Abby Burchfield (my sister) has proven her passion for children and their families with both personal enthusiasm and a professional education. She’s always ready to explain what children really need, and how to develop them holistically by faith. In this episode of Loud Leadership, Abby spoke to a group of children’s leaders and volunteers at Discovery Camp. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and I know that it will help you today.


Innovative Ideas For When Ministry Gives You Lemons

When ministry gives you lemons remember…
“You build a children’s ministry by loving one child at a time.”- Pastor Tommy Burchfield

“Jesus trusts us with His sons and daughters. That is the biggest honor and largest responsibility”- Pastor Rachel Burchfield

Behind every child is a family. You are not just in children’s ministry, but in family ministry.
You can only give what you have. Stay full privately and you’ll flow publicly.
There is no such thing as a “Jr. Jesus.”

Innovative Ideas for that moment when…“There’s a kid in front of me, what do I do?!”
-Connect before communicating [Connect with eyes; Connect with topic]
-Add rhythms to reinforce [Rules, Instructions, Verses]
-Invisible Bubbles [Ageless trick of the trade]
-High Fives and Hugs [Even if they don’t like it, they need it]
-Explain what they can do, not just what they can’t. [Choices build confidence]

Driving is a true hobby of mine. I love the idea of going 70mph down the road and looking out to feel like nothing is moving at all. Doesn’t leadership feel the same way sometimes? You feel that the day to day to is going so fast and when you slow down you realize you haven’t gone that far at all. 

This summer I had the honor of speaking to over 800 leaders stretched across 16 camps of our Discovery Camp program. Every leader is driving the vision. Your responsible for the passengers riding with you, and  the engine of the vision you're leading. We took time to talk out the 6 areas I believe every leader needs to pay attention to in order to be a great driver.

Dashboard of Destiny

1. Battery Gauge – How much energy do you have before you start the next movement?

2. Speedometer – Schedule – The faster you go the more strain takes place on the engine causing a rougher rider for all involved.

3. Temperature Gauge – Team Culture- Teams are a tension that must be managed. Leaders have to keep the balance to ensure that teams don’t run too hot or cool off.

4. RPM Gauge- Recognizing what gear the engine is in helps keeping the journey from jolting all over the place. Leaders must have the “gears” or modes of life in a sequential shifting pattern to keep things smooth.

5. Fuel Gauge – Financial Resources – We don’t see “full” and “empty” true leaders see “FAITH” and “EXCELLENCE.”

6. Oil Gauge – Without oil the engine doesn’t run as it was designed to. Oil keeps the moving parts moving. When we see OIL in the old testament it was a symbolic expression of the anointing. Leaders must have the anointing in their lives as they lead to ensure things move the way they are suppose to.

Homosexuality is the hot topic in the nation today, but it's been on a Biblical radar for much longer. In this special seminar with out Texas Bible Institute students Pastor Rachel explains how to respond to this taboo topic and give the biblical answers to cultures greatest questions.


Loves Response to Culture

  • What is culture?

    • Culture is the characteristics, beliefs, customs, and attitudes of a particular group of people which distinguishes them from someone else

    • Culture is not right or wrong good or bad, it is just the way we are

  • We Have to decide our personal convictions

  • If you truly believe the Word of God is without error then you are a bold bible believer and will base all your decisions off of the written word of God

  • Dealing with Homosexuality

    • There is an intentional homosexual agenda

      • Recognition

      • Acceptance

      • Aproval

    • When a face is put with the sin it is harder to stand on your ground

    • Jesus perfectly balanced grace and mercy with confrontation and correction

    • If we respond in hate then we have completely missed the Father’s Love

  • Christian websites with info on homosexuality

  • Do not be afraid of attitudes and ideas that are contrary to the word of God

  • What does the Bible say about homosexuality?

    • 7 references to homosexuality

      • 250 references to how we use our money

      • 300 references about caring for the poor

    • According to the Word of God it is a sin...all sin separates us from experiencing the Word of God

      • The father's love is always there we just can't experience it

    • Eph 4:15 Speak the truth in love

    • Major on the majors and not on the minors when you are working with people

    • The seven references to homosexuality: Gen 19:7-11, Judges 19:16-30, Lev. 18:22, Lev. 20:13, Matt 19:4, Mark 10:6 (Jesus defines marriage), Romans 1:26, 1 Cor 1:9-11, 1 Tim. 1:9-11

  • Like frogs boiling in a pot, the temp of culture is shifting and we don't even know it

  • Leviticus is divided into three kinds of laws

    • Civil

    • Ceremonial

    • Moral

  • Moral law is still in effect the others are not (All sexual sin including homosexual sin is located here)

  • Seven Questions

    • If christians use Leviticus 18:22 to condemn homosexuality aren't they hypocrites if they go eat fried shrimp and wear jeans?

    • Are people born gay?

      • According to science: There is no conclusive evidence. There has been studies of Identical twins that do not have uniformity in sexual orientation and yet they have the exact same gene sequence

        • Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:1 states that we are born in sin: Meaning different people may be inclined to a certain kind of sin since they were born

        • Example: Generational curses such as alcoholism

      • According to the word of God: We

    • If I have a same sex attraction am I homosexual?

      • No, We all have sinful thoughts of different types that we should not dwell on. Whatever you think on too much you will become

      • The Train Analogy : What ever leads the rest will follow

        • Thoughts: the Engine

        • Feelings/Emotions: The next car

        • Physical Body: the caboose

    • How should I respond to same sex urges?

      • The same thing you do when any other temptation comes your way.

    • Doesn't homosexuality exist in the animal world?

      • It does but, animals also eat their babies, eat their own feces, etc..

    • Homosexuality is now normal so whats wrong with it? Isn't this God’s answer for many of the orphans in the world?

      • There are wonderful loving good people ready to adopt these babies but they can’t just love who they want to love.

      • Normal means a conforming to the standard of the common type

        • Homosexuality is not statistically normal, biologically, physiological, evolutionarily

        • It may be socially accepted but it is not biblically accepted

      • We can not bend the principals of God word to suit the vocal minority groups

    • How do I respond to someone that is gay?

      • We must be accepting, loving, and not look at them as a person who is doing evil but a person who is in a trap

      • We must be compassionate to a friend who has fallen into this trap

      • We must step into some new areas and speak the truth in love

      • Galatians 6:1

      • Luke 15

      • Ephesians 4:15

      • 1 Cor 16:13

    • What relation do I have with this person?

      • Depending on the relationship you should respond differently

        • Peer or Friend: talk, listen, spend time with them

        • Relative: different boundaries

        • Leadership: be even more clear with your boundaries

    • When is the right time for excommunicating/avoiding someone?

      • Romans 16:17 and 1 Cor. 5:9- These scriptures should only be used for when you are in leadership

      • Only when you are in Leadership and you see that it is having a negative effect on the rest of the group

    • When confronting someone who believes they are homosexual use the sandwich method: confront, Lots of love, confront

    • Romans 12:31 do not be overcome by evil

      • Evil is the judgemental arrogance of christians who do not know how to respond

    • 1 Cor. 16:13-14 “Watch, stand fast in the faith be brave, be strong. let all that you do be done with love”
