A name is something huge!! Whether it’s a child or an event, when you put a label/name on it, it begins to live up (or down) to its name. That’s the power of naming.

In my opinion, everything that is born of God deserves a good name. In giving a name to your youth ministry or event, it is important to think about what it says about who your are and how it will appeal to both churched and unchurched teenagers. Here are ten names* that have significant spiritual meaning, yet are not religious sounding, that I have come across over the years.

1) Revolution - God has called his church to revolt from sin and rally people to His cause.

2) Flood - Isaiah 44:3 says, God will pour water on him that is thirsty and floods on dry ground.

3) Ten-Ten (10/10) - John 10:10, hence “ten-ten” promises abundant life to those who serve Jesus.

4) Flo - An acronym for “Forever Live On” based on the John 11:26 promise of everlasting life.

5) Young World - Isn’t this what every youth group ought to be?

6) Everfree - whom the son sets free is free indeed.

7) Fish - Jesus said, “Follow me and I’ll make you fishers of men.”

8) Last Rain - Joel prophesied about the day of the latter rain, which we now are in.

9) Slam - “Students Living A Mission.”

10) Awake - The scripture tells us to awake from our slumber.

For example, our high school ministry name is “Force”. Our middle school ministry name is “Impact.” Our college ministry name is “explosion.” They all center under Matthew 11:12: “the kingdom of heavens suffers violence and the violent take it by force.” These are aggressive, action words to describe how we are going from our local church to reach the unreached.
