It’s great to be in a tightly-knit group, but getting to that point often proves challenging. Sometimes a simple game does the magic, but other times nothing seems to work. How does a group come together? Are there certain ingredients we can count on, or is it just hit-and-miss, better luck next time?

Although each group is unique, you can count on some key principles and follow a basic flow to foster closeness and community in your group—whether that’s with 5 people, 50, or 500.

Youth ministry veteran Steve Case has put together this “bag of tricks” which he collected over decades of experience. You may have seen, led, or possibly invented some of these activities, but now you have them arranged in a flow and with descriptions that will enable you to craft your own group-building experiences.

Paperback. Copyright 2016. 160 pages.
