Preteens: Ministers in Training


Fifth and sixth graders don’t want to be treated like
little children. They want to feel important! Here’s how to pull
off a training program that’ll inspire kids this

  • Require a written application. Give kids a form detailing the
    requirements and have them complete and sign it. This will increase
    kids’ commitment level.
  • Get informed commitments from parents. Have parents co-sign the
    application so you know there will be family support and so parents
    know what you expect.
  • Make the training hands-on. Use your best hands-on teacher
    training lessons and resources to equip these young leaders. Group
    Publishing’s four-part video series, Preschool Teacher Training,
    appeals to this video generation.
  • Cover relevant topics. Deal with issues such as classroom
    management; the importance of being a good role model; how kids
    learn; using active, hands-on learning methods; and church policies
    for people who work with children.
  • Celebrate. Punctuate your program with a fun graduation party,
    complete with diplomas, pepperoni pizza and Dr Pepper!

Please keep in mind that phone numbers, addresses, and
prices are subject to change.
