compassion and children's ministry

I'm going with my long-time friend Scott Werner from Compassion International to the Children's Pastors' Conference in San Diego in March to talk about how to incorporate compassion efforts as a strategy for better children's ministry. I already wrote a little about my thoughts on this during Orange Week but I'd really like to hear from you. How can making compassion for the poor a priority increase the effectiveness of your ministry to kids and families?

Share your experiences and/or thoughts. I'll shamelessly steal them, but then you'll get to influence leaders you've never met and that's always nice. :)

  1. When I worked with fifth graders I was also sponsoring two children through an orphanage ministry in Africa. The girls especially were excited to adopt and penpal these girls. However, the program ended before we had the opportunity to pursue this dual ministry.
    I still think it's a great idea and I'm praying for God's direction in my next attempt.
