10 iPhone Apps Youth Workers Might Find Useful
Just thought I’d share a few of my apps that get me by when I am in a pinch. Am I missing an important app that would be beneficial for youth workers? Let me know.
Creative Whack Pack- This is a fun way to take old ideas and see them through a new lens. Nice for the price, considering I paid $20 for the actual card pack.
Receipts Lite- Ever get in trouble for not turning in your receipts? This will help you budget and get those receipts in. For more detail, get the paid app.
Guitar Tool Kit - I have to fill in sometimes to play for worship. This app is great for me because it has a tuner and a ton of chords I can look up.
Atomic Fart- Need I say more?
You Must Choose- Fun digital version of the Would You Rather books. Great for road trips or small group openers.
IBook- This is a pretty good app for reading books on your phone. You can save your page, highlight paragraphs, and make notes.
POW- This is a fun app and a different way to post pics of your students. You can make short comic strips complete with dialogue bubbles. Oh the stories you could tell.
Fluent News- This is a great app because is culls major news organizations and picks top stories. You can also check stories by categories and save the stories you like in a folder.
Story Cubes- This is a fun tool to get kids to make a story. Shake your phone and roll the dice. Each student has to take a die and make the word on the die part of the group story.
Word Twiddle- Feeling stuck for a word or thought? This random little tool may jog your memory. I use this sometimes when thinking about new names for youth programs.

I've always wanted to be a youth pastor and minster to teens at all levels. Youth pastors, along with camp counselors, have been my heroes. I have been ministering to students now for 20 years and started a free resource sight called The Disciple Project at www.thediscipleproject.net. Come by and say hello.
I live in Birmingham, AL. with my wife and thee great kids, two of which are teenagers.
