Pokemon Go Gospel

Pokemon Go Gospel

Modern Culture, Slider
I am sure that by now you have heard of Pokemon Go. You may even be playing the game yourself if only to try to see what all of the fuss is about. If you are totally clueless Pokemon Go is a game where you walk around in the real world to “catch” Pokemon. Unlike the games of our younger days there isn’t a larger story. There isn’t some pre-made world to wander through. There is only your own life and experience as you walk around hoping that something pops up in front of you to catch. If you want more information I really like the Geek Dad beginner guide at https://geekdad.com/2016/07/pokemon-go-beginners-guide/ it has some basic intro ideas for playing the game. Because of the architecture that the game was built on (an…

Over the years I have come up with many different youth ideas.

This year I decided to finally try something that had been in my head a long time and make a giant soap foam pit. For the youth I made a game out of the pit throwing balls down under the soap that they had to…

My Advice for Life (A Drawing While Teaching Lesson)

My Advice for Life (A Drawing While Teaching Lesson)

Slider, Youth Lessons, Youth Ministry Ideas
This summer I have been working on a series of lessons based around drawings. To kick that off I did this lesson you see here. There is something almost mantra like about the opening to me. I wrote it, so it is weird to say, but it is a very cool way of pouring advice into teenagers without pouring advice into them. The actual lesson part is a little more straight forward. I would project the next piece of the drawing and then would talk about it and continue until I had a whole picture of what it means to be a child of God on the screen. You can see the drawing below (I like to leave it hand drawn looking so that the teenagers aren't intimdated to try…
