5 Things To Remember When Leading A Creative Team

Ten years ago, when I first began creating High Voltage Kids Ministry curriculum, I remember being scared to death. I had never tried ANYTHING like this before and had put it off for many years already. You see, I had felt God leading me in this direction but wasn’t willing to take the leap. When I finally decided to jump, I assembled a team of 10 of my best leaders in a room, and we proceeded to craft the very first High Voltage release, “Got Questions?” It was a wonderfully collaborative process, and the end product was amazing.

When it came time to work on the second series, “BUGS”, I took a radically different approach. I sat down in front of a computer and tried coming up with everything on my own – start to finish. I wrote the lessons, the games, the video scripts, etc. It took 4 times as long, and it was an excruciatingly painful process. I realized through that experience – creativity flows much easier when it is done in community.

Now, every time we set out to do a new curriculum series (which is about every 6-8 weeks at this point), I assemble a Creative Team to help with the process. I thought I would share some of the lessons I have learned as I have worked with my Creative Teams for the past 10 years.
