I found everything I needed - games, a devotional, fun ideas, all in one place!
God bless you and your ministry!!!!

Thanks for the site. Our church is planning to open an outreach center downtown (small Texas town). We will serve youth in the area with Bible study and art classes as well as begin overnight worship with groups of girls/ women members as leaders and later boys with men members as leaders of the events. The information I've encountered on your blog is WONDERFUL!
Thanks so much!

Just had to tell you that your work in this world is so very much appreciated on this side of the world..............Tasmania,Australia. I work with unchurched boys and find your recourse so helpful...to the point,just what I need. Thank you so much for making it available for free. We are having to fundraise all the time and money is tight.We hire a recreation centre and the boys from 4,5and6th grades flock. It is in a low socio-economic area so we have to offer the ministry for next to nothing. Object lessons are perfect too as they really help to bring home simple point about the Christian faith. Thanks again,Mike Lizotte,Gateway Ministries Devonport,Tasmania

I enjoyed your site very much. I am involved in Young Adults Ministry in our church and had been using your sites for icebreakers... got hooked on it and was very glad ive found it.
Just today while browsing i've found the flash presentation of the Bamboo - Galatians... Is it possible to download it ... i'd love to use it on our Leadership Fellowship on Tuesday (Elders, Deacons & Ministry Servants with Spouse plus the Pastoral Staff) ... it would be lovely to encourage them.
thanks a lot. hope to hear from you soon. The Lord bless you!

Just thought you might like to check out this most valuable resource for youth groups. For more than twelve years The Blacklight Theatre of the Mighty Warrior has traveled around the US working with all types of churches. Since the youth as well as adults are so visually oriented-this production has been used by lots of youth groups as well as youth conventions. The production uses those from the host group as the full cast as well as crew. This makes for a great opportunity for the youth to learn how the visual arts can be effectively used in ministry.
When you get the chance- look up:

Hi! I teach Junior High Sunday School and have a new curriculum this year (that I did not get to pick) which did not exactly start off with a bang… So I used a couple of your games – measuring smiles and the Bob name game. Thanks for sharing the resources! They really got us off to a nice start. (Mostly new sixth graders this year). I think kids that are laughing are more ready to learn than those who are bored!

My name is Dayton Brattin and I pastor Mission Baptist Church in Washburn Missouri.
I wanted to send you a quick e-mail to thank you for your ministry and website. On Sunday mornings we have what I call children's church in which consists of me doing a short lesson or devotion with the children. And sometimes it is very difficult for me to come up with great children's sermons, and sometimes I feel because of my lack of creativity I don't give the children the best they deserve. However, through your ministry and website you help me to come up with some very good children's sermons. So I want to say a great big thank you! And keep up the great work.
Because He lives,
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

I hear what you are saying. God works in amazing ways and those youth who may not seem to be there for the right reasons, or at least we think. Who knows if that one time they come and all of a sudden things are made real for them through something. some helpful hints: 1. Call your youth group youth ministry. I believe that a youth group can be anything; however, a youth ministry speaks much more to the church and your teens. 2, create a mission statement for your group. Have the kids do this at a meeting night with some ideas you research on or you may find or maybe you need to create it. 3. have a name for your youth ministry...Ours is The CAVE which is Christ Amassadors as liVing Example. The kids love it! It sounds fun and has a great message and right away lets visitors know who you are and that you are for real. Finally, with most of your activities-have welcome,word, work, worship, witness. these can be done in any manner. I play Christian music in the background while we are doing a crazy games and the kids now know some of the songs and will sing along..and you have your worship. These are just some ideas to create your youth as a ministry and not simply as a group who comes to hang out for fun activities. Pray for your group at the end of a session even the ones that you may not know. They find it wired; however, it does stick with them that there are people that care even though they don't know them. Isn't that what Jesus' does for us? God's blessings in your ministry.

Thanks for the New Year's ideas. We used some of your icebreaker games at our New Year's Lock-in. Lots more youth brought friends (lots more than I expected, that is), so it was neat to have "undercurrent" games helping youth mix. We played the game with New Year's Hats and the one that you suggested garlands for. We used glow-in-the-dark bracelets instead of the garlands, which they liked. No one knew what "forfeits" were for the hat game, but they enjoyed watching each other perform them. One youth got wrapped up in Christmas paper (instead of toilet paper) with a lot of extra masking tape to hold it all together. Good fun! Our prize for the bracelet game was a box full of silly string and noisemakers for midnight (prize awarded at 11:50pm). Thanks for the great ideas. I just stumbled across your site in my searching for this activity, but I'll be back! :o)

I love working with youth, so I said I would continue the youth program for a while in her absence. I have been able to have a great time with these youth along with teaching them! They are having a blast too and wonder where I am coming up with all these fun games and lesson plans.
Thank you very much for saving our youth program!

I teach religious education to junior high kids at a Catholic church in Dallas. Your site has been such a blessing to us because it enables me to find games that make the lesson fun!
So far I've used a Christmas poem based on the Alphabet.
The "I Never" icebreaker game was a lot of fun, and we used it as an intro to our New Year's lesson where they made resolutions and made plans to do positive things that they had never done before.
Another good one was the empty box lesson. We did that one before Christmas, and it was a real shock to them when they opened the box...but it was a lesson that I think will stay with them for a long time.
This is my third or fourth year teaching Sunday School, and I have never found a site that it more helpful than yours!
I'll keep giving you feedback as I try new things.
January 19, 2007 08:17 AM

I used one of your ideas tonight. "I Doubt It" It was great. I am a lay person that helps with the youth. I usually just show up and the youth minister leads. He came down with the flu today, so I had to come up with something fast. The discussion was really good afterwards. It helped us get to the "meat of the matter."

I find your website very informative,
and will definitely use it again and again.
Right now there is a great need in our fellowship and community, to keep
the youth active.
As from the ages of 9years old the children are addicted to drugs and
prostituion and unemployment is rife.
So be for sure we will use your great ideas, I was like a kid in a candy
store when I surfed your website and cannot wait to tell the others
Be blessed and I will keep in touch.
Yours to count on

This looks like an excellent site! I am an Awana Sparks Director for about 100 kids ages K-2 and from time to time, I have to come up with ideas for devotions when I am unable to have someone else teach. This site has some excellent ideas for larger groups, as well as some thought-provoking comments for leaders of youth. I plan to read some of the comments at my leaders' meeting tomorrow night.
Thanks for being willing to share these at no cost to other churches and ministries.

As children's coordinator I am responsible for gathering materials for a multitude of classes, programs, and lessons. I teach Sunday School, lead a children's ministry during the morning worship hour, am responsible for the 2nd Sunday children's minutes, and I am constantly looking for quick and easy lesson prompts to get those classes going. I had a program to do in just a couple hours and was looking on the internet for some ideas. I just happened up on your website after Googling and found a never ending fountain of wonderful material. This has got to be the best site I have ever visited! Even though this site talks about youth, it is great for children as well. I found your "Blind Snowman" lesson and did this with a program with 7 and 8 year old kids. They had a great time trying to draw the snowman with their eyes closed. I expounded on the lesson and talked about people being blind in their faith versus those who trust in God and put his word in their heart. We talked about having low scores and high scores and how we score with God. Thank you so much for sharing what God has given to you with the rest of us. May God continue to pour out His blessings on you.

In the community that we live, we don't have access to many resources
like this. It's a great help to know that we can use this as a basis
to work from when we run out of ideas to keep our young people excited
about their christianity.
All the best for your future plans,

Thanks for the site. It's been very helpful in my ministry. Since finding your site, it seems that I am going directly to it even with all the other youth ministry sites on the web. I enjoy all the very creative ideas of teaching God's word to students.

I'm pastor and just recently our youth minister left and guess who's doing youth now. It's been 25yrs since that has happened and didn't know so much has changed with youth and their generation. It's kind of funny because now I'm listening to KSBJ (Praise & Worship) radio along with an assortment of CD's the youth have introduced me to. My wife and I both seem to be living a younger life, if you know what that means. We're more excited and are going more than we have in years. It's been good for us. But most of all, I've come to realize the hurting young lives that I've been brushing past each day and did not know how vulnerable they were to failure and disappointments. I want to do all that I can for the rest of my life to help our young generation rise above the spiritual poverty they exist in. God bless our youth in Jesus name, amen.
Thank you for making you resources available to help us reach our youth and keep them interested in Godly living. God bless you today in Jesus name, amen.

Your site is awesome and thank you. The reason I was looking for these kinds of sites is I organize crafts and things for our Sunday School and am always looking for new things. The older group in our small class consists of 6 - 9 kids and its hard to find ideas and things for that age sometimes. I sent your address to the teacher of that class so between the 2 of us we should be able to really come up with good lesson plans. Thanks again.

When I came across your site I was so excited with all the ideas. You helped me come up with very creative games & more. We had a Candy cane themed Christmas party with all your candy cane ideas & the kids had a blast. Thank you so much for your time & dedication to helping all of us who work with the youth find Great creative ideas. I really appreciate it!

Hi Ken, I am very pleased I found your site. I have had a lovely time collecting Resources for the Youth Camp I am going to today. We will have around 60 teenagers together for a week to do a little sowing of the Seed!!!
I am a 55 year old grandmother with 7 children that have now turned into adults!!! 5 have married giving us 5 wonderful additions plus 8 grandsons and 3 granddaughters - precious souls. God works in amazing ways generationally!!!
Our youngest son Jon is 15 and will drive for the first time on a 2-3 hour journey to Foxton Bible Camp in an area known as Manawatu in the North Island of New Zealand. We have a great old Mercedes (1987) and he is very excited by the prospect!!!
Sometimes I am concerned at the content of the 'Concerts' that are traditionally held on the last night at 'Camp' so this time I have been on the lookout for something more appropriate! Loved the jokes on your site and have picked up one or two other bits and pieces that I hope my Study Group in particular will enjoy using.
Very pleased to find some Resource material for a Grief Programme I will be facilitating for 16+17 year olds next school term on feelings and masks too! Excellent stuff!!!
Thank You for your service for God... Anne Robinson

I think this website is a wonderful resource. I teach an adult ladies Sunday School class and they love object lessons as much as teenagers do! I am always looking for creative ways to bring the lessons to life so the ladies will remember the truths I am teaching from God's word!

I discovered your site by accident while looking for ideas and inspiration for my children's youth club at church. I'm working with some other mom's on crafts, and was hoping to bring more of a lesson/food for thought to tie the craft to their faith. I loved the stories of inspiration and the inclusion of a verse at the end of each. I brought some in to share with the other mom's during our planning time, and we were really able to use some of the ideas as starting points for lessons to make the most of our time with the kids.
I've shared your site with all of them, and I'm sure we will all return later in the year in search of other ideas.
Thank you for creating the website, it is easy to navigate and there is so much there to explore.

Sometimes I would get stuck with a topic and I would simply just pop onto your website and get everything I need that would be able to edify the young people I work with. I just feel like sometimes I hit an all time blank. Please pray for me.

Your website has been a tremendous blessing to me. I am a new pastor and have a small amount of youth that I am trying to reach out to and help to grow.

I am making Great use of this site. My husband and I pastor a small Pentecostal church in out-port Newfoundland where resources are very limited and we have a 4 hour drive to the nearest Christian book store. There are about a dozen in our youth group right now, but it's nearly doubled in the last few months. This generation is very difficult to minister to, but your website is certainly taking them in the right direction.

I just wanted to thank you for allowing me access to your site. It has truly been a blessing.
I am an associate minister in Huntsville,Alabama and I occassionally have to do the counsel time for our AWANA Ministry's "Theme Night". This time last year I used your idea about the pumpkin and God walking through the pumpkin patch (can't remember the exact name of it); but it really reached the children (ages 3-16) and many adults in ways that I never could have imagined.They are actually still talking about it to this day. I thank you so much.

I am a new youth worker in a small bible church in Colorado. Don't have any
qualifications to be a youth worker i.e. Education from a seminary, have
kids, or had any kind of experience of any kind with a youth group. The
only thing I have is a calling from God to do what I can for them. I have
been searching like a mad man on how to conduct, plan, mentor, teach, all
for the purpose of bettering myself.
Your site is a huge help. Thanks for putting it together.

My name is Andrew Antonio Fernandez and I am in Cochin India. I attend the Master Ministries Church here. It a full gospel based church. My wife Priscilla and myself are involved in the church activities and our Pastor wanted us to take up the Youth movement. With no prior experience in this but God's and Pastor's blessings and of course now help from you we are confident of doing something worthwhile for the youth of Cochin.

I used animal kingdom with my youth to let them learn how much God cares for them in a fun way. I added giving them snacks that related to the animal of their group choice.

Love the website. Tonight for our youth lesson, I used the Parable #2 lesson, where Jesus washes His disciples' feet in John 13:1-7. God laid it on my heart to relate it to serving others and actually "doing" rather than just "saying." We lived out the lesson and ended it by getting supplies for Operation Christmas Child and actually serving instead of just talking about serving. Thanks for letting God use you!

challenge, especially in youth group, is to get to youths to enjoy the service. Sometimes they don't seem interested and just come to get out of the house. This year we are aiming to make a change in their lives.
I'm currently checking out your website and so far it's very helpful. If you have any more ideas feel free to email me. Thanks for all your help

I just want you to know that you and your web site has been a blessing to me!!! I am to teach our JH/HS Sunday school classes, and I was not happy with the curriculum provided through our church. I needed to find something that was good, and since I live far away from a big Christian bookstore, i went on line to search. Well, one of my favorite books of the Bible is Philippians!! In my heart, I wanted to teach that book, but i also wanted to have some aides in doing so. As I searched the web a second time, i found your web site, and there with a green dot beside it was a study of the book of Philippians!! I was rejoicing as I read all 8 lessons!! They are wonderful!! I used the first one last Sunday, and the students seemed to enjoy it. I did get a little feedback and it was positive.
Our youth pastor resigned and the SS Superintendent asked me to teach. I love to teach and share the great love of God. I know that I was blessed and learned as I studied. And I truly believe that God was working in the hearts of our youth Sunday morning. Our goal is to learn all the memory verses assigned for all 8 lessons. What fun it will be to tie them up this Sunday, just like Paul had been tied up. Hope i can get them to sing and pray as Paul did when he was imprisoned!!
Again, thank you SO MUCH for your web site. The address is in my "favorites" column!
Blessings to you! "I thank my God everytime I remember you." Phil. 1:3

Thank you for all the work you have put into your web-site!!! There are so many creative and helpful ideas and lessons. My husband and I have been involved with pre-teens for years and we love it!!!! Although I have plenty of teaching skills and all the kids LOVE my husband, we are not the most creative couple! Having a resource like your site is tremendous in our efforts to keep our classes fun and interesting as well as including the Bible.
Yesterday for our class we used your Valentines day idea. We made the posters where the kids had to write what Love is..... and see which team came up with the most words. We also had them build a heart tower together on separate teams with the candy hearts. For their at home assignment we ask them to memorize 1Cor 13:4-7.
Thank you for your heart concerning our youth!!!!! Have a great day!

I have absolutely enjoyed your website, I've "borrowed" one of the ideas on the site for my kids and I think I'll use some more and try to contribute a few. A little bit about me, I have been in youth ministry for seven years now at St. Kieran Catholic Church in Shelby Twp, MI. Thank you for providing all of us with ideas that will help us guide our kids toward the message of love that God continues to provide.

I am involved with an independent church in Kuilsriver, Cape Town. I am presently at a Bible college called "Cornerstone Christian College" in Cape Town (www.cornerstone.org.za), where I am in my third year of studying for my degree in theology. I have enjoyed what you have had to say and look forward to using it far more frequently in the future.
My wife who is employed as a school's book keeper ,has managed to find time to get involved with the disciplining of a group of children between the ages of 9 and10. She will also be using and leaning on your skills.

I am a Sunday school teacher at our church for 3-5 year olds. I am also on the missions/outreach committee.
I just found your website in looking for something different to do for a lesson on the day we did our Easter egg hunt. I chose to do the object lesson with the tea bag. The children ranged in age from 3-10 and even 6 adults,they loved it.I plan on using more of the lessons you have to teach my Sunday school class.
Thanks for the time you spend in putting together this great website.I know God uses people for His purpose and God has certainly used you.
April 8, 2008 10:15 PM
Thank you for making this site available to all.
April 8, 2008 10:24 PM
I was about to write to you but I was still going through the website. It is EXACTLY what I wanted. It has so many ideas. I am about to give a retreat to a group of 15 year old boys from the high school where I serve as campus minister and I desperately wanted idea to make the retreat interesting. Your website has solved my problem.
I am a Roman Catholic nun, and serve as the Campus Minister at St. George's College, a high school for boys in Kingston Jamaica. The older boys have to make a retreat as part of their graduation requirement. The younger boys have Days of Prayer. At first I thought that the school's policy of compulsory retreats and days of prayer was not a good idea, but I have come to see that for many of them, it is the only time they get to come to encounter God. You know however, that straight talks would not work with teenagers so I have to come up with ideas to present the message of Christ, but to make it fun and interesting at the same time. Thank you very much.

I did enjoy your site and will probably use it more in the future.
I am the Children's ministry leader at Kloof Harvest Christian Fellowship in Kloof, Durban, South Africa, On Fridays we have Junior Youth. We have divided the ages 6 - 10 (called "Buzz) and 11 - 13 (called Globe). God is doing a big thing in the children's ministry and we have up to 200 children come on Fridays. The Youth leaders in our church help as well as a lot of adults. To make Fridays really exciting we need ideas to draw the children in and that was what I was looking for when I came upon your site.

I have used your ministry ideas (in Japanese) in a church plant an hour outside of Tokyo and have had great response. I tend to work with younger kids but a lot of the ideas translate well. Your endorsement of http://www.kidssundayschool.com/ got me registered and connected with their resources also – I’m very grateful for your advice there also. Thanks for providing such quality ministry, it’s helped me greatly.

I LOVE THIS SITE!!! I am using this site to prepare curriculum for children ages 3 - 8 who are getting an age-appropriate lesson while their families attend the last half of the worship service. I use your site as a springboard for lessons that mirror the sermon the grown-ups are getting. I also use the site to gather object lessons to go along with my husband's sermons. Then, I cut and paste them into an email for him to deliver to the kids at the front of the church just before they leave to go back to hear what I (and this website) came up with. Then, a dash of other info & a craft and we are good to go!
THANK YOU for the time you spend sharing your creative ideas!!!

I said i am an Evangelist called to go to Ghana for a missionary work but i am still preparing because God has showed me my life partner in the University Campus Fellowship Unimaid. But the Pastor that i am under him wanted to put hand on my marriage to distract the programme of God. But i told them that God has interest in my marriage they should not temper with the marriage committed to do any politics.
I told them to call me and the Sister to give us advice that if to say i need to have patience again i can still do it, because i had a patience about 3 years and now the Sister will be graduating this year.

I got married straight out of high school at 18. I have two boys, Dawson 4, and Mason 2.
Being youth director has been especially difficult for me.
I am desperately Trying to come up with new creative ideas to reach out to our small community, and your website is a big help.
Right know I am trying to pull off my first VBS.
I needed to come up with some ideas that could work for all ages. As you see, I need a lot of help and I have searched Everywhere.
Your website was a tremendous help. Very detailed and has given me a little boost. With the help of your website, I am going
To work hard and maybe God will use me to make a difference in these kids lives. I am not concerned with numbers as long as I can reach at least one.
Thanks again, your website is great. May God Bless You!

I work in the Released Time Christian Education to the public schools through our church Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, CA. We use curriculum that has been around since the 70's when I taught in Child Evangelism Back Yard Bible Clubs. It is good...presents the Word of God and the gospel...but it is very outdated. I have been looking for ways to bring the truth of these lessons more up to date. Your web page is a blessing, giving me insights and materials that will bring new life to the lessons. Thank you for sharing your ideas with people like myself. May God continue to bless your work.

i haven't used any ideas yet, but will let you know, I am excited to read through it and will use it for our youth. Some of the ideas we are using to keep our youth going, our youth choir sings on every communion sundays, and the saturday before communion sunday we have a community service by picking up trash and mowing the side of the road. we have gotten great responses from the people and the youth really enjoys it.

Basically our base here focuses on training, and have various ministries but the outstanding one is the "youth Chaplaincy" which I am very much involved in.

I found an awesome site called TeenAspect.com
It is a site created by teenagers for other young aspiring entrepreneurs. According to their website the idea of TeenAspect is too give a place for all the guys and girls who are teen entrepreneurs to log on and communicate to one another about anything and everything to do with business.
They hope people at TeenAspect can compliment each other with advice, comments and feedback on anything business related. If you are aiming to launch a business at a young age it is often hard to gain good honest advice about a concept or even some help from a person or an individual who has been there before. With TeenAspect they are pulling people from all over the globe, to share stories coach and mentor each other to help realise the potential of an idea.
Powered by the community it really does deliver great content that is meaningful and relevant to you.
If you are interested in the internet the I definitely suggest visiting the site to see what they have to offer!
Visit http://www.teenaspect.com/ - www.teenaspect.com - Hope you enjoy it!
