I've been pondering this question because I know I want to get more involved now that I'm more stable. To start, I have bipolar disorder, and stress can easily trigger episodes for me. Suffice it to say, serving in children's ministry from elementary school downward would likely just cause more problems than my service would help because children stress me greatly. I'm not really a "youth" kind of person, but I'm not completely opposed, as long as God leads. For a variety of reasons, I'm disqualified from ministry, so anything on pastoral staff or in the deacon body is off-limits. I also don't meet the standards for Sunday School teachers, either. I'm not actively involved in the disqualifying behavior, but, IMO, my past behavior and my current illness make me unfit to be in that level of responsibility. I know I have eliminated several options, but I am open to serving in an assistant capacity, a background role, or something similar. What would you suggest that I check out?
