Trust Walk Bible Game for Adults Youths Kids

Preparation

Find a suitable location, ideally with some obstacles for the players to avoid, go over or under.

Alternatively, you can create an obstacle course with tables and chairs.

Ensure that these obstacles are safe and age-appropriate for your participants.

How to Play

Pair everyone up. If there is an odd number of players, one person can partner the game leader.

One person in each pair will be blind-folded, and the other person will lead him/her through the obstacle course. Depending on the ages of your participants and how easy/safe your obstacle course is, you may allow each pair to hold hands, or rely purely on verbal communications.

If you are playing this game with children and youths, ensure that there are leaders and helpers to watch over the participants.

After successful completion of the obstacle course, switch roles and repeat.
