Grahame Knox, a veteran youth worker in the U.K., graciously donates a free ebook he wrote called, 40 Icebreakers for Small Groups. It’s full of great ideas to get the blood pumping, adrenaline flowing and teens interacting with each other. Here’s his description:
40 Icebreakers for Small Groups is an ebook compiled from several previous articles posted on my blog Insight. I thought it might be helpful to put them together in an eBook to download. In addition, I’ve added several extra icebreakers which don’t appear in the articles!
Divided into two sections, “Getting To Know You” and “Group Builders,” these icebreakers encourage sharing, openness, listening, co-operation and discussion, providing a creative foundation for a small group study or teaching time.
CONTRIBUTE TO FREEBIE FRIDAY: If you’ve benefited from others who have freely shared their youth ministry resources online, consider giving back to the community by sharing your own materials here. Send me your donations for review and if I publish them in a Freebie Friday, you’ll receive full credit, a link, lots of gratitude and a warm feeling inside that comes from sharing with others.
Featured Skypecast Guest Today
Adam McLane of Youth Ministry Exchange is gracious to join us for today’s Life In Student Ministry Skypecast. Four youth pastors who are connected with his ministry lost their jobs this month, so he’s going to talk a bit about transitions in youth ministry. He’ll also discuss social networking, blogging, and general technology stuff in youth ministry. Come to hear his thoughts and bounce your questions and ideas off him. It starts at 1:00 PM central time this afternoon. More info here.
