Your Program and Environment: Are they Helping or Hindering Good Behavior?

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.

Sometimes when preteens misbehave, we are responsibility (in some measure) for the misbehavior. If we haven’t set up our environment as a place where preteens can thrive behaviorally, then how can we expect that behavioral excellence from them?

In this episode of the podcast, Sean shares 4 ways to set up the space and program of your ministry for success. He discusses:

  1. Environment (There’s a whole podcast about this idea here)
  2. Programs that match preteens
  3. Addressing problematic program elements
  4. Structuring lessons around engaging topics
