Getting Real...Preparing to Lead

WHO: "I hope you make time to join us, a passionate group of ministry leaders, desperately wanting to continually improve our walk alongside kids 9-12 as they develop their OWN life-long relationship journey with Christ." -Sean Sweet, Community Facilitator, FourFiveSix.org

HOW: "I look forward to this year's online conference. I'll be hosting it in our ministry space to include my leaders. I got so much out of the sessions last year." -Matt, Ogden UT 

WHY: "During early adolescence, kids move from blanket acceptance of adult moral judgment to developing their own personal values...they start to consider complex moral and ethical questions yet are unprepared to cope with them." -National Middle School Association, Research Summary
