Ministries / Special Needs //

today — i’m thrilled to announce a new partnership for Lemon Lime Kids. beginning november 2013, Lemon Lime Kids will offer special needs ministry consulting for children’s ministry directors leading with the local church context. for the last 8 years, i’ve been coaching children’s ministry leaders and it has been a joy and priviledge to walk along side emerging church leaders.

i’m always looking for new ways to partner with good people and expand my services so that more children can be served within the church. that’s why i’m absolutely thrilled that my good friend, Katie Wetherbee will be my partner in this new offering.
