12 by 12

Today’s idea comes from Chip Henderson, a pastor at New Covenant Church in Clovis, California. Chip has developed a program, called the 12 by 12 program, which challenges preteens to do 12 things by the time they turn 12 years old. These 12 items include:

  • memorizing scripture
  • writing a testimony
  • designing and complete a service project

Listen to today’s podcast to hear more about how Chip is encouraging and equipping his preteens to grow through the 12 by 12 program.  Click Here for a downloadable PDF bookmark that explains the 12 by 12 program in greater detail.
