This great game will get your students interacting with each other while in-teracting with their phones, AND having a ton of fun in the process.

Using the Sidekick App "Pixelate" template, each round has two emojis blurred out on a slide. Sometimes they are side by side (a little easier) some-times they slightly overlap (tougher), and sometimes there is one on top of or inside the other (pretty stinking hard).

Choose from various gameplay options:

FOR SMALLER CROWDS: Have students text their guess into a phone num-ber. First to get it wins!

FOR UPFRONT GAME: Pull up 3-4 contestants per round. Have them type the emotions on their phone and show you.

FOR TEAM PLAY: Divide up into small groups. Place point values on the level of blurriness (most blurry worth 4 points; least blurry worth 1 point). Teams can lock in on their guess at one blurry level. Get it right and get the points. Most points at the end wins.

Or make up your own way to play!

I've been fortunate to serve 20+ years in Student Ministry at the same church, Nappanee Missionary Church in Nappanee Indiana. Over that time I have been able to craft a plethora of experiences and resources that help students and parents in their spiritual journey, and I love that DYM has provided me the opportunity to share them with you. My wife Janelle and I have four amazing children ages 10 and under. I love the Cubs, the Colts, comic books, podcasts, and going to Disney World.

Oh, I have a podcast too! It's all about my story of 20+ years of Student Ministry at the same church, lessons learned and people met along the way. You can check out My Third Decade at

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
