what is your reason ?
September 26, 2014
There is a strong leadership culture at our church that necessitates a reason for everything we do. Nothing draws frustration quicker than having a question containing the word ‘why?’ answered with the phrase “Well, that’s the way we have always done it”.
In my role as a kids pastor we see things change very quickly in the world of children. New entertainment options, educational policy that shifts as the winds of technology blast past and constant research shifting the goal posts of effective ministry.
At Hillsong Kids, I need a reason for doing something and if you asked me why we approach ministry in a certain way I could tell you. So one of my long standing frustrations was how we approach ‘curriculum’.
