Youth Ministry on the Cheap…

save-money1We are going to be starting a new series of posts at called “Youth Ministry on the Cheap”. I know that there are a lot of rural youth ministries that have small budgets, some have shrinking budgets, and others have no budget at all. So here at, we want to provide a whole category of low and no cost ideas as well as some great resources for fundraising and stretching the few dollars you do have farther for the work of God’s Kingdom.

A couple of great starting resources are:
The $5 Youth Ministry by Todd Outcalt
Youth Ministry on A Shoestring Budget by Lars Rood.

We want to hear the ideas that worked for you. (And even great “Fail Stories” we can learn from!!)

Submit your money-saving and money-stretching Ideas/Activities/Resources at
