Leadership Opportunities for 14 Year Olds
An additional opportunity is provided for 14 year olds who could “graduate” to the Youth Ministry (9th Grades – College), but who chose to remain with our program to assist with the "RAD Team" (Raising Adolescent Disciples). See www.radproject.us
These youth become our 'Tweens program assistants, helping lead the Bible studies, discussion groups and other activities. They serve as peer role models to the younger students.
