You can’t make a kid love God, have faith or care about what really matters. But there are some things you can do.
That’s why we wrote Playing for Keeps. We wanted to talk to parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers) about six things you can give a kid over time that will make a significant impact. These six things can help give a kid the kind of history that will show them why they matter to God.
As part of the 2013 Playing for Keeps Orange Tour, accompanying videos were created to illustrate the important things that kids need over time.
Share these videos with your team, and discuss this question together: What kind of history are you making with the kids and teenagers who are closest to you?
(Please note: These videos originally aired as live webcasts and contain information about contests and giveaways that are no longer available.)
