Dale, thanks for the insight as well as the excellent list. I appreciate that you begin with their personal walk with God and then that they teach others.

Dale - thanks for the great insight... I'd add my own "Makes sure they have signed photo consent release forms on all students before posting a video on facebook.." HA - just got burned on that one! Details...

I was thrilled that you listed "leads adults well." Surprisingly, this is more a part of my job than I ever realized it would be. However, managing over 100 volunteers, training teachers, etc., is a large part of my work in Children's Ministry. Thank you for the great list!!

Once again you brought it brother!
