Relationships matter. Simple enough; no one will likely argue this point. Ministry is filled with all sorts of ups and downs, but, at the end of the day, relationships continue holding everything together. Beyond hip children’s ministry themes, cutting edge technology implementation, and crazy games with kids, creating bonds, and giving others the opportunity to bond with one another, opens the door to deeper, lasting life-long relationships. Christ, himself, seeks not just acceptance, participation, or compliance; but relationship.
