Scripts written for youth groups have traditionally been cheesy or just simply not funny. Thankfully, the Skit Guys have refined the art of the youth group sketch. In this second volume of Skits That Teach, youth groups will find dozens of scripts to use as illustrations, discussion starters, or icebreakers.

Tommy Woodard and Eddie James have tested these scripts with teenagers across the country, and they know what it takes to write a scene that is simple for teens to perform, while at the same time making a point or getting a laugh. Easy for youth pastors to hand off to a group of teenagers, these scripts address a variety of topics and offer options for monologues, duets or bigger casts to perform funny, serious or musical scenes. No matter how they use the skits, youth workers can teach students important lessons with the easy-to-perform scenes in Skits That Teach, Volume 2.

Helping Students Wrestle With Mystery

How do we respond when our teens ask, “Why does the Christian faith seem so strange and tough to figure out?” I agree that Christianity isn’t always easy to understand. There are many topics that are tough to grasp. The Bible does not shy away from mystery.   John, one of Jesus’ 12 followers, wrote…

How Do I See Myself After High School?: A Sticky Faith Free Download Lesson

Many of the statistics you read about teenagers and faith can be alarming. Recent studies show that 40-50 percent of kids who are connected to a youth group throughout their senior year will fail to stick with their faith in college. As youth workers are pouring their time and energy into the students in their ministries, they are often left wondering if they've done enough to equip their students to carry their faith into adulthood.

Today’s Lazy Youth Pastor

“Today’s youth pastors are the laziest bunch of people I’ve ever met.”

Disagree with it if you want. I didn’t say it, and it wasn’t an all-inclusive statement. I know plenty of hardworking and even over-worked youth workers. This comment was said by my friend in a moment of frustration.

But…was there some truth to it?

When Did Programming Become the P-Word?

Have you noticed that “programming” has become a bad word in many youth ministry circles?

Really?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the push-back against those of us who have become so program-focused that we lose sight of why those programs were created to begin with. Sadly, I’ve seen way too many youth ministries running a Wednesday night program for all the kids that are dropped off by mom and dad. Relational ministry trumps this kind of programming any day of the week, an argument I support throughout my book Connect.
