Does your youth group play games? Do you want to play something a little more fun than PowerPoint trivia games? When it comes to games for churches, you might notice that there are tons to choose from, but the quality is hit or miss. Unfortunately, you’re more likely to have misses than hits. Your youth ministry deserves really fun games that can be played more than once!
All of our games are apps that you install on your Mac & PC. This opens the doors to infinite possibilities! It allows our games to do more than simple presentation slides.
Unlike other games out there, ours can be played again and again! Since they’re apps, the games are affected by the user. That means the results are different every time! No more trashing used games!
Our games are completely interactive. That means you control what happens in the game straight from the keyboard! No more basic trivia games for your ministry!
Parker Stech is the brains behind Games For Youth Ministry. Parker is a 10+ year youth ministry veteran and currently leads a discipleship group of teenage guys.
When he was younger, the thought of church was hard for him to swallow. But when he first went to church, it was fun! There were games and things that made him laugh which allowed him to experience the truth of the Gospel. Using that experience and passion for using his gifts to serve Jesus, he creates all of the fun games and utilities for Games For Youth Ministry. He’s an incredibly skilled coder and graphic designer.
Parker and his wife live in the Birmingham, AL area with their five kids.
Games For Youth Ministry is powered by YM360, a Biblically-based ministry organization serving churches all over the world. We’re all about partnering with youth ministries to create resources and events that matter for students. We believe in strategic and intentional experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, where students are encouraged to take the next steps in their faith journey, and where they are challenged to be a person of global impact.

Not a problem! Below, you'll find a list of the most commonly asked questions. If your question isn't there, use the live chat box in the bottom right corner of your screen and someone from YM360 will help you out.
It's really easy! Just download any game and install it on your Mac or PC. When you open the game for the first time, it's going to ask you to log in with your YM360 account. If you don't have an account (or aren't sure), you can create a new account (it will let you know if you already have an account with the email address that you entered). Once you login/create an account, your 14 day trial automatically starts. This trial applies to every game in our library. So you'll have 14 days to explore and try out whatever you want!
Nope! We want you to try everything out before you commit to anything. If you love it, you can become a member at any time!
Yes! If you open a game without an internet connection, it will go into Offline Mode. Games will play in Offline Mode for up to 5 days after it was online last. After the 5th day, you'll have to have an internet connection so the game can relink to your account.
G4YM games are designed specifically for Macs & PCs. Mobile games are great, but have too many limitations. Computers have way more power than mobile devices and we love using that power!
They sure do! If you have a second display plugged in, it will be detected automatically. When you launch a game, it will always go into fullscreen on the secondary display.
Like your presentation software, G4YM games are standalone apps. That means they run alongside your presentation software as opposed to inside. Just launch a game and will hand the screen off to your presentation software when you tell it to.
Yep! Just open and setup whichever games that you want to use. When you're ready to show them, just click the 'Launch' button. You can have multiple games launched at the same time. Using the 'Show' button on a game will bring it to the front. Using the 'Hide' button will move it to the back and will bring the screen behind it to the front.
Absolutely! We know how ministry is. If you need to run a game of a different computer, that's perfectly fine.
