Welcome to the home of the largest youth ministry freebie archive on the internet. I am Ryan Nielsen, founder of Pastor2youth.com. I started working in youth ministry in 1991 and have been blessed to work in a variety of churches, from small to large, as well as to work in 4 different countries. I'm currently teaching Computer skills classes and Bible classes to both Jr. High and High School students at Plumas Christian School in Quincy, CA. I started this site because I wanted to provide youth workers with an online network to exchange ideas, stories, resources and more ... and to make all of this available completely FREE!
The site includes hundreds of games - categorized by energy level and location, thousands of downloadable resources - including PowerPoint lessons, PowerPoint games, Bible studies, backgrounds, and more. Additionally, Pastor2Youth.com has a member's discussion forum to exchange more ideas.
It is exciting to be a partner with one of the leaders in youth ministry resources, providing the best-of-the-best in Bible studies, leadership resources, training, media, videos and so much more - Simply Youth Ministry. Simply Youth Ministry offers some of the most amazing resources available for those who work with students and I would encourage you to check out the incredible resources they provide as well. So, welcome, and enjoy free access to all the freebies your heart desires.
In His Grips,
Ryan C. Nielsen
Dear youth ministry friends,
Here at Simply Youth Ministry, we know how important it is to find resources that are helpful. We are constantly on the lookout for incredible ideas to continue to help and resource those in youth ministry. Because of that, it brings us great joy to announce that Simply Youth Ministry has partnered with Pastor2Youth to enlarge the offering of free resources of training, teaching and great games.
Because of the popularity of Pastor2Youth.com, we know that youth workers like free stuff (and who doesn't?). Our friend, Ryan Nielsen, started this website as a "ministry to ministers" and has cataloged the largest number of free lessons, games, devotionals and leadership training resources that we could find on the internet. Instead of recreating the wheel of free resources we decided to combine our efforts and we couldn't be more excited to add our stuff to the selections.
Simply Youth Ministry has always been about two things: simplifying ministry and saving you time. Everyone at SYM thinks this partnership is the perfect expression of our mission.
I hope you find more resources than you could possibly use!
On your team!
The gang at SYM
