Here’s What I’d Do Pt. 1

For the next week I would like to try something on this blog.

We are going to mixing our new Preschool Kids Album all week long, which means lots of sitting around punctuated by bursts of intense activity as we lock in a song (The mix process is basically taking all your recorded songs, balancing all the different instruments and adding lots of Autotune to make my singing sound passable… yep I’m actually singing).

So in order to keep my sanity and around my regular job of keeping Hillsong Kids moving forward I would like to answer questions with a “Here’s What I’d Do…”, Or even a “Here’s What We Do…”

For example:

  • Dave. I have a two year old that brings a light saber to Church each week and we have had three hospitalisations, what would you do?
  • Or; Dave. I love country music, what’s wrong with me?
  • Or; Dave. I read a blog that disparages country music, what would you do?
So post your questions in the comments below, or @ reply me on twitter (@davewakerley) Ask about our albums, our programs, Church, Rugby or anything you like.
Now of course if no one actually comments and it gets really embarrassing, I will fill the comments with fake questions from people such as I.P. Nightly, Barb Dwyer, Stan Still and Lee King.
And my favourite Terry Bull.
I will put up a series with 2/3 questions per blog post and hopefully help someone/not embarrass myself.

    Hey Dave!

    Awesome idea! My question is: How do your KDG’s work at Hillsong Kids and how do you transition from large group time to KDG’s?

    Hi Dave, my question is “Why do the All Blacks choke at every World Cup?”….. Not that related to kids ministry but thought I’d take the opportunity to have a crack at another Kiwi during RWC time.

    Hey Dave! My question is similar to Paul’s. What have you guys seen that works and doesn’t work for recruiting volunteers? Also, do your volunteers serve in any sort of term/trimester/semester or do they come and go as they please (hope that makes sense). THANKS! I am so thankful for Hillsong Kids!!!

        SDM. I bothered to visit the town of Cutler Bay’s website. Their charter is on line. The anon above seems to be right, regardless of the political spin you added. The charter clearly defines the role of said negations to be done by the Mayor. (Not Peggy Bell or others)I believe the school board is considered to be another government entity.Section 2.1 Mayor(A) Powers of the mayor.(3) The mayor shall be the official designated to represent the town in all dealings with other governmental entities.

    I’ve got a few good ones for ya:

    How do I fire a KIDMIN volunteer when it’s appropriate?

    What are some good ways of honoring volunteers that are easy on the budget?

    How involved should my wife be in the ministry I’m leading?
