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)

Four Square (game)

No. of participants:     Minimum of 8 people
Age:                          6 years upwards
Materials needed:        Chalk or masking tape; some kind of ball that can bounce
                                (use a soft ball for younger children)
Space needed:            Minimum space of about 4m by 4m on a smooth surface on which masking
                                tape can be stuck to demarcate the squares or on which chalk can be used to
                                draw the squares; Indoor/outdoor
Time taken:               10 -20 minutes


•    Using either chalk or masking tape, demarcate one large square divided equally into four squares, making a window-like design. The squares are called numbers one to four respectively moving clockwise.

•    Players line up outside of square number 1, with one participant in each of the four squares.

•    Player in square 1 begins with the ball and hits it with his/her hand into one of the other squares. Each player has to successfully hit the ball into one of the other squares when it lands in their square. When the ball goes out the person who hit it out joins the back of the queue again and the other players move up to the next square around.

•     The aim of the game is to move up to square 4 and stay in as long as possible without making any mistakes.

•      A more difficult version of the game is to hit the ball with your foot (instead of your hand).
