Overview

As someone who ministers to preteens, you can play an essential role in helping them develop a solid sense of self and a strong, resilient faith that will weather the coming storms of the teenage years. This download is meant to give you a starting point for doing just that.

To begin, you'll find several articles that address specific issues preteens are dealing with. After each article there are several "Consider" questions for you to use in your own personal reflection or to talk about with others in your church who work with preteens.

Then you'll find a section called "Ministry Insights." This is the spot where you'll get some specific ideas and practical strategies for strengthening your ministry to preteens.

It can be a scary world out there for your preteens—having you alongside of them, helping them navigate this time of major transition, will make a huge impact in their lives.
