Today and tomorrow 3 of Francis Chan’s bestselling books free in ebook form, they are great books and I highly recommend them:
I’ve blogged before about a great prize wheel for your computer (Spin That Wheel), but I just found one that just as good (and cheaper) to use on the iPad. It’s called iPrizeWheel and it’s great fun. It’s a customizable prize wheel that you can setup and run right from your iPad. And using the mirroring function in iOS you can send it right to your TV for a larger screen experience. The basic version gives you the choice of 16 or 24 spots on the wheel that you can put type in your own prizes. It only costs $4.99 and you can upgrade in app to a premium version that gives you even more options. Learn more and see screen shots on iTunes.
Here’s video that shows how it works:
Here’s the contest part, the folks over at iPrizeWheel have given me 3 copies to give away to the YouthMinistryGeeks out there. If you’d like to win a copy, in the comments tell us an idea to use the app in your ministry. On Wed April 11th, 2012 we’ll pick 3 to win copies of the basic version of iPrizeWheel plus we’ll post all the ideas for using it in your ministry.

I recently came across the site Only144, it is like Groupon for churches. Throughout the year they launch some great deals that only last 144 hours and once they’re over, they’re over. On March 16th they are launching an amazing youth ministry bundle worth over $2000. The whole thing will only cost $97 and includes items from Youthministry360, The Skit Guys, Church Ninja and much more. Head over to only144.com and look through the whole list of goodies and check out their short video on the deal.
Only144 is allowing us to give one bundle away. Leave a comment below telling what item in the bundle you like most and on Thursday, March 15, we will randomly choose one of those comments to give a FREE bundle to.
I don’t know how I missed this, but i just saw my friends from DigitalStache have a blog called GameShow where they are posting some great games. With title like Smart or Stupid and Hit the Chip how could you go wrong. They are providing instructions and graphics for some fun games. Doesn’t look like it’s updated that often, but maybe some traffic will inspire them.
If you need some new games, it might be a good one to check out.
