Keeping vision in front of volunteers is one of the most important things you will do as a Kids Ministry Leader. Reminding people over and over of why they do what they do. On my most recent trip to Crossroads Church in Cincinnati, I was reminded of something that they do to keep the vision in front of their volunteers. Many of their kids ministry rooms have a picture wall. The pictures are specific to the ministry that happens in that room.
The volunteer room has pictures of volunteers with kids, the special needs room has pictures of one-on-one buddies with their special friend. Each picture represents a story of a volunteer making a difference in the life of a child. Many of the volunteers that came with me from my church noticed the picture walls, and were impacted by the message in the form of pictures.
