We sat down with Renee recently and asked her to share about serving in our kids ministry.
Q. Why Do you serve in kids ministry?
A. I serve in kids Ministry because I feel deeply called by Jesus to invest in the lives of kids. I love seeing the pure joy and excitement in kids when they start to understand the Gospel. It makes me want to take that feeling, bottle it up and share it with everyone I know!
Q. How do the kids evidence the gospel of Jesus to you?
A. Kids evidence the gospel by showing me what forgiveness and grace mean in a simple way, the way Jesus designed them to be. The gospel isn't meant to be complicated and children always remind me of how simple and beautiful Jesus' love for sinners is.
Q. How has serving deepened your love for God?
A. Serving has deepened my love for God because I always get more out of it than I actually give and in turn it causes me to be in awe of how sovereign, loving and gracious God really is. Also it has helped me to see how much He is working and shaping the lives of His children so they can serve Him!
Q. What encouragement would you have for those who want to serve, but are hesitant to try kids ministry?
A. I would tell them that serving in kids Ministry is going to bless them more than they could imagine if they would give it a try! There is a unique beauty and joy in serving God's children, and kids are so much fun to love on and invest in! Plus, in kids Ministry there's never a dull moment!
