Continuity . . .

Continuity . . . what is it? What does it look like in children's ministry? How do we have it? How do we know if we do not have it? These are important questions to think about . . . and find answers to. This week I'll be talking about continuity, for today . . . consider the following . . . 

  • do you know what the vision/purpose is for your children's ministry?
  • do you know what the vision/purpose is for your parent ministry?
  • do you know what the vision/purpose is for your family ministry?
  • do you have continuity between the different areas of your children's ministry?
  • do you have continuity between your children's, parent's and family ministries?
If you do not know your vision/purpose for your children's, parent's and family ministry, how can you move forward in any of these areas? You have to know what you want to accomplish if you are going to accomplish anything. If you do not know your vision/purpose for your children's, parent's and family ministry, how can you have any continuity? What are you doing in each area of your children's ministry, your parent's ministry and your family ministry? Do each of these areas have their own vision/purpose specific to each area, but still connect? They are separate areas of ministry, but if we are going to be genuinely effective in each, do they not have to have a continuity? What do you do to connect each of these ministries? They cannot just be "islands unto themselves". They have to connect. How do you connect them? I'll talk about this tomorrow.
