The Gillette Games

What do you get when you mix teenagers, a giant tarp, and 100 cans of shaving cream? A crazy, fun filled night of memories for teens.

Gillette Games was an annual event at a church where I took a youth ministry position. It may have been a sacred cow but after experiencing it, it was a sacred cow that I wasn’t going to kill. Back then, GG was something that we did just for fun and to let loose. At my current church, we use the Gillette Games to do multiple things. It’s a chance to connect with students who haven’t been in awhile. It’s a chance to connect with our students' friends. It’s also a chance to make memories and have some fun in the process.

Letter to Yourself

You’re a student, you’re facing the pressures of school, home, friends and dating. Some of you are struggling, wrestling with parents fighting, divorce, temptation from friends, feelings of failure, self-image issues, and the list goes on. And the midst of all this you’re even stressing about where to go to college or what to do with you life. You’re not sure about your future and what it would look like in terms of success as the world sees it. Some days you don’t even want to think about what’s ahead.

Beyond the 1 Month Challenge

The A.O.G. has launched a project to encourage students to carry their Bible everywhere they go all the time for one month. And while this challenge can be done anytime of the year, they have launched it for the month of September to coincide with the beginning of the new school year and SYATP (See You At The Pole). Great idea!

Best Youth Group Activity EVER

I’ve been spending time lately meeting with a youth pastor that works not to far from where I live. We’ve been talking about purpose and aligning all the “stuff” of youth ministry around a guiding purpose.

Last week she told me about a youth group activity she came up with to help reinforce the lesson from their Bible study. It was a simple idea, but I thought it was the best activity ever!
