Jon Mccallon

Middle School Pastors Group

6 months, Limited to 6 people

"Middle School ministry is messy, hard, and amazing. I'll help you thrive as you lead students & adults in your church"


Session Overview

For the past 12 years, I have spent all of my time investing into the lives of middle school students, their small group leaders, and paid staff, and along the way learned some invaluable lessons.

This 6 month coaching plan will cover everything from practical skills to pour back into your volunteer leaders to how to walk alongside parents and pull them in. We will have an open session to problem solve your context sensitive issues, and be in God’s Word each time together to learn middle school ministry from Jesus.

1. Volunteer Basics - Practical tools, techniques, and investments for your volunteers.

2. Three identities of a middle schooler and how that impacts your decisions.

3. Ministry Teams - What they are and why you should multiply beyond yourself.

4. Middle School Preaching 101.

5. Investing in Schools - Why it matters and doesn’t add up without the Kingdom.

6. Pastoring the student & their parents.
