What People are Saying About This

Laurie Polich
Laurie Polich, Youth Speaker and Author
Les Christie knows games. He's been creating them, teaching them and playing them for 40 years. I can't think of anyone more qualified to write this book. You can rest assured this resource was created by the best.
Doug Fields
Doug Fields, Pastor to Students, Saddleback Church President, Simply Youth Ministry
This is a great book of games?that actually work. Some great classics and many that I've never seen that my students really enjoyed. I appreciate that Les has provided some gaming tips so my volunteers can lead with confidence. The majority of the games in the book require little or no preparation, few props, and almost no cash?which is great for any youth worker. You can play them immediately. Les has been leading seminars on games around the world for several years and he's taken the best and put them in our hands. Thanks for this great game book!
Efrem Smith
Efrem Smith, Senior Pastor, Sanctuary Covenant Church, Author, Raising Up Young Heroes
Les Christie reminds us that the 'fun factor' is still a great way to break the ice, build community, and tear down walls of division within youth ministry. Les Christie, over the years, has shown a great gift for compiling and creating various ways to use games as a springboard to teaching gospel truths. This is a must-have in a youth minister's library.
