I spent four hours yesterday afternoon with the children’s ministry team at Salem Vineyard Church in Salem, Oregon. We worked through three major areas of training: storytelling, relating to parents and personal spiritual formation. Afterward, we shared a wonderful home-cooked meal and additional conversation. I appreciate their hearts for ministry and the Lord. I could tell that God is on the move in their midst. Their questions and comments challenged me. I know that great things lie in store for them as they continue to seek God’s will for their community. So this is my way of once again tipping my hat to a great church and wonderful people.
