— Why We Do What We Do —
Creative Youth Ideas exists to support youth leaders, youth workers, and ministers who don’t have a huge budget or a lot of time to find resources or who live in parts of the world with no access to youth resources. We believe that great ideas can point people to a God that changes lives. It doesn’t matter where you are, which church you’re a part of which denomination you’re in, whether you represent a religious or not-for-profit organization, if you’re young or old, experienced in or new to youth ministry, we want to help you help youth. YOUth are on our heart and YOUth are our ministry.
— How We Do What We Do —
Creative Youth Ideas is committed to helping youth grow in maturity and in their relationship with God and their communities all over the world. We’ve taken what we’ve learnt from our years of involvement and experience in youth ministry and made all of those resources we’ve accumulated available to you. We have camp curriculums, small group discussions, game ideas, creative teaching ideas, illustrations, object lessons and everything else that you need to build a strong youth ministry.
— What We Do —
We support God’s servants, ministers, and leaders (that’s You!) by creating resources and great ideas that anyone can use to change the lives of young people in their country, city, and community. We make these resources freely available and easily accessible to anyone with a heart and passion for youth ministry, youth missions and not-for-profit organizations everywhere (at least everywhere with an Internet connection).
