In children’s ministry when we get a new family or a new visitor we are so happy to see them, we give them attention and then, over time, we just “take them for granted”. This is definitely a way to “blow” our children’s ministry. So, to keep your focus on the personal “touch”, consider the following . . .
- Always take time to smile and say hello whenever you see families, children and volunteers
- Learn names – in a big church this can be more of a challenge, but it is well worth it to take the time to learn names
- Try to make time – even a few minutes, to show interest by asking how things are going with them.
The “bonus” if you do these things is you will find visitors become members and volunteers become people who commit long term! And your church will really become a “family”!
What do you do to keep your focus on the personal “touch”?
