Today on the podcast, Sean shares an excerpt from Patrick Snow’s main session at the 2018 Preteen Leaders’ Online Conference.
Patrick explains the change that occurred for him in ministry two and a half years ago. As a consistent preteen leader Patrick was always there as the groups of preteens rotated through the ministry. Two and a half years ago everything changed when his pastor asked him to follow a group of boys, starting when they were in 5th grade and staying with them until they are seniors in high school. This was a step out of Patrick’s comfort zone for sure. The beginning was chaos, he admitted. Now that he has been with the boys for two and a half years, things are changing. The boys are excited to see him, and they are beginning to open up more. Patrick is excited to see the boys and they can have much deeper conversations now. Being a constant drip in their lives allows for a much closer relationship with them.
