General resources

The E-Church Network provides ministries with fully integrated online cyberchurch ministry tools designed specifically to support the three major life-cycle phases of spiritual formation for emergent generations.

Group Publishing offers a wide variety of resources for children’s ministry, youth ministry, adult/small group ministry and clergy.

A free resource for youth workers containing numerous youth ministry papers, over 750 youth ministry games, more than 450 ministry links (geared toward youth ministry), an 84-page leadership manual, a one-year youth devotional, a youth ministry resource exchange with over 1,200 resources (lessons, PPT games, etc.) from other youth workers. New material is added daily. distributes sermon media from production companies and independent producers in an effort to help the church to communicate Christ’s eternal truths in a creative and relevant way.

Scripture Union International is active in nearly 130 countries around the world and is still working to introduce children and young people to Jesus. Although the gospel never changes, each culture expresses it in a particular way, and so the work is carried out through local people in ways that are appropriate to the country, culture and situation in which a movement is based.

Reaching the youth of today is harder than ever. Helping them grow deeper in Christ can be even more difficult. The challenge is having the time to administrate the youth ministry and still have time to spend with the youth. That is when lives can be really changed. And that is why The Zone was created to simplify and shorten preparation.

A home-grown site offering ideas, resources, games and articles on youth ministry. Well worth a visit.

One of the largest youth ministry resource sites in the world.
