Today on the podcast, Sean talks about a way to connect to preteens who are sporty or athletic.

By being relevant about what the preteens life is all about and helping them make a connection between what their lives are about and God who created all of life. There are preteens in our ministry that come and we aske them to do crafts and sit or walk around the room and have discussions but are athletically minded kids. So, the question then becomes how you help them know that church is a place for them.

Sean gives some ideas to help you reach these preteens.

  1. Allow preteens to play an active sport, basketball in a gym or soccer on the grass outside before service. Limited space? Try gaga ball or 9-square.
  2. Have a boys’ night that was about games and they played sports.
  3. This ideas from Tom: a parent night that is a competition between preteens and parents. This was an event that he held for the preteens in his ministry. The sport does not matter just use one the preteens are into.
  4. VBS style Monday through Friday day camp that focused on sports. By finding people in your church who may play different sports that are willing to come direct them in the sports.
  5. Incorporate sports into your lesson is another great idea. Whenever giving an example you can use sports to make it more relevant to them.
  6. Offer a themed lesson that uses a sports emphasis.

So how do you reach the sporty/athletic kids in your ministry. We would love for you to share some of your ides.
