BE BOLD gives your preteens exactly what they need—validation of their faith questions, and a place to connect as they explore those questions together. And we'll guide you every step of the way as you become their conversation guide...and fellow explorer.
They had plenty — including some real mind-benders. Questions about God. About themselves. About where they fit in the world.
They want to talk about faith but may lack the confidence to jump in. They're eager to connect and make a difference but aren't sure how. BE BOLD helps teachers navigate those waters by facilitating meaningful discussion and Bible exploration. Here's how you and your preteens will BE BOLD:
It's not about having all the answers—it's about being willing to listen to kids and explore what Scripture has to say. BE BOLD makes it easy. Simply guide your kids in discussion. We'll lead you every step of the way.
Preteens are at a pivotal point in their faith and wrestling with what they believe. That's why BE BOLD tackles faith questions head-on...even when the answers aren't clear.
BE BOLD turns questions into action and helps kids make a difference. When preteens experience the impact of faith in action, many uncertainties become clear.
Each week you'll tackle a different question that reflects what preteens want to know and need to know.
There's always Bible exploration and a core Bible truth. And your kids will always put what they've learned into action during your meeting time.Watch
Be Bold Curriculum at a Glance
Move your kids from Acceptance > Asking > Action
Each class opens by reminding kids that they — and their struggles — are accepted and welcome.
Kids explore a tough faith question, diving into the Bible to see what God has to say.
Kids make a difference by completing a service activity tied to what they discussed.
Preteens need more than a place to ask questions—they need a community. That’s why BE BOLD is built around the following values:
BE BOLD is high-touch, not high-tech.
Why: Preteens are inundated with technology but starving for relationship. BE BOLD isn’t about learning from a screen—it’s learning through interaction and exploration. It’s real, simple, and genuine.
BE BOLD is welcoming to questions, not afraid of the unknown.
Why: It takes courage to admit that you have questions about faith—and to learn that questions are a good thing! By creating a safe environment for questions, BE BOLD helps kids draw closer to God.
BE BOLD is discussion, not fill-in-the-blank answers.
Why: Some questions about faith don’t have clear answers. The important thing is to learn how to explore what the Bible DOES say, and come to conclusions through discussion and Bible exploration.
BE BOLD is empathetic, not condescending.
Why: Preteens are at a developmental stage where they see the world has big problems—and faith is more complicated than they thought. Their questioning is what allows preteens to own their faith.
BE BOLD takes preteens seriously and embraces the chance to learn and grow with them.
Some BE BOLD questions are doozies, but we can’t ignore them. Left unaddressed, they become faith blockers, and kids can get stuck in their faith journey.
Here’s the good news: You don’t have to have all the answers. In fact, if you pretend you do, your kids will see straight through you. BE BOLD helps you shift from teacher to facilitator. You’ll learn how to guide important conversations, with Bible exploration taking front and center.
As a BE BOLD leader, you get tons of support and helpful tools...
Lessons rely heavily on the Student Book.
In this unique student workbook, kids are asked to cut, draw, fold, crumple, and craft—turning these pages into one-of-a-kind creations. Step-by-step instructions make life easy for you. So does having most of your class supplies tucked between the covers of student workbooks!
By the end of each quarter, kids will have a series of colorful creations they’ve taken home to share with others.
When you have an adventure with Jesus, you build an unshakable faith foundation. That’s why BE BOLD includes Mystery Missions: Every week, preteens head out with a sealed mission to open at home—one that reinforces the week’s Bible truth and invites kids into an adventure with Jesus.
Leaders have the same mission—giving adults and kids something to talk about when they next get together.
Mystery Missions come with the Student Book as part of the Student Pack.
BE BOLD fearless preteen curriculum requires one Leader Guide per class, and one Student Pack per student. As students will use the pages of their books to complete each week’s activity, it is vital that each student has their own book.
BE BOLD Student Packs include: Bold Action Student Book, Mystery Mission Cards, and Mystery Mission Stickers. Other basic classroom supplies (tape, scissors) are needed but not included. A classroom poster stating the Class Values is available and suggested, as you and your kids will recite these values each week.
At Concordia Supply, it is our mission to equip churches and ministry leaders with high-quality Christian resources that transform lives for Christ.
