What to Do with Bored Church Kids?

"I'm bored."

I couldn't believe my ears. I was three months into a youth pastorate. I had taken the high school students from our youth ministry to a theme park—one with "the world's fastest roller coaster"—and the students complained of being bored.

That was the last time I took any students to a theme park.

Instead, I started doing something else... and when I did this "something else" with students... I quit hearing the words, "I'm bored."

No joke.

I don't know what all the answers are to dealing with bored high school students in the church, but I can guarantee that it's not more fun entertainment. Besides, you didn't get in to youth ministry to babysit whiny teenagers. You got into youth ministry because you wanted to see students become REAL disciples of Jesus Christ... right?

If you're interested in discovering the "something else" that will take the "I'm bored" right out of the students in your high school youth ministry, then you should read this very carefully.

If, after reading that, you have questions and/or would like more information, contact me. I'd love to interact with you.

If you have bored junior high/middle school students and you're not sure what to do with them, then check out THIS and then contact us for more info. We'd love to interact with you too.

And just for the record, I couldn't agree more with Bono when he said, "I want to have fun, and I want to change the world."

Youth ministry done like Jesus can do both.
