors would get a cracker and juice allowance.
  • Nursery duty would be mandatory for all choir members.
  • Ushers would pass out animal crackers.
  • Puppets would staff the church welcome center.
  • People being baptized would be allowed to splash.
  • Greeters would wear full body costumes and do balloon sculpting.
  • Every Sunday you could poke your head into the adult service and bark out, “Keep it quiet!” and they would obey.
  • Church staff meetings would be held at Chuck E. Cheese.
  • It would be considered harmless fun to wear cowboy gear and blast holes into the church grand piano while yelling “yee haw.”
  • Adults would raise their hands during the sermon and ask the Senior Pastor for permission to go to the bathroom.
  • Church boards could only say one phrase: “Go ahead, we don’t care how much it costs.”
  • The Senior Pastor would get permission from the Children’s Pastor before adding any new worship services or scheduling any special events.
  • The church tithes would go to the children’s department first. Any money left over would be dispensed in small increments to the general fund.
  • When people got saved in the adult service the Senior Pastor would fire off a confetti cannon.
  • The adult service would have to use the sound system with the high-pitched hum.
  • Children’s workers that didn’t show up would be fined. At the end of the year you could use the money to go to the Bahamas while they ran VBS for you.
