A blog dedicated to resourcing and equipping the small church and small town children’s ministry leader.
My name is Jared Massey and I am the associate pastor at Warsaw Assembly of God. I have a degree in Children’s and Family ministry from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN. I am married to a wonderful woman, Megan, who is a licensed teacher and currently a stay-at-home mom. We have two children, Zachary, who was born in September of 2009 and one who will be born late summer this year. Even though I am located in a small church, I want to do big things for the kingdom. I am here because I believe in the power of the local church, no matter its size, to influence the world with the Gospel. My personal mission is to bring big city quality to the small church.
Besides being a pastor, I work full-time at a bank during the week.
When I say we are in a small town, I mean it. We have a poplation of around 1700. Our church is smaller still. We average right around 65 on a Sunday morning. More than a third of that is located in our children’s or nursery ministry. While I am a pastor at Warsaw A/G and blog about my experiences there, everything is this blog is MY opinion and not necessarily theirs (though I hope I reflect the church’s vision in everything I do, including this blog).
