  • Dumbledore or Proverbs Youth Group Game
    In this game where we give you a quote and the contestants have to tell us if it’s a quote from the book of Proverbs or a quote from Dumbledore. It’s harder than it looks. Trust us, Harry Potter himself would be stumped by some of these, and so would most of the elders in your church. It’s super-easy to drag these into your presentation software, and the best part is that this game is as much fun to watch as it is to play!

  • Making Announcements Awesome
    People like to laugh. Comedy grabs the attention of audiences like nothing else. Advertising agencies spend millions of dollars to create that 30 second spot on television that will make us laugh and hopefully remember their product. There seems to be something about comedy that causes us to pay attention.
  • Instalife 2-week series
    Another series from Josh Griffin, High School Pastor at Saddleback Church. This series was a huge hit with our students and easily the best-received teaching of the year. If you’ve never used one of Josh’s resources before they are full manuscript outlines and ready for you to edit and teach immediately.
  • 186 Great Youth Group Games
    I believe in games. The Greek philosopher Plato once said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of discussion.” Laughter and recreation break down walls and open opportunities to build relationships and share biblical truths. The purpose of this resource is to help you build relationships with students that will result in an open door for you to speak truth into their lives. The book is organized according to four stages of group building. The portability of the book and bag makes it easy to use in youth meetings, small groups, mission trips, summer camps, or keep in the church van for road trips. 186 games are ready to go with all of the necessary supplies at your fingertips.
