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.

Before you check out the free games linked on this page…

Be sure to download this 5 pack of free games:

These free games include a quick Bible lesson, or you can play them just for fun.

We also have youth ministry games available in our store.

Here’s the featured bundle in our store:

Among Us Combo Pack: In this bundle, you get the Among Us in-person game AND our new Among Us 4-week teaching series.

Get our Among Us youth ministry series and the Among Us youth group game

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!

    Your message about bullying has foul language on one of the pictures.

    • September 9, 2016 at 10:27 pm

      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.
