Is It Time to Invest In Yourself?

 As we approach 2019, do you need to invest in yourself?

The most challenging person you will lead in the coming year will be the person you look at in the mirror each day.  Yourself.

Often as children's ministry leaders, we spend all of our time investing in others.  And that's a good thing.  In fact, it's what you are called to do - to equip your team for the work of the ministry.

But when was the last time you invested in yourself?
When was the last time you carved out some time to improve as a children's ministry leader?

Do you want to have more leadership influence with the team you lead?

Do you want your ministry to grow and flourish?

Are you looking for someone to help you become a better leadership minister?

Do you need someone to help you navigate and face challenges you are facing?

Rick Warren said this about leading a ministry -

"Years ago I stopped worrying about how to grow our church and instead focused on growing me.  
As I grew me, our church grew."

Here's a few testimonies from leaders who have went through the Advance program. 

I am so thankful for the coaching experience I was able to have with Dale Hudson.  I have learned tools that will help with leadership, growth and structure.  I would highly recommend anyone in ministry to take part in this amazing experience.

Can you teach an "old dog" new tricks?  Dale did!  Having worked in children's ministry for almost two decades, I have a lot of experience.  Basically that means I am good at some things and avoid the rest.  If you are willing to learn, Dale can help you with the rest. 
Joel Smith, First Colony Church of Christ

Dale does a great job of lining up the essentials of children's ministry to teach you the most important, often overlooked, aspects of ministry. While all of my previous training had been "on the job," this session with Dale really solidified all that knowledge and has also helped me have some tangible aspects to measure.  I was able to use this course to put some  processes in placea nd it allowed me to step back and create an over-aching plan for the ministry.

I found the Advance program very helpful!  I'm convinced everyone can get something out of it - both those with formal training and those without. If you are a children's ministry leader,  you'll be glad you were a part.  If you're a senior pastor, you should have your kid's pastor participate.
