Reviews - What do customers think about Best Ever Games For Youth Ministry (ORD SPEEDY#073?
Fun and Games Apr 8, 2010
Scattered throughout this book are Gaming Tips, which give essential suggestions and insights on everything from choosing, beginning, to leading a game. I am new to leading a group of 8-12 yr. old girls in my church. I am not very creative when it comes to games and activities I am more of a preacher. So, I was looking for some help. This book gave me great ideas. I don't use every game, because some will not work. For the most part I have been using a new game within this book each week. There are about two to three games per page. Especially the last chapter on how NOT to lead games with your youth group was great. I am new to this and need all the advice I can get! I highly recommend this book for new and exciting games to play with your youth!
Great Games indeed! Feb 8, 2009
This book is awesome. It is so helpful, and uses very minimal additional items outside of what you have lying around so it is easy and desirable to get good use out of it. I recommend it to anyone who has kids or works in youth ministry. It is outstanding!
Use It Over and Over Jul 9, 2008
We are always looking for easy and fun game ideas for youth- especially games with a point. I appreciate the fact that these games have been tested so we don't have to make our youth the "guinea pigs". Helpful hints are included throughout the book from the author to help make your games more successful. Furthermore, we learn how to avoid problems and common pitfalls during our game experiences. What a great resource to have on the shelf....I imagine we'll be pulling it out quite often over the years.
okay, but nothing new Feb 29, 2008
I think I expected some fresh ideas from this book. What I found were numerous game ideas I've seen before. Its a new cover on previously published material. I would say that the last chapter on how NOT to lead games with your youth group was useful.
Really the BEST-EVER! Dec 14, 2007
I have been coordinating our church youth group for a year and a half and am still finding new, terrific games from this book. They are all fun games and many don't need lots of prep/supplies. I also have mostly a small group- about 5-10 so there are lot of games they can play. It is even great for our one large event of the year- our Lock-In. The big group games in there are great for 30 or so kids. If you have anything to do with a youth ministry or just need to entertain a big group of kids with safe, healthy, fun activities- GET THIS BOOK!
