The 12th Man

12th Man

In the game of American football (I realize I just lost 85% of you), there is a phenomenon called the "12th man.” You see there are 11 men on the field of play during the game – not less, not more, always 11. The “12th man” is the radical fan in the stands who is on his or her feet cheering for their team no matter what the score or the circumstances on the field. When you are on the field of play, the energy from the fans in the stand can literally change the momentum of the game. That is why … [Read more...]

Spiritual Tools To Take Home!

Children are our number one priority and focus.  Of course!  That makes total sense since we are Saddleback Kids, the Children’s Ministry of Saddleback Church.  But at the end of the day we cannot overlook the primary disciplers of the children—parents (or other loving adults).  After all, it is the moms, the dads, the grandparents and more who spend the most teachable time with the children in our ministry.  At most, we get 3 hours a week, if they attend weekend services and are in a Kids Small … [Read more...]

Great Resource for Parents in Your Ministry

As children's ministry leaders, we are constantly on the look out for great resources that we can use ourselves or provide to the parents we minister to. Talk Now and Later written by Brian Dollar is one of those great resources everyone should have in their library.

highfive

It is not just an ordinary day. Today, what you do will make a difference. Everything, big and small, noticed or unnoticed, will contribute to the mission. It will make a difference. Every high five, every hug, every table cleaned, every chair pulled out of a trailer, every tablecloth folded, every lesson planned and every lesson taught. The games we play, the cards we print, the props we gather, the corners we sit in trying to write a lesson, the conflicts we settle, the calls we make, the … [Read more...]

And the Oscar goes to…..

oscars

If you were one of the millions of people watching television on the evening of February 22 (last night), you were probably watching the Oscars, otherwise known as the Academy Awards. This is the annual American awards ceremony that honors cinematic achievements in the film industry and parades a “who’s who” list of presenters across the stage to present a small statuette named “Oscar” to those deemed worthy of the prestigious award. I am not an actor, but when I think back to some of my … [Read more...]
