10-Second Tip: Smash Face Youth Ministry Game

At the NATIONAL YOUTH WORKERS CONVENTION, we stopped youth workers from all across the U.S. and asked them to share a 10-second youth ministry tip.


“Do not play smash face in front of parents.”


To be honest, I don’t know what smash face is. At first I thought it was that hilarious pie face game, but I have a feeling it’s way more painful than that. This tip is a great reminder of one very clear sign that you should NOT play a game:

If you can’t play it in front of parents, you should NOT play the game.

It doesn’t matter how fun the game is, if you have to keep any part of it secret, it’s not worth the risk.

Join us this year for the National Youth Workers Convention in Cincinnati, OH for way more tips and ministry ideas from the 50+ seminars and training opportunities. Register early for NYWC to save BIG: NYWC.COM.
