Let me put it this way, if ‘regular’ preachers stayed in a church for only a few short months at a time, or if those preachers did very little preparation before the service, the church would be considered a sham. Everyone would see these things as major problems. But when kid’s leaders are on a conveyor belt, coming in and out of the ministry, this doesn’t cause an eyelid to be batted. Why is that? Why doesn’t lack of consistency in our children’s ministry bother us? Jesus cared (/cares) a great deal about Children, and their faith, so why don’t we pay as much attention?
I say these things as challenges, not as judgments, for I am as guilty as everyone else. If this had not been pointed out to me I don’t think I would have ever thought of it myself.
