Preservice Prayer for Preteens

If you like what you’re hearing, subscribe to the FourFiveSix podcast by clicking here and you’ll get great ideas for your preteen ministry four, five, or six times a week.

This week, Chris and Sean will be co-hosting the podcast. They start off this week by sharing a great idea they’ve seen in other ministries and are planning to implement in their preteen ministry (Elevate) this next year.

One of the best ways to teach preteens something is by having them do it. If we want to teach them that prayer in important, but we never give them opportunities TO pray, then what we are actually teaching is that prayer is not THAT important. The method is the message.

Today on the podcast, Sean and Chris share a way that they are planning to use this year to teach that prayer is important: by intentionally setting aside time each week to pray before service even begins.
