Takeaways for Leaders: The top 3 characteristics of a great kids ministry volunteer: 1. They have passion. They should be passionate about raising up the next generation, and this passion should be apparent in the way they interact with kids and parents. 2. They are relational, both with the kids and the parents. They care about investing into kids even outside of the weekend. 3. They have urgency. They care about small details in order to create an excellent environment for kids and parents. Many times you only have one chance to make a lasting impression on kids and families, and great volunteers know that every minute they have with them counts.
