When Sean first came on staff at Destiny Church, the 1st-5th grade students were all together. His first step in creating a preteen ministry was creating a program within the existing Children’s Ministry called Fifth Grade Helpers.
For over a decade, this program has been evolving as a discipleship program, specifically focused on helping students learn to serve the Church, and to build relationships with others who are dedicated to serving the church.
It has created long-lasting servants, many who are now adults and who continue to serve the Church and maintain friendships with the others who served with them back when they were preteens.
Today is part 1 of a 4 part series about the Fifth Grade Helper program. Today’s podcast is focused on the “Who” and “Why” of the program.
A few months ago, we released a podcast that gave an overview to the Fifth Grade Helper Program.
