  • 02 – Discipline

    August 24, 2007 · 2 comments


    This month we’re looking at the real meaning of Discipline. Most folks hear ‘discipline’ and think a strict, military-style encounter… but God’s view is quite different. Join James & Dave as they cover the what’s, why’s and how’s of Godly discipline in Children’s Ministry.

    Your input is always welcome. Email us your questions, tips & suggestions to cmmonthly (at) gmail (dot) com.

    **Update** Make sure you check out the 8-part Mini-Cast Series on Proper Discipline in Children’s Ministry.

    Some of our listeners, and even a few of our guest-hosts, have asked how we do what we do. I finally figured out that I needed to create a post that I can refer them to rather than giving very short email responses that don’t really help anyone.

    First, the mandatory disclaimer. This is not THE way to do it… it’s just how I do it. It works for me. If you have a better way, please let me know.

    Second, thanks to Michael Murloc (formerly of The Weekly Murloc) and Scott Johnson (of ExtraLife Radio) for all their help. Michael shaved three months off my learning curve and Scott’s emails helped me tremendously when we had to shift to being a Skype-cast. Also thanks to my bud Vance who turned me on to the whole iPod, iTunes, podcasting thing to begin with. [click to continue…]

    Recently I created a series of illustrations to help me teach a lesson on how to attract friends. I’d like to make a PowerPoint version complete with very basic notes in Word format available to you. These illustrations combined with a bible story on Jonathan and David’s friendship and a good memory verse (There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24b) would make a pretty good service. Enjoy!

    You’ll need Microsoft PowerPoint and Word to view these files. If you end up using them… let me know! 🙂

    Well hello there! It’s our first ever episode of Children’s Ministry Monthly Podcast and we couldn’t be more surprised that it worked out thrilled! Children’s Ministry Monthly will be a monthly podcast focusing on the needs of normal, everyday children’s ministers. This includes pastors, lay-ministers, and volunteers.

    Your hosts are James Kennison & Dave White. James is a children’s pastor in Kansas City, Missouri and David serves as children’s pastor in Macon, Georgia. Check the About Us page for more info.

    This month we’re focusing on Releasing Volunteers to do ministry. We can’t do it all ourselves… and God doesn’t want us to. Though delegating is hard work (often harder than just doing it yourself) is is mandatory for us to share the blessings of ministry to children with others in our churches.

    This podcast will always emphasis and depend on your input. We’d like to know what topics you’d like to hear discussed. What ideas, resources and input do you have to share? What questions would you like to bounce off your hosts and their audience? You can send such input to our email address: cmmonthly@gmail.com or call the Howl-line at 206-350-HOWL (4695).

    We’d also like to keep this blog updated with occasional ideas, articles, websites and other resources. If you have something you’d like to share just email it to us!

    Till next month…
