What do you do when preteens have answers to questions that don’t line up with the truths of God’s Word? How do you help guide them toward correct answers?

Today’s podcast is an excerpt of a Deeply Rooted Curriculum Subscriber Training about answering preteens questions. You’ll hear several subscribers offer their wisdom on how to handle a situation where a preteen gives a false answer, as well as a helpful analogy from Sean regarding helping preteens to deconstruct and reconstruct their ways of thinking.

So how about you? How do you help preteens when they give wrong answers?

Are you looking for a way to ramp your RE-ENGAGEMENT of Volunteers and Preteens. One great way to re-engaging your preteen ministry is through special events.

Today on the podcast, Rob Watson of CIY's preteen division Superstart! talked with Sean about the power of events to re-engage and energize a group of preteens and their leaders.

In response to the shutdowns and restrictions that exist for many ministries, CIY has altered its preteen event strategy this year to provide a great preteen event that you can do at your own church.

As part of your re-engagement strategy, check out FourFiveSix’s Event Packs, which contains 5 fully developed events ready for you to use with your preteens.

As a ministry leader, do you see volunteers as those who fill roles in YOUR ministry, or those in whom you are there to serve and make an investment in as they develop THEIR ministries?

God’s Kingdom is not built by using people.

As preteens move into early adolescence, play is a vital piece of healthy development for them, and an important part of Intentional Preteen Ministry. In the last 12 months, there have been many lost “play opportunities” for kids who’ve been isolated due to quarantines and other restrictions.

Today on the podcast, Sean talks about how play benefits preteens, and what he’s noticed lately about how 4th-6th graders are engaging differently during this time with play opportunities in his ministry.

Play is critically important for the healthy development of preteens, and a critical part of Intentional Preteen Ministry.

Chip exhorts us to count the blessings of the past year! You have permission from God to know that you are blessed.
