Games in a Pinch

You’re in trouble now. You’ve been asked to sub for Wednesday night youth group (right now it’s Wednesday afternoon) and you got nothing. Here are some youth group games, ministry mixers, team-building youth ministry games and youth activities to get you out of a jam.

Our Mission! at Mud Pie Industries is to create in-depth learning games that create rich, immersive experiences for Bible teaching. These games are still in development but we don’t want you to go away empty-handed. So we are daily adding to this list of free Bible games and free Bible teaching resources. And feel free to ask questions, post comments…we’re here to talk!

Data Processing: Create a giant computer and sort people by size, eye color, length of hair or any other criteria that you set.
