Cover0511>>From the Editor: When I took on new responsibilities several years ago, I experienced those unsettling moments when everything wasn't working the way I thought they should.

>>A New Perspective
Ministry involves the mountain-top experiences -- helping parents through crisis, seeing kids' lives forever changed, and being there for moments when a child "gets it" in Sunday school or VBS.

Discover a whole new way to see the parts of your job that, well...just stink.

Check out a few practical, innovative ways to BEEF UP the male presence on your kidmin team.
