D. Disciple Making Tools for Children:
– Groups that learn playfully: Sunday School, Bible Studies, Church Camp.
E. Bridging: Children are found in groups that offer learning opportunities. The indicator of readiness to move from Child to Teen level is less pleasant and typically restlessness, dissatisfaction, and the feeling that something more is needed. They have mastered this level and are now looking for something more challenging; provide them with that challenge.
