Great Ideas and Tips

Ideas and tips to enhance your youth ministry



Idea #1

Enjoy what you do.


Idea #2

Picture, picture, picture!

Always take pictures of your youth group activities. Hang them up on the church or youth group bulletin board. Have kids create crazy captions for them.


Idea #3

Subscribe to the Youth Ministry Accent. You may not be able to use all the ideas, suggestions and programs, but next time you need one, you'll have plenty to choose from.


Idea #4

Take Surveys. Find out what’s going on among your young people.


Idea #5

Network with other leaders.

Join an AY Youth Federation in your area. If there’s none, organize one. Meet periodically, at least once a quarter, with other youth workers in your area to share ideas and problems. They can be a great resource for you.


Idea #6

Deal with it now!

Never ignore a disturbance during a meeting. When a distraction occurs, acknowledge it. It's the best way to regain the attention of the group.


Idea #7

Be realistic.

Try not to make promises you can't keep.


Idea #8

Be Web savy.

Create a website for your group so that people can always know what’s going on and get details of upcoming events and activities. Parents especially will love this.


Idea #9

Size does matter.

Don't meet in a room that is too big for your youth group. If your group is small, meet in a small room. This gives kids the feeling of being "packed" in. Always make sure your meeting place is casual and comfortable.


Idea #10

Ignoring won’t make it go away.

Don’t ignore a problem.

Always deal with problems as they come up. Don't expect them to go away on their own. They won't.


Idea #11

Your “Text Me” Committee.

Set up a cell-phone text-messaging committee to help spread the word regarding upcoming events. The size of your committee will depend on the size of your group. Assign 1 person to text 10-15 persons. Text messaging is very personal and very effective in spreading information about upcoming events.


Idea #12

Start a Parent Volunteer Network.

Get to know the parents of your young people. Ask them to volunteer. They will become your best fans.


Idea #13

Choosing the AY Sponsor.

Allow the young people in your group to select the adult AY sponsor.


Idea #14

Stay current!

Develop programs that reflect the needs, interests and energy level of your group.


Idea #15

Check it out first.

Preview everything. Never use a video you haven't seen or schedule a speaker you haven't heard.


Idea #16

Read a book.

Take time to read several new books each year. Try to read the books recommended in the Youth Ministry Accent’s “readIT” section.


Idea #17

Involve the youth.

Get the youth involved in the church and the community. The 2009 Discussion Question Kit offers some great suggestions.


Idea #18

Be flexible.

Do not cancel an event because enough youth did not show up. Be flexible, adjust your plans, but do not send everyone home. Let those who show up know they're just as important.


Idea #19

Be accessible.

Communicate availability. Do not give the impression that you're too busy for the members of your group.


Idea #20

Be Yourself.

Be an adult. You are not "one of the kids." You are an adult who love young people.

               calling all youth

For thou art my hope, O Lord: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5.

Jesus calls to every wanderer, " My son, give met thine heart." Proverbs 23:26.... The youth cannot be happy without the love of Jesus. He is waiting with pitying tenderness to hear the confessions of the wayward, and to accept their penitence. He watches for some return of gratitude from us, as the mother watches for the smile of recognition from her beloved child. The great God teaches us to call Him Father. He would have us understand how earnestly and tenderly His heart yearns over us in all trials and temptations....
The young should be constantly growing in grace, and in a knowledge of the youth. The Creator of all things, with whom are all the treasures of wisdom,has promised to be the guide of their youth. He who has conquered in their behalf all the powers of evil asks for their homage. There can be no higher knowledge than the knowledge of Him whom to know aright is life and peace; no purer, deeper affection than the love of our Saviour....
There are temptation on every hand to ensnare the feet of the unwary. Ungodly, corrupt youth exert a strong influence to lead others into forbidden paths. These are among the most successful agents of Satan.... The lovers of the world will often approach under a garb of friendship, and attempt to introduce its customs and practices. Let every true soldier stand to resist these allurements....
Satan attacks us at our weak points; but we need not be overcome. The assault may be severe and protracted, but God has promised help for us, and His strength we may conquer.... The precepts and promises of God's word will arm you with divine power to resist the enemy.... Satan will be baffled and defeated when he finds the heart preoccupied with the truth of God. We need also to be often found at the throne of grace. Earnest, persevering prayer, uniting our human weakness to Omnipotence, will give us the VICTORY.
