Design Lessons Learned from Running a Children’s Ministry

Through my time serving on staff at a local church in children’s ministry I learned the importance of space design for children’s ministry. What may be appealing to a child in a children’s facility may not be appealing to an adult. When designing children’s spaces, does a designer ask himself, “Would a child be drawn into this space?” or, “Is this space exciting?” So often the space is appealing to an adult but not to a child. Not only did I learn the importance of design, but also the challenges that come with sharing space and budgeting.
