Why Attend?

Your team will be equipped to RESPOND to the current REALITY for preteens in your church and community.

You'll learn strategies to guide 9-12-year-olds as they take steps of faith ownership, and as they grow Biblical and Christ-glorifying roots.

We'll gather at the MET church in Houston, a church that values Intentional Ministry to Preteens. You'll be able to see their space and talk with their team, along with dozens of other veterans in Intentional Preteen Ministry.
