YM Quotes:

Youth ministry is always a challenge. Youth ministry is consistently changing. Youth ministry is regularly surprising. Youth ministry is fresh all the time. (Mark Oestreicher)

Although students need guidance from good leaders, we often take on too much of the responsibility for their knowledge about God. We want them to blindly adopt our opinions rather than work out their own understanding. Instead we must help young people learn how to think for themselves with God’s perspective as their foundation and the Word of God as their rule. (Sean Dunn)

Circle Knees (game)

This is a really simple game which is easy to initiate spontaneously.

No. of participants:     3-20
Age:                          From 3 years upwards
Materials needed:       One soccer ball
Space needed:            Small area needed
Time taken:               Totally variable


Description:       

1.    Participants stand in a circle.

2.    Ball is thrown randomly from person to person across the space in the middle.

3.    If anyone drops the ball or throws an ‘uncatchable’ ball, they go onto one knee until they are thrown to and catch and throw effectively. Then they are able to stand again.

4.    Additional mistakes result in moving onto two knees, sitting down and then lying down and moving back up those levels can only take place through catching and throwing well again.
