One of my favorite things to do with a small group or youth group is to lead them through the Divine Mercy Novena which starts on Good Friday each year. I had to recreate instructions for it so that it would be easiest for the youth to lead and pray. I thought others of you […]
As you may have found out through our email newsletter, we have a new section on our website encourage you to ask questions and help other Catholic Youth Ministers out by answering their questions as well. Well getting these new efforts up and running at the start is always difficult as some people are a […]
I often have friends in ministry who ask me for directions on games I play and I typically just point them to the site. When a friend asked me about Spoons and I realized I had never mentioned it on this site, I immediately realized how incomplete the game library on here is. So, […]

A great youth ministry video from Chris Stefanick on God’s love and mercy.
Materials Needed Music (music must be loud, game gets loud and people need to hear it stop) Directions This is probably one of the greatest games for retreat type atmosphere when you need to lighten things up a little bit.

This is a great clip from Facing The Giants. There are many things you could discuss with this clip, but the one that stuck out to me was the need to have someone in your life pushing you, especially in your faith. You need someone to hold you accountable in becoming the person that are […]
A great new Catholic Youth Ministry Video on Tolerance by Chris Stefanick. In this video, Chris talks about absolute truth and tolerance. A great video to use for a lesson or to share with the youth in your ministry.
This is a hilarious youth ministry game that someone showed me this last summer at camp. You need NO supplies and can do it with two people or 100 people. I found a pretty humorous video on YouTube of two guys who explain the game well. This is a different variation from what I saw, […]
This group does an excellent job re-writing the words and performing to the song What Makes Beautiful by One Direction. They put a twist on the words by focusing on virtue. A great youth ministry video to use for fun or to focus on a night speaking about virtue and beauty.
Chris Stefanick does an excellent job in this video explaining tolerance, absolute truth, etc. This would be a great video to share with your youth or use to begin a discussion on some hot topics.
Richard Reising from BeyondRelevance.com put out this great video that shows a humorous but actually very sad reality of how silly some of our marketing techniques in the Church really are. We definitely recommend you check out his site. This is a great video to use for youth ministry training as you work to train […]
A great new youth ministry video from OutsideDaBox on the Seven Sacraments. You can purchase this from them here.
This is an excellent youth ministry video on God’s love. The video moves from people disgusted by their sin to recognizing God’s great love.
An incredible new video from Dove of an artist that draws people as they see themselves and also as other people see them. The artist does not ever look at the people but asks them questions behind a curtain while he draws. Incredibly moving.
