“We’ve talked to preteen pastors around the country about what it’s like for preteens and what keeps them from sharing their stories,” said Patrick Snow, CIY’s senior director for weekend events. “They don’t feel like they have a story, or there’s fear, or it’s not something they’re motivated to do because they don’t think about sharing their stories with others or even see the purpose behind doing so. Understanding that we all have a story because Jesus died for us is the big picture. When we say ‘conquering Gargantor,’ we’re talking about conquering the difficult things that keep us from sharing the stories of God in our lives.”
SuperStart is intentionally designed to captivate the minds of 11-to-13-year-olds through interactive theatrics. There are characters on stage, and a story that unravels over the course of the weekend, with members of the audience getting to participate along the way.
