Beat The Summer Slump in Kids & Student Ministry

photo: dreamstimefree_775257 RF-LL
Summer time is here and in ministry these couple of months can be a time to rest from a busy season in ministry. This is not the case if you are in Kids or Student Ministry, as a matter of fact, the summer months can be some of your busiest times in ministry. The kids are out of school, which means the ministries that serve them get geared up to create a memorable summer.

It is also the time of year that juggling the volunteer schedule becomes a three ring circus. People in, people out, trading classrooms, last minute trips and sometimes they just need a break.  The kids and students still come every weekend but there are some weekends that leave you wondering if anyone show up to serve them.

Schedules, volunteers, supplies, curriculum, planning, events, VBS, camp, parent meetings, salvation weekends and trainings happen fifty two times a year. No weekend is ever the same and every weekend has the chance for complete chaos. When the summer comes most ministry leaders have experienced the highs and lows of an intense ministry season and because of it some just need a break.

What happens though when you get to the beginning of summer and you are already worn out from the rest of the ministry season?
