This is one of CBSM’s most favorite videos of all time. I’ve met this dude before, and he’s a great guy. A youth pastor in California somewhere I believe. But about once a year, we’ll start out our youth service with this video. Then we’ll ask the whole student ministry to stand up and copy the Old Testament Dance (from 1:45 to 2:15 on the video). I’ll watch for the best dancers, and pick the top 10 to come up on stage and have an Old Testament Dance Off with the video playing with them from 1:45 to 2:15. The only rule we have is that the students don’t turn around with their rump shaking the crowd as “the booty drops like the walls of Jericho.” Your student ministry will love this! Give a free snack or drink to the winner.
At CBSM, we always love to start off our Wednesday night worship services with a funny video and a crazy game. Here is an example of a crazy game that you could use anytime. We tell our students that each side of the room is going to take on each other on the craziest roller coaster ride ever. We play the video and let them see exactly how the roller coaster is going to roll. Then we select a student from each side to stand up in front of their side of students, put their hands up, lean to the left, lean to the right, lean back, lean forward, scream, shake, but no vomitting allowed (that’s the only rule). Then, the best team who simulates the craziest roller coaster ride ever…wins.
