More About This Book

Overview

Fun Friends Faith

Several youth are on the way to your church anticipating an evening with friends. They seek direction from their youth leaders, which will engage them in activities that bring them together. Whether five, fifteen or fifty are in the group, "Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meeting" has ideas for you.

From the simulated court dramas of "The Jury Speaks" to the interactive "Trust Exercises" youth will find fun, friends and faith. The "Olympics" describes seven weeks of events which equally challenge athletic and intellectual skills. "Flashlight Sing" will get the most introverted youth singing while "Walking on Water" brings them into the presence of Jesus, himself.

The structure and indexes of the book make it easy to find just the right activity for your youth group meeting. The book gives youth leaders the tools to creatively plan events, which meet each group's unique needs while having fun, making new friends and enhancing the faith of all participants.

    Great Book !

    I have known Elder Ferguson for over 30 years , he has a special way with young people and an organizational skill that most of us can only wish for. This book is a must read for anybody that works with young people in either a religious or secular group !

    Wow, what a resource!!!!!!!

    I've been a Sunday School Teacher since 1998 and have assisted during many youth group activities. It is always a challenge to discover ideas that are not only simply for fun but which also teach the gospel message and engage the imaginations of our young people. 'Not the Same Old, Done-it-Before Youth Meetings' does this. It has lots of fun activities but, much more importantly, it addresses the need to challenge the minds and hearts of our young people. I was impressed by our young people's response to several of the scenario's in the 'Jury Speaks' chapter. The Cosmology and Genesis One lesson opened the minds of not only our young people but of myself to the remarkable similarity between the first chapters of Genesis and the most modern of scientific theories. With 350 pages of ideas, youth leaders may wonder where to start but the multiple indexes by topic and by bible verse - really help us focus on finding the right activity for the meeting at hand. So far, everything has worked. I recommend this book for any Christian educators but particularly for youth group leaders. The book begins - youth want to make friends, expand their horizons and find ways to 'make a difference'. This book will help any youth leader, as it has helped us, attain these goals.
