Brian and I have been working on ways for our ministries to work better together. So far, we've come up with three things. Here they are:
·Occasionally switch Sunday morning teaching. This Sunday is the first time we're doing this. I'd love to see this happen at least four times a year for a couple of different reasons. One is that Brian is a great teacher who's fun and poignant at the same time. I want my kids to be able to benifit from his wisdom. Two is that some of my kids have no idea who he is and they'll be in his group in no time. Either way, it's a win/win.
·Assist each other in big events. If Brian is getting ready to leave for camp on the morning of, I can run his registration while he meets parents and welcomes students. We haven't put this into practice yet, but I love the idea.
·Get our students to work together on big initiatives. This past May/June, our church entered into a campaign to raise money to buy the property our church sits on. Both Middle and High School were involved in the effort. Over the next 3 years, we'll be doing some baby-sitting nights together. Uniting the students under a common goal is a great way to improve relations between the ministries.
Anybody else have any tips on improving relations between Middle/High School ministries...
