I got to go to a monthly children’s minister’s hang-out this past Wednesday. We shared stories and ideas, talked about the summer to come, and prayed for each other. At the end, two pastors shared a really cool idea for a huge event that may take place in summer 2013, and invited the rest of us to pray about joining the team to make it happen. I’m excited.
The ideas that get shared at this meeting are insanely valuable, and the opportunities that are coming from it are really exciting. Not only that, but when I’m at this meeting I get a tangible reminder that a win for any of us is a win for all of us. Not only that, I’m reminded that we strive to be co-laborers, not compete for market share.
I know I’ve talked about finding groups more than once before, but I think it’s worth saying again. One of the best uses of 2+ hours is collaborating with other leaders. I guarantee there’s a team near you worth joining (and if there’s not go make one), so be a part of it.
