Children’s Ministry Recruiting Board: Want to Get Involved?

Children’s Ministry Recruiting Board: Want to Get Involved?

When you recruit someone to the Children’s Ministry team, what are you recruiting them to?  If you had to summarize what your ministry was all about in a quick 30 second elevator pitch, would you be able to do it?

That’s the task we were faced with during our recent Ministry Fair.  For this event, each major ministry in the church got a table to display facts about their ministry as well as any literature that might help a newcomer get involved. (Check out the signs I made for the event).

Want to join the Kidmin Team?

I had just acquired a Cricut a week before the big event, so I decided to test it out a bit on my display sign.  One of the essentials to my display was the church’s vision as a whole:

What We’re All About

Another essential was to clear show potential volunteers the process for becoming involved:

Getting Involved: What's the Process?

What Am I Getting Myself Into?

I made it clear that we need volunteers for our regularly weekly programs as well as our special seasonal events:

A Season for Everything in Children's Ministry

 What Kind of Commitment Is This?

And of course, I wanted to highlight all the fun and excitement our volunteers will experience!
