Academy Teacher Update

Mark BurrowsHi Families,

I wanted to give you an update on where we are for Fall Academy Teachers.

The good news — so far we have 25 teachers. That’s a little over half.

But . . . we’ve only had 3 first-time teachers come forward.

And only 7 of the 25 are dads.

I believe our Children’s Ministry is at its best when there’s a little more balance.

Our veteran teachers are amazing AND we benefit from new eyes and fresh perspectives.

Our moms are the best in the city AND our kids need positive male role models guiding them on their faith journeys.

If the idea of being in a roomful of kids freaks you out a little, I understand.

My first job here, back in 1995, was director of the Youth Choir. (This was after I had told myself I would not, could not, work with teenagers!)

I ended up doing that for 17 years!

Give yourself some credit. If you love God and love kids, you’ve got what it takes.

The rest is just glue sticks . . . and we have plenty of those!

Thanks for considering.

Mark
