For Preteens (Grades 5-7)

Our mission is to see preteens develop a close and personal relationship with God, to teach them to grow in their spiritual life and mature as preteens, and to help them discover how God can use them to impact their world.

What is J12?


J12 centers around the message of Jesus at the age of twelve found in Luke 2. Jesus at the age of 12 already had a sense of His identity, His purpose, and His calling. J12 at Sunshine Hills inspires preteens to practice spiritual disciplines. We help them to understand the relational part of a relationship with God. We want the faith of the parents or other influential adults in their lives to become their faith.


We encourage preteens to a high level of social maturity, problem solving and personal responsibility. We expect that what they learn at J12 will be put into practice when they leave the church building.


Our preteens also learn to live the seven words of Jesus that He spoke at the age of 12 “I must be about my Father’s business” (Luke 2:49). We lead them to understand their identity, their purpose, and their calling, so they can live it out passionately whether that’s during their chores at home, their studies at school, or in serving the church and community. J12’s will leave their mark on this world in a positive way.
