Create fun events with meaningful messages for your youth group. Reach out to students, help them feel part of the group, laugh a little and connect them to God's truth with Uncommon Youth Parties. Youth leaders will find creative ideas for Theme Parties, Holiday Parties, and Special Events to develop young people socially, emotionally and spiritually.

Uncommon Youth Parties, part of a series of resources and group studies developed by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, will help youth leaders find a number of timesaving ideas for planning outreach, fundraising, fellowship, birthday events and holiday celebrations all year round. This easy-to-use resource, developed and field-tested by veteran youth workers, includes message and activity ideas, promotional tips and comprehensive outlines to not only build fellowship within the group but also serve as an outreach tool to bring others into it.
