Children - Elementary: Packing Their Chutes: Giving Preteens Faith for a Lifetime
Just when you thought you had kids figured out, they morph into preteens…tweens…upper-elementary-age kids! As they stand on the precipice of childhood, ready to take their leap into youth ministry, how can you be sure your preteens have what they need to not only survive, but also thrive? This workshop will help you understand what’s going on in preteens’ changing minds and bodies—and how to help them grow spiritually. You’ll discover the top things kids this age want from you, the things you should never do or say, and the keys to ministry that’ll keep kids coming back every week. Plus, we’ll help you understand what preteens’ parents are going through and how you can partner with them, too. This workshop will be presented by Joe Patterson.
