Youth ministry programs

Activities for Christian Youth Meetings

Would you share an activity, whether a Christian youth lesson (to teach) or a Christian youth game or icebreaker (for fun), that can be included on this site in the future? If you wish to receive recognition for your idea, please leave your name, state or country your reside in and, if you wish, your e-mail address.

New ideas mean fewer same old, done-it-before youth meetings! New activities that teach help us assure our youth "run the race" with their eyes fixed on the principles of the Christian faith.

This website will share free games for Christian youth groups as well as lessons that teach to assist in your youth progams. Please share a Christian youth game or activity you have found to be successful by e-mailing us at Thank you for your interest.

Please feel free to visit our guest book and leave feedback.


Activities That Teach

So how did January 1st become New Years Day for most of the world? It was established by Roman emperor Julius Caesar in 46 BC as the Romans believed their God, Janus, could see backwards and forwards in time. The believers offered sacrifices and pledged good contact over the coming year to Janus. In a sense their pledge was an early form of making a New Year's Resolution.

Activity One: Bible Support for Making a Resolution

Activity Two: The Last Word of Jesus

The rhetoric is too high ... too nasty. Christians, whatever your political persuasion, Christian youth ministry needs Trust and Prayer at this time. I fear for the future of our world. We need to speak up. Christ calls us in Matthew chapter 25 to reach out to the sick, the needy and those imprisoned unjustly. This is NOT a liberal issue. It is a Christian issue. Will you pray for wisdom and strength to stop this prejudice?

Comment received from Alex ... "Wouldn't it be nice to just forget the past and move on with a future of hope. However, we live in a world too separated by people with big differences of opinions...." Read more and share. Click: Christians Blog christian youth topic-trust
