Life Defining Moments that Will Increase Children Ministry Effectiveness
Paying attention to your “ah-ha” ministry moments could define your leadership and change the direction of your ministry. Listen to ministry moments many children ministries face and discover how these moments can increase ministry effectiveness.

What can they do to build strategic relationships with those who move from a distant supporter to a full advocate?
