Understanding Preteens’ Struggles

Listen to the podcast as Nick, creator of PreteenMinistry.net, talks to Nate Cummings, preteen pastor at Adventure Christian Church in northern California, as they talk about UNDERSTANDING PRETEEN’S STRUGGLES.

Today’s preteens face a number of issues: peer pressure, bullying, broken homes, girl/guy relationships, a rapidly changing body and tons more.  How can we better understand the struggles preteens face? What help can a preteen ministry provide?  How can we create a team of leaders who walk through life with preteens?  Listen as Nate & Nick answer these questions and more.

This podcast was originally posted on my blog a few months ago. It was so popular that I’ve decided to re-post it in hopes that those who didn’t get a chance to listen to it would.

This podcast is a recording of a broadcast called FourFiveSix On-the-Air on CM Connect Radio.  FourFiveSix is a group dedicated to helping your preteen ministry take the next step. FourFiveSix On-the-Air goes lives every other Thursdays. Join Nick Diliberto, your host, as he interviews leaders from FourFiveSix as they talk about various preteen ministry topics.
