Jan Workman - Children's Ministry

I think it's really cool how Jan all of the sudden began to just play with the church kids during services and eventually grew into being the Children's Pastor. She didn't come in and apply with Children's Ministry credentials...God used her where she was at.

"It is irresistible to an unsaved parent to see their child get saved." - That really is mind-blowing when you think about it. Where kids are, their parents will be.

Jan asked the question, "What do you do when you're done with an outreach? How do you follow up?" - That's a great question...for any age level of ministry: kids, youth, or adults that I think so many churches do so poorly. We pray for people to come through our doors, but yet so much we skip what needs be done after they come through those doors.

I think it's really cool how Jan measures a win as spiritual growth and not necessarily a milestone such as spirit baptism and even salvation.

She stresses the importance of relevance in society and the importance of using the internet.

Jan also stresses assimilation and that every staff member at her church is a part of it. I think that is key and that it should not be just for one person to be assigned to.
