SuperStart! Tour Kicks Off In Sacramento

September 21, 2015

  • There’s a great mystery coming to town, and preteen students from the Sacramento area will join thousands of others across the country at this year’s SuperStart! tour as they help unravel the clues and discover the greatest truth of all time.

    SuperStart! is the nation’s largest touring preteen event and is designed specifically for fourth-sixth grade students by the nonprofit organization Christ In Youth – headquartered in Joplin, Mo. This season’s tour has 11 locations throughout the fall of 2015 and spring of 2016, and features a mystery play, presented by a group of touring actors and performers. Students attending each event will participate in solving the mystery, joining Inspector Noes as he sifts through the clues to discover the truth of the situation.

    “In today’s world, when a preteen has a question about something they have a fountain of information available to them – online, on TV, in movies, and even at school,” said Drew Crisp, SuperStart! director. “But just because they have knowledge doesn’t mean that knowledge will lead them to the truth. It’s becoming more and more complicated to discern truth for this generation. In fact, it can be a lot like solving a mystery. The SuperStart! team will present a mystery play and then will show preteens how they can use those same detective skills to solve the mystery of knowing the truth in their own lives.”

    More than 15,000 preteen students and adult leaders attended last year’s SuperStart! tour. In addition to the mystery play, students attending the event will participate in age-intentional music led by Christian recording artist Yancy (www.yancynotnancy.com), view theatrical performances and participate in small-group interaction specifically designed to help them understand Biblical concepts in a way that is age appropriate.

    The Sacramento event is the first event of an 11-city tour for SuperStart! It will begin with a main session at 6 p.m., Sept. 25 at Destiny Christian Church – 6900 Destiny Dr. in Rocklin, CA. Approximately 150 students and adult leaders are currently registered to attend. The next event will take place Oct. 16-17 in St. Louis, MO.

     

    SuperStart! was developed 10 years ago by Christ in Youth. It consists of high-energy music, interactive drama and engaging teaching written specifically for preteens (fourth through sixth grades). SuperStart! has annual events in 11 cities across the U.S. during the spring and fall. For more information about SuperStart!, visit www.ciy.com/superstart.
