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
Awesome….glad you found us 🙂
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!!
Bailey, go here to troubleshoot https://ministrytoyouth.com/download-area/ and if you still have trouble, contact Becky at email@example.com. She’ll hook you up!
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!
That’s awesome. It’s a really great game. Our students love it every time we play!
Very useful and nice.
just wanted to say thank you guys – picking up great stuff here
Your message about bullying has foul language on one of the pictures.
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.
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
Awesome…you’re welcome 🙂

Great info. Lucky me I discovered your site by accident (stumbleupon).
I’ve book-marked it for later!
Do you have any virtual games that you recommend as part of the Fierce bundle? The games there are neat, but would like some other options. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing this great youth ministry game! This is an excellent resource for church members and I can use it to improve my Sunday School lessons in the future. This serves as great inspiration.
