Infuse... What's it all about?

In early 2007 I got new marching orders for my life. The Lord gave me a fresh desire to take what I’ve learned about children’s ministry and leadership and pass it on to the next generation of leaders. I began to look for ways to do this in addition to my monthly audio leadership resource “the Club.” I added a couple of blogs, my own plus one with Ryan Frank. I began to host forums and discussion groups online and began to write for several ministry publications; yet I knew there was still something missing. It seemed like the more I did to mentor others the more people wanted me to come up with a way to personally coach and mentor them. For years I’ve been looking for a way to offer a mentoring service that’s intensive yet affordable for any size church. Then I stumbled on a way to accomplish what I’ve wanted to accomplish for the cost of a four-day conference. When I first told my family about my idea they thought I was crazy. One of my daughters said: "Let me get this right 20 random #kidmin leaders are going to come to our house for 2 days? How are you going to make sure they are not weird?" That was a good question.

 Infuse has truly been a God idea. Mr. Webster defines infuse as: to instill a quality or skill in someone or something; to soak or pour into. This is what I’ve been searching for, a way to pour into others what it’s taken me years to learn so they can be better leaders and accomplish more in less time. Infuse is limited to 20 selected candidates each session. At this place in my life and ministry I'm so honored and blessed to be able to make this service available. Over the next few days we're going to look over all the information and details about this proven leadership resource. As you read my blog I hope you will ask the Lord if infuse is right for you. I’d love for you to prayerfully consider this investment in yourself, in your dreams and in your ministry.  I want to help you become the leader you want to be and pour into you the qualities and skills to make your dreams reality. I believe this is my chance to take what the years have given me so I can pass it on to the next generation. 

more to come...

  1. Just taking a moment to thank you for being receptive to God's calling to share your experiences and knowledge with other kidmin leaders. I'm afraid that for a number of reasons, I'm unable to consider infuse personally at this time, but I'll be praying for great things for those who do have the opportunity to join you. Would love to participate someday.
