Becoming a Leader with a Voice
Adapted from Keith Johnson's article in Children's Ministry
What makes a great leader? How can you have a lasting impact on those you serve?

We'll be discussing the 7 Characteristics that spell the difference between good leaders and Great Leaders in the next 3 newsletters.
 
Having a voice into a person's life (whether adult or child) is the result of a Great Leader.
 
#1. Know Jesus
A Great Leader must know and experience daily to reflect His love and speak it into the lives of those they serve.

#2. Love people
If you can't stand the smell of the sheep, get out of the pastorate.
Ministry Spotlight: Matthew Miller
Matthew Miller is a ventriloquist from MD and a 2018 National Scholarship recipient. He believes that puppetry is his calling and has eagerly spread God’s word to children and adults for 8 years at churches, children's ministry events, mission trips, and beyond!
Following his time at FCP, Matthew hit the ground running with great enthusiasm back home! He prepared and performed at his churches National Night Out, co-led prop making at a musical camp, collaborated with his pastor on a puppet skit for a blended service, and also met with his pastor to share his experience at the FCP conference and how they can incorporate what they learned to invigorate this puppet ministry.
"I really enjoyed attending the Fellowship of Christian Puppeteers Conference! It was a blessing! This was my first puppetry conference that I have attended and I would like to thank the Scholarship Committee for awarding the scholarship to me, so I could attend."
When you give to FCP, your donation can have a lasting impact on the ministry of someone like Matthew.
