What's my biggest need that I think KidMin can meet in 2011?
I have a voracious appetite for learning from real people in real ministries. While I've learned a lot from speakers and workshop leaders, I always want more and I wonder what the people around me are thinking, but there never seems time to stop and talk.
I want to be able to have a meaningful conversation with people who are in the workshops/sessions with me. I want to find out what they're struggling with and what's bringing them great joy in ministry. I want to ask them questions and grapple with real-world problems together. I want to make discoveries by the grace of God together.
That's what I think KidMin 2011 (www.childrensministry.com/kidmin) will provide me. I'm so excited that we're going beyond the show and focusing on creating authentic conversations. We won't let a packed schedule stop conversations; instead we'll actually plan for these times in everything we do. I'm glad that KidMin will have a relaxed atmosphere with environments that encourage such conversations.
I'm really looking forward to getting to know real people in real ministries at KidMin 2011! #kidmin11
