5 Post-KidMin Conference To-Do’s

September 30, 2014 — 6 Comments

 

I was delighted to attend Group’s KidMin Conference in Columbus, Ohio again this year.  This is the only national conference that I attend each year and I absolutely love it!  I always find the worship, the teaching, the interactive workshops and the connections made to be re-energizing to my soul.

I was blessed to have my daughter, husband, son, and mom (who's not pictured) join me for this trip.

Today I want to speak to post-conference to-do’s (I will post notes soon).  So many times after a power-packed conference, we leave fired up, ready to take on the world with our new-found tips, resources and ideas.  But then life happens…our intentions are good…but we never put a plan into place.  I’d like to help you do that, along with offering a few other helpful tips.

Processing KidMin 2014

  • Take a deep breath and just rest.  If you’re like me, you went full-steam ahead in Ohio.  Take a day (or two) to unwind and rest your brain and your body if you can.  A rested mind is a mind that can think and process more clearly.
  • Ask God to help you discern what next steps you should take based on what you’ve seen and heard.  What were the key points you jotted down?  List a few practical next steps you’d like to implement within a practical time frame and pray about any people who could help you take those next steps.  Post those next steps in a visible place – keep the vision ahead of you!
  • Write up a summary of what you learned and present it to your team/volunteers/supervisor.  Explain why the conference was beneficial, a few highlights of what you learned and your next steps.
  • Keep in touch with those you connected with at the conference.  Do this regularly by phone, email and/or social media.  Don’t lose those connections – we need each other!
  • Finally, register for KidMin 2015!  It will be held in Chicago – one of my favorite cities!  Find details here.
