Full Title
Training for Children’s Ministry Leaders in Orange County Southern Baptist Association to Develop Preteens as Leaders
Author
Joni A. Lum D.Min.
Abstract
Equipping preteens as leaders is an essential part of preteen discipleship that not
only grows the individual but keeps him or her engaged in the local church. Children’s
ministry leaders need to recognize the preteen years as distinctly different from younger
childhood and equip preteens to serve in their church. This process is kingdom building
as stronger leaders are developed and student attrition is minimized. This project included
creating training for children’s ministry leaders, evaluating training results, and coaching
leaders through the early steps of creating their own preteen leadership program. While
most agreed this training was good and important, most were not able to implement due
to the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
