I am a DCE (Director of Christian Education) and have the spirit of a helper. I like to help. I like to try things and come up with new things to try. It's fun in ministry because there's always a new way to show the love of Jesus. And as a DCE I believe in equipping the lay leaders who work tirelessly for others in the congregation. Are you stuck? Need an idea? Just need some emotional support?
My pastor once told me that the sheer number of ideas that come through my head is astounding. I appreciated that because it's true. I have a tendency to have a creative turn of mind, not to mention that I am a teacher and we're always assessing what's working and what isn't and trying new things. You might say my mind is a wild jungle of "What if we..." brainstorming.
Instead of just thinking all these ideas and driving my pastor crazy I thought I'd share them. If you try something or a version of something and it works or if you have an idea of your own, please share it so others can benefit. After all, it's all about Jesus!
