Are you struggling to have fun with your youth ministry? It can be a challenge today in a digital world. How do you interact with students who can’t be there each week. How can you reach students digitally?
I think a lot of youth groups are missing one element: Fun. We are missing the fun factor when it comes to online ministry. It’s easy to be so focused on online content, preaching series, ect. But students in your ministry need relationships, connection, fun.
One way to upgrade the fun in your youth ministry in this season: Among us.
Here is a fun game to play with 4-10 players online. All you need is a phone. This app works with both iOS and Android.
Here is an online game that is a digital game of the old school youth ministry game called Mafia.
What is among us?
Play online or over local wifi with 4-10 players as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return back to civilization. But beware…as there may be an alien impostor aboard!
One crewmate has been replaced by a parasitic shapeshifter. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostor will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.
While everyone is fixing up the ship, no one can talk to maintain anonymity. Once a body is reported, the surviving crew will openly debate who they think The Impostor is. The Impostor’s goal is to pretend that they are a member of the crew. If The Impostor is not voted off, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If The Impostor is voted off, the crew wins!
The hack: Get someone to create a group chat on FaceTime, and you can then all chat about who you think the imposter is.
A few ways to play this game online, you can set up each day or week a time when you will create a game and first students who come get into the game. You could also do this according to small group.
Among us is a fun online game that is hilarious, and fun to play with your youth ministry.
