Youth Group Games

Here are some of our FREE youth group games.

We’re all about helping youth ministry leaders save time and money. That’s what this website is all about.

These free youth group games save you time because you don’t have to create them from scratch. Most of the games listed here are more than “just for fun” and include a mini-lesson on various topics and Bible passages.

And of course they save you money, because they’re free. Awesome 🙂

In addition to saving you time and money, I’m also excited to help you point students to Jesus with these games.

While all the games linked on this page are free, we do have youth group games and teaching series  for sale here in our online store. All our paid stuff is even bigger and better than the free stuff.

Your role as a youth ministry leader is really important. Whether you’re a full-time youth pastor, bi-vocational youth pastor, small group leader, or whatever role is – YOU have the privilege of pointing students to Jesus. You get to join in on God’s activity in the lives of young people. That’s so cool.

Keep up the great work you’re doing!

  1. Thanks so much for this site! It’s really helpful and sounds really effective, looking forward to trying this with my youth group God Bless

  2. I ordered the huge youth bundle but there is no sign of the lessons anywhere for me to download. It only tells me to purchase again when I sign in. Please email me and let me know what to do!!

  3. Our Kiddos LOVE Death Ball. We get multiple balls going in a circle of 20-30 kids, it’s a blast, easily their favorite! Thanks for the game!

    • You’re right it does. That image is only viewable for you, the youth group leader. Not students. And it highlights how cruel students are to each other. Students will even use much harsher language than that. If it offends you, I apologize. That’s not the desired outcome.

  4. I just started youth leadership for our youth I need games and every thing I can get my hands on please help me ok these kids are very smart and I need all I can get thank you
