Ever thought about making your next volunteer training day AN EVENT? Here’s one idea – make your training like that T.V. show – The Amazing Race! This idea came from Lynn Krogstad, a children (and preteen) pastor in Sacramento, CA. Thanks, Lynn!  Hear the details in the podcast episode above.

A couple of announcements that you’ll hear in today’s podcast:

  1. The Map. We are reassembling and rereleasing a map of every preteen ministry in America (and maybe the world). Want to add your preteen ministry to the list? Just click here.
  2. R2A (Retreat to Advance): November 3-5, 2015. More info on this one in the near future. Woohoo!
  3. If you’ll be in the Sacramento area (or want to be) on May 19th, join Patrick and Sean for a FREE lunch and preteen ministry training, compliments of Christ in Youth SuperStart. Call 417-781-2273 to register. The training will be on using “The Bike” philosophy in your preteen ministry.
