WF YM: Using the Five Senses

  • Print

Creating memories and experiences for your teens is one of our favorite practices for youth ministry. Experiencing just so happens to use our senses so we believe the more the senses used in youth ministry the better. Purposely incorporate as many of the five senses you can into your youth ministry experiences.

The sense creative teachers most often use is sight.  We lean on our Powerpoints and video clips because they are simply effective.  However, using the other senses have the possibility to be even more effective.

Do you know which sense is the most effective for learning retention?  Smell.  Not an easy one to incorporate into teachings but the fruit can be big.  Move outside of normal and purposely incorporate as many of the senses you can.
