Most of them are on cmconnect.org... some I work with... can you email me which ones and I'll let you know more specifics? Hope you are well, Todd. Let me know if I can do anything else to serve you and your church. Michael Chanley

I need to ammend my - part 3 -

Instead of "transfering to a new church" I actually go to Spencer Click because he is "big and good looking." : )

Looking really pretty: Rose Chanley (my wife... yes, I know... it's shameless)

ummm... there's more... but, I'm running out of time... and just realized this won't all fit... ugh.

My point is that with social networking and the breakdown of six degrees of seperation to one degree of seperation, we can now contact people almost directly... we can find leaders to network with and get information from. We can learn from one another in a way never before imagined.

I think James was also alluding to this, it takes humility, a teachable spirit, and a desire to not settle for the status quo to become a leader in any area.

As it is written: 1 Peter 5:5

Honored to serve with each of you.

Ha... He don't know this, because I've never told him (until now); but, when someone contacts me about serving in an inner city church and doing Children's Ministry there... I refer them to James. God has put James in a unique place, with a very specific calling and set of gifts that makes him a great resource for Children's Ministers doing inner city ministry. He is the only person I know doing what he is doing... and, he has a great heart for teaching and leading others... case in poing: this blog, his podcasts, etc...

ummm... thanks Spencer... but, I hardly think I belong in this conversation. If anyone is a guru its the people who have been doing ministry for years and with excellence and in many varied positions.

My experience is to be blessed to connect a lot of people to others. I cut my teeth on leadership as a Sergeant of Marines, 7 years at a small church doing CM, and now almost 3 at a bigger church. I'm just getting started in my ministry. Honored to serve, no doubt... but really not worthy.

I think the point James is making, correct me if I'm wrong, is that there are far too many people who are trying to provide answers to things they know nothing about and have no experience doing. From my conversations with James, we've talked on the phone a couple of times, I know he is serving at an inner city church.
