5. Ministry Opportunities
Ministry offers a great opportunity to develop leadership qualities
in your children.
Church Ministry – Churches
can provide some great opportunities for serving in many areas: the nursery, children’s ministry, food ministries, as
well as many others.
ministry opportunity ideas that can be done in a small self-initiated group or with your family are visiting nursing homes,
children’s hospitals, blessing a military family that has a parent absent, sending packages to those serving in the
military and serving or helping elderly people in your own neighborhood that are lonely or in need of some service.
Opportunities are a great way for your child(ren) to step outside of themselves and make a difference in the lives of others,
while helping them develop a spirit of compassion and love for those in need. Activities that help others
are sometimes better then activities that are merely fun. Fun is good, but service is best.
