In this YS Idea Lab, Neely McQueen interviews Josh Griffin about his 10 best youth ministry ideas from DYM. Even though they try really hard to get to all 10, they only hit 5… BUT those 5 are awesome ideas!


If you don't have time to watch all of the video, here are the highlights: 

1) “Fact or Fiction” apologetics series with guest speakers in their entry level program that addresses tough questions about Christianity.
2) “You Own The Weekend” is a completely student led weekend of youth ministry services. 
3) “Insta-Life” series that utilizes instagram and pulls out some key talking points that relate to our spirituality. 
4) Have students buy pizza for the janitors in their high schools to show how important it is to serve others. 
5) “Post-It Note project” where students in your ministry write encouraging post-it notes for each student in their high school and stick them to their lockers.
