Activities for Christian Youth Meetings

New ideas mean fewer same old, done-it-before youth meetings! New activities that teach help us assure our youth "run the race" with their eyes fixed on the principles of the Christian faith.

This website will share free games for Christian youth groups as well as lessons that teach to assist in your youth progams. Please share a Christian youth game or activity you have found to be successful by e-mailing us at Thank you for your interest.

 asks ... Readers and Reviewers Needed for
"The Chest of Visions"

I am offering to reimburse all costs of the purchase and mailing of the book, "The Chest of Visions". This is a special, time-limited offer through the end of March 2017.

The Chest of Visions is a short Christian sci-fi novel - which takes about two to three hours to read.

The book imagines a world, Caperston, in an alternate universe, which is much like earth except for one thing. The residents never had a concept of a superior being, a God. They have a Ruler, who they obey without question.

A prophet appears teaching about the "Unseen Ruler" and people,particularly young people, become followers. Disagreement between the established leaders and the new converts arises.

The book shares Biblical stories as they occur in the alternate universe.

If you are interested in reading and writing a brief review on, it would be most appreciated. The cost of the book is $9.73 plus mailing on It also is available in Kindle electronic format for $7.49. Once again - I will reimburse ALL costs. No questions asked! Simply advise me of your interest and a check will be forwarded to you.

Lets Ask God

Christian youth lesson

This is an activity which provides a means to interact with your youth group. The activity begins with youth picking questions that they would ask God if He were present. This is not as simple as it seems. At first youth tend to be "tongue tied". Once one or two questions are raised, a flood of questions usually follows. The event calls for a few, not many questions, and sometimes a vote can be taken to narrow down the questions to no more than ten. Much can be learned by simply discussing relevant questions youth have.

Upon picking the questions, three adults are chosen to play the role of God. The questions are given to the adults beforehand to allow time for preparation. We always have three individuals playing the role of God. You do not want to have too many "Gods" as progressing through the list of questions will be challenging.

A youth is then chosen to play the role of emcee. The questions, to be answered, are placed into an envelope and randomly drawn by youth in the group. Once read, the emcee asks one of the "Gods" to answer the question to be followed by the other two "God people". Each person answers the question in the first person as if he or she is God. This is important. Adult volunteers are not to say, "I think God would say ..." but rather, "I, God, would say ...". They will not answer, "The Bible, God's word reads ..." but will say, "My word reads ...". Answering the questions in this manner gives a sense of authenticity to the answers.

After all three Gods answer the questions, the emcee opens the discussion to the youth present. One way to encourage discussion is for the emcee to ask if any youth would like to ask a follow-up question. Some questions will lead to more discussion than others and the emcee decides when it is time to move on to a new question.

This event is an effective event to use when meeting with multiple youth programs. Having adults from each program playing the role of God may lead to a more diversified discussion. More details about this event can be found on pages 49-51 of the book, "Not the Same Old, Done -it-before Youth Meetings".
