The question I’m most frequently asked at the start of any given youth night is “What game are we playing tonight?” The truth is that for a number of our youth it’s the things like snacks, social activities, and games that really gain their interest in coming. I challenge you to give them what they come for! Most of our teens come to socialize and have fun. They are mostly unaware of their desire to get anything else out of the youth night. We need to give them exactly what they want, on the surface, as well as what they need in their hearts.
I think many of us tend to slap together some game at the last minute to get the energy out of our youth. Or maybe you’re at the opposite end of the spectrum and you go all out every chance you get, with paint wars or black light dodge ball. Regardless of where you stand, there is great value in youth group games and activities. Here are a few tips to make your games and social events more successful.
