books that have changed me...

tcscglsmallthumbnail I was unpacking some boxes from our move - yeah we still have unpacked boxes,(Well my wife was, I was just adding to the mess) and found some of my books. George Barna's book "Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions" has been a book that has influenced me both personally and professionally. What's funny is that I originally got this book hoping that I might get some children's discipleship tips to apply to my own kids... Instead I came to realize that this is a book that calls for a serious look as to why children's ministry is one of the most important ministries in your church. Even though I am currently in student ministry, I still am of the firm stance that cm ministry is the most vital ministry for the health and life of the church! Maybe it's because i am in middle school ministry and basically have my feet in both the kids ministry and high school ministry... Who knows...
