So I’m not great at a lot of things, but finding things and retaining where they are is something that I am really good at. So for a long time I’ve wanted to create the Ultimate Small Group Leader Resource Kit for Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry. I know that nowadays you need to turn this into an ebook and get people to subscribe to a newsletter in order to really make it help your blog…
But I just don’t want to do it that way, so this kit will always be up above under resources. I hope that you find it useful. Be sure to let me know if there is something that I’ve missed.
This isn’t a list of all the resources out there, as much as it is a list of things that you will want to know for Children’s and Student Ministry. I have used or have had each of these resources strongly recommended to me.
Most links are affiliate links from Amazon. So if you purchase from Amazon after clicking one of these links, I get a little kickback.
