As a children's ministry director, you can't do it all. If you've tried to fly solo, you already know this. You need to surround yourself with a team of dedicated and energetic volunteer leaders. But this, as you also probably know, is a need that's easier to identify than to fill.

This training tool provides solid principles for developing ministry leaders. Read on to find out how you can equip your children's ministry program with enthusiastic and qualified leaders.

This tool is adapted from "Developing Coaches and Future Leaders," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by David Weil with Judy Williams. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
