Rooted 2016: Mike McGarry on Theology of Fun and Games

Don’t build your ministry on fun and games, but don’t be afraid to utilize them in order to build a gospel-centered community. In the Christian life, there is a time for study, and a time for laughter – and that should be reflected in the rhythm of our ministries to students. Mike McGarry discusses the unintentional ways that fun can become the functional-purpose of our youth group, while recognizing that it is also not the enemy. Instead, we can leverage fun and games to break down walls, tear down cliques, and create a welcoming community where we have cultivated trust by the time our students hear the gospel proclaimed.
