the picture doesn’t even begin to tell the story

nashville area kidmin christmas gathering.

nashville area kidmin christmas gathering.

because how would you guess that this picture represents a network of about 120 members… these are kid ministers from all over the nashville area.

we have a group that was started about a year and a half ago… give or take. and we meet monthly to encourage each other, get new ideas and basically to remind ourselves that we are all on the same team. we are all teaching the truth of Jesus Christ to the kids in our care. we are not in competition. we are not jealous or envious. we are fully supportive of one another’s efforts. and we are blessed.

i don’t know of other cities that have similar communities, but they should!

it’s so good to drive past a church that isn’t yours and feel connected to it, because you know the person there that is doing your same job. it is great to know that the kids we aren’t reaching have other people nearby to tell them the gospel.

i love this group of people. this year at christmas we painted ornaments, then wrote the name of our church on the back. each person picked a different ornament than their own, and commited to pray for that church for the next year (or indefinitely). so, i pray for Rolling Hills Baptist Church, i got their ornament. i posted a question to ask who had been praying and within 4 minutes, 3 people have already responded with the name of the church they are praying for.

that’s what it’s all about friends. working together for the good of the gospel. holding each other up in prayer.

i love it. that’s worthy networking.

  1. We have the same blessing here in CO and you’re right – it truly is wonderful to be connected rather than in competition. Mike has similarly led an organization of youth pastors for over a decade, and now as lead pastor meets regularly with other pastors across the Front Range for mutual encouragement, fellowship and prayer. We so agree with you and we wish all of the Kingdom would allow themselves to be benefited, influenced, and encouraged by one another along the journey. – Diana
    P.S. – I have thoroughly enjoyed following your blog and love, LOVE what you are doing!!!

    • of course he does… mike’s always been such a great and godly leader, even in high school. i love that y’all have that too, i’m sure it’s helpful all the time.
