three-laughingDale Hudson created a list of 20 Things Children’s Ministry Leaders Never Say.

It’s a humorous list that highlights the things you’ll most likely never hear a children’s ministry volunteer say. Here are a couple:

  1. Parents, please be 45 minutes late picking up your children after the event.  I really enjoy waiting.
  2. I love changing diapers.  It helps me master the art of gag reflex.
  3. I love this copier.  It never jams.
  4. No one has ever asked me if they can go to the bathroom…in the middle of the lesson.
  5. 3rd grade boys, I need you start moving and wiggling.  You’re way too lethargic.
  6. I am praying the adult service will go 30 minutes over time.  I want to spontaneously invent more activities for this room full of 4-year-olds.
