I just got done watching the latest mission from Improv Everywhere. This one was called, “best game ever.” They basically took a little league game and turned it into a major league event. At first, I thought – man that is cool. But, at the end, I started thinking about what it would take to pull off something like that in my youth ministry. What could we do to turn an “ordinary” event into something extraordinary? What would it take?
Watch the video and then we’ll continue this discussion…
I think everyone in youth ministry would agree that doing something like this would be awesome. Talk about memory makers. But how do you pull it off and which students do you include? How could you do something like this and include all your students?
I don’t think many of our ministries could afford to do a jumbotron or even the mascots. Maybe it could be something you do for the seniors each year, or the freshmen. I’m pretty short of ideas – I was just really impressed and wanted to start some conversation/thinking.
(read about what it took to pull of, as well as a nice recap of what happened, here on their site.)
Do you have any ideas of what a youth ministry could do to add this “wow” factor to an event?
