Does God Call People to Children’s Ministry? (Children’s Ministry Think Tank)


The latest Children’s Ministry Think Tank was published yesterday over at I contributed my thoughts to the question again this installment, and I must say, I am honored to be amongst the contributors this month which include Gina McClain, Sam Luce, Kenny Conley and Brenna Phillips. In fact, I am pretty sure that if someone did a “which one of these doesn’t belong” on this particular Think Tank, I would definitely be the answer!

The question for this installment was:

“How do you understand God’s calling to children’s ministry in your own life? How would you counsel a young person who is exploring this children’s ministry as a vocation? What do you make of Kids Pastors who move on to other positions in the church such as executive or senior pastor?”

Where do you fall on this issue? Were you called to Children’s Ministry? What is your story? What do you think about those who use Children’s Ministry as a steeping stone to other ministry positions?
