Want to shut down thinking and dialogue in your preteen ministry? If so, use a lot of close-ended questions.

Want to get preteens thinking and talking? Want to move preteens towards OWNERSHIP of their faith, instead of just regurgitation of your faith? If so, use a lot of open-ended questions.

If you are unclear on the difference, or just want to learn more about this concept, then today’s podcast is for you! Check out this short explanation of the difference, and how open-ended questions can become a better tool for your ministry to preteens than close-ended ones.
