“But I don’t like to sing.”

“OK, well, I don’t like to tell the truth or tithe or go to church or (fill in the blank).”

If God is calling our preteens to do something, we should shepherd them in that direction, whether they currently “like to” or not.

And if you’re not sure God is really calling us to sing, read this. Seriously…before you do anything else. There really is no doubt that God desires for us to sing praises and sing in worship to him.  And not begrudgingly….but joyfully.

So, maybe your preteens don’t currently sing.  How can you change the culture, to where they do…and love doing it?

Yesterday, we talked about 3 conversations you can have in your preteen ministry to help create a safe space where preteens feel compelled to freely worship through singing.

Today, Sean gives 3 practical tips for how you can create a culture of worship:

  1. Create a worship space
  2. Teach about worship
  3. Alter the number of worship songs and their placement in your service

By the way, here’s a quote from Martin Luther: “A person who…does not regard [music] as a marvelous creation of God, must be a clodhopper indeed and does not deserve to be called a human being; he should be permitted to hear nothing but the braying of asses and the grunting of hogs.”

Wow! That’s blunt. Haha.
