Created by Allison Hibbard for Download Youth Ministry:
Every moment we spend with students is an opportunity to create a memory. As youth workers, we hope the memories that stick are of those in which they felt loved and known, but we know that it’s often laughter that helps us break down walls and build trust that leads to the vulnerability which results in life change. Which means that, sometimes, the starting point for a student being open to receiving the gospel is watching you get hit in the face with a dodgeball.
Fun is essential to great youth ministry, but it it’s easier said than done. Let us help you round-out your calendar with trench-tested events… without shouldering the creative process alone!
We gathered up some of our favorite downloadable resources, blog posts and podcast episodes so you can spend more time perfecting your bob-and-weave and less time mapping out the court.
