Publishers Description Funny to serious, shallow to deep, the 500 questions in this book will get teens laughing, thinking and talking about their emotions, beliefs, dreams, and values. Designed to open the door for conversation that will deepen relationships, these questions can be used within families, among friends, or with complete strangers, not just youth groups. Arranged in no particular order, they can be used as time-killers on road trips, icebreakers in small groups, crowd-mixers in large groups, or simply in one-on-one conversations. Sample Questions: What Would You Do . If you had the opportunity to ask your parents one question without feeling embarrassed? If you could do one more thing before going completely blind? If Instant Messaging ended? If you could come up with one way to serve your community this month? If you could write an eleventh commandment?

He is an ordained minister and has been the youth pastor at Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle in Smithtown, NY since 2005. He is a graduate of Elim Bible Institute and Regent University. He has been married to Adriana since 1996. Together they have two daughters, Claudia and Natalia. Kevin loves Jesus, loves teens, and wants to help teens love Jesus.

A tool for your resource box! Feb 10, 2008
After being in and involved with youth ministry for 25 years, this book is a modernized updated to the trusty discussion starter. Kevin uses questions that probe the deeper issues in a young person's life as well as throwing more than enough humor to make it fun and exciting. I recommend his book for all youth workers whether in a church, teacher, YMCA/YWCA, or any organization that touches the hearts of youth today. The questions come from the author's imaginative and creative mind as well as his personal experiences in working with teens and raising kids of his own. The one that gets me is, "What would you do if your father's hobby was collecting rattlesnakes?" Hey, that was me!!!
A GOOD GROUP DISCUSSION HELP Jan 28, 2008
I find this book such a help when I am at loss as to opening a discussion group, especially among young people. The starter questions here open my own inquisitive nature, and give me a good basis for working with small groups. I recommend this for all youth workers and pastors trying to address youthful audiences. Rev. Richard Collingridge
