Many of you know that I (Greg Baird) recently took a position with David C Cook. My new role – Senior Director of Programs/Leadership Development – is basically my dream job! I have the privilege of developing & implementing ministry training for churches & ministries around the world. Since starting the job in January, I’ve already had opportunity to offer training in India/Nepal, South Africa & Peru/Bolivia. And the main area of focus is toward those who serve vulnerable & at-risk children (which is most of the children around the world).
Because of this new role, I have closed down the business side of KidMin360. I loved serving local churches through training, consulting & job searches, but there’s only so many hours in the day! After much thought & consideration, I’ve also decided to rebrand the KidMin360 blog. KidMin360 will become ChildrensMinistryLeader.com.
Why the name change? Simple… the term “children’s ministry” is more widely understood than the term “kidmin”, both here in the US and certainly around the world.
For the next month or two I will gradually move some of the more popular of the 600+ posts from here at KidMin360 over to ChildrensMinistryLeader.com. Once that is completed I will resume doing something I love to do but haven’t done much of this year – write about effectively leading in Children’s & Family Ministry.
As a side note, I’ve also changed our Twitter name from @KidMin360 to @ChildMinLeader. If you’ve been following @KidMin360, you don’t need to do anything. We also have a new Facebook page – Facebook.com/ChildrensMinistryLeader. We’ve requested that the KidMin360 page be merged with this new one, but we are still waiting on Facebook’s response.
Thank you for all the support you’ve offered for the ministry of KidMin360. I have truly enjoyed the past 5 years and have been so blessed to meet some of you incredible leaders! Hopefully, that won’t change! But seasons come and go and the season of KidMin360 is over. I appreciate your prayers in the new role God has for me, and I look forward to continuing to offer what I can via the new blog at ChildrensMinistryLeader.com.
P.S. We are still representing a wonderful Children’s Pastor opportunity for the right leader. See details and apply by clicking here if you are searching!
