I haven’t spent much time in the “youth ministry” aisle of my local Christian bookstore lately. I guess there are a number of reasons. For a while there I wanted to refrain from all idea books because I was all excited about writing my own stuff and didn’t want to steal ideas from other people. Of course there were budget concerns and time concerns and just a general idea to do things from my own head for a while.
But recently I picked up this book from Todd Outcalt and I have been thrilled with what I have found. The ideas are different, sometimes daring, and always cheep. There is a nice mix of irreverent and poignant ideas. If you are looking for a few ideas to add to your weekly meeting or some fun low cost games to add to your next big event then be sure to check this book out.
