C-03 Middle Mania! Ministry with Young Adolescents
Middle School and Junior High Youth have tremendous potential for energizing faith. Our ministry with them can not only address their developmental tasks but also create a meaningful community that reaches out in active service. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to harness the giftedness of young adolescents by ministering effectively among them.
