What’s the best way to work with a senior pastor? Why is networking important and how do you do it? When conflict arises, how can it be handled? Veteran Children’s pastor, Ryan Frank, has learned some things during his 15 years of ministry. In this compact and visually compelling book, he discusses a number of those things and offers practical tips and tools for addressing them. Sprinkled throughout are memorable quotes, such as this from the Budget chapter: “Make a remarkable ministry the focus instead of making budget issues the focus.” In addition, each chapter contains guest contributions from ministry colleague interviews and the occasional “Talking with Facebook Friends” feature, with a variety of ministry practitioners’ short answers to topical questions. This book is addressed to children’s ministry staff but can be useful for any children’s ministry leader or leadership team looking to strengthen their ministry skills.
