Being a youth ministry leader isn’t easy. We exist to make your job easier by saving you time and money.

Our team is full of experienced youth leaders who work hard creating lessons, games and other resources for you. That way, you can spend more time on building relationships with students, volunteers and parents.

The goal is to provide lots of free games and lessons so you don’t have to create them from scratch.

We’ve also created youth ministry resources that cost a little money, which you can view here.

We encourage you to make all our resources “your own”, infusing them with your creativity. After all, you know your students better than us 🙂

This website provides resources for youth ministry leaders who work with teenagers.

If you’re looking for resources specifically for middle school students (6th-8th grade), then visit our sister site – JuniorHighMinistry.org

If you need resources for preteen ministry (4th-6th grade), the visit our other sister site – PreteenMinistry.net

What do we believe?

All our lessons are theologically broad enough for all church denominations (and non-denominations). We stay central to the core truths of Christianity and don’t focus  on denominational differences.

Hi, I’m Nick Diliberto, the creator of this website – Ministry to Youth.

I’m also the creator of PreteenMinistry.net & JuniorHighMinistry.org. As you can probably guess, I’m passionate about equipping church leaders to do ministry! Actually, that’s what I do full-time now…fun 🙂 Yes, I get the awesome privilege of serving the church through my various websites. It’s been a really humbling experience!

About Me: I have over 19 years of experience in church leadership working with students, preteens and kids. Most of that time I was in a full-time role. I live just outside of New Orleans, and am married to Jena Diliberto & have three kids – Ethan (16), Joey (14) & Emma (12).

I recently launched a program in my community, which equips teenagers to launch an online business. The first group of students I am mentoring launched a company called NexTrax. They started the company as 12 and 13 year olds. They’re creating a product that allows people to track anything from everyday objects, to pets or small children using a custom built smartphone app linked to a tracking device. Pretty cool stuff.

You shared some really awesome games that are easy to implement and have a great message! We have a limited budget so freebies are always greatly appreciated!

    I was asked by 3 teachers to cover for their classes in the same day. I home school 3 children and they are used to my “tricks”. Finding this site was a God send! I am SO looking forward to springing these wonderful ideas on the kids! I burst out laughing when I read one of them (Noodle Jousting). That alone has their curiosity piqued. I thank God for folks like you who, are not only passionate about training up a child in the way he should go, but are also willing to share it with others. May God bless and multiply.

    I’ll be honest, usually when I am surfin’ the web for good devotionals and games for my youth group, I’m left feeling hopeless knowing that everything I find isn’t relevant enough or engaging enough for my youth. BUT THIS SITE IS AWESOME. You guys do a phenomenal job of connecting scripture to relevant topics for youth to connect to and apply to their own stories. And for free?! What a blessing! Keep doing what you’re doing!!
    Thanks so much and God bless.
    Peace,
    Heidi

    Hey Nick, I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving this year!

    I appreciate everything you do for this website. It is already helped me tremendously in my ministry as a youth pastor.

    The big things in my ministry that I want to focus on his mission work. I was wondering if you knew of a good website that had testimonies of Christians all around the world who have little to nothing but continue to show praise and worship to God. I’m wanting to show clips and testimonies as part of my gratitude lessons for the next couple weeks To hopefully inspire my youth to have that debacle attitude such as Joseph, Job, and Paul.

    Thanks for your time,
    Kent Kirby

      Try Voice of the Martyr’s website. They have great testimonies from persecuted believers who have nothing and yet continue to rejoice in Jesus!

    I really like what you are doing here. I am interested in knowing if you have anything developing for youth AND parent study/activities together. I am sensing that “family fun night” is more common among “Gen Z”, and hanging with family, than the trend to merely have “youth group”. Also, communication between Adult/Teen in these activities can be really hellpful, I feel. Please let me know if you have – or if you can guide me where to look. God’s Blessings to you!

    I would like to teach the silent charades remix tomorrow – what kind of props to use?

    Reply
    • October 15, 2017 at 11:29 pm
      Permalink

      Hi Jill! The props can really be anything that you can find lying around the church or place that you meet. After collecting the items, you would compose a list of words or phrases that the props can be used to demonstrate.

      For example, if you had a light bulb and a hat, you could write down the phrase “put on your thinking cap”. The students would use the props, act out the phrase, and let the other students guess the phrase.

      I hope that helps!
