Five Steps in Recruiting Other Leaders

Potential children’s missions leaders can include moms, grandmothers, college students, new church members, missionaries, minister’s wives, and others. Many people don’t serve because they are not asked.

Begin looking for new leaders:

1. Pray about who might become a leader.
2. Look for adults who have a passion for serving God, who support missions, and who delight children.
3. Talk to the potential leader about the ministry and how it changes lives. If he or she seems interested in knowing more, set up a time away from church to discuss the position.
4. Give a potential leader time to pray about this ministry, then follow up.
5. Remember, not everyone is called—or has the time—to teach. Consider other ways potential leaders might participate in and support the ministry.
