Today, we are talking all about the best tips and tricks for how you can set up portable church successfully.  Even if you aren't having to rent out weekly space to do your youth ministry in a mobile church, some of these tips will be helpful in how you can step up your tech and decor for your current youth room.  For over a decade, our church was renting out a local high school to host our 2 Sunday morning services and our midweek programs were hosted at a completely different building.  Every Sunday, we would have to set everything up and tear everything down and every Tuesday/Wednesday was the same thing.  It was exhausting.  Eventually, we moved into a permanent building, but we will never forget our time of having to do portable church: the lessons learned, the successes, the failures and the appreciation for what we now have.  SHOPPING LIST:TECH:6' Folding Table (You can also check Home Depot, or Walmart for these): https://amzn.to/3ASCBa3PA SystemFender: https://amzn.to/3zWnN93Samson: https://amzn.to/3uqttXVPeavey: https://amzn.to/3m81iJyJBL: https://amzn.to/2Wn5xI6Portable Mini Soundboard: https://amzn.to/39OhiunMini Projector: https://amzn.to/3F5VVTwProjection Screen: https://amzn.to/3F2MPqRStage Lights: https://amzn.to/3EZ03oFFlat Screen TV (sometimes you can get a great price on these during holiday sales, Costco is an option for their returns) : https://amzn.to/3ifoQuUSTAGE:Music Stand: https://amzn.to/3kPD7QAFiddle Leaf Fig: https://amzn.to/3idKwHJBulb Lamp: https://amzn.to/3zWlZgaPipe & Drape: https://amzn.to/3kP0HgmArea Rug (approx. 5'x8') - fit your decorSTORAGE:Storage Bins (quantity depends on how much you need to store): https://amzn.to/2Wm5n3IGAMES:Klask: https://amzn.to/3uvMd8oPing Pong (table not included): https://amzn.to/3B0rbkMAir Hockey: https://amzn.to/3ojQACcFoosball:  https://amzn.to/2ZCuJvvPopular Video Game Consoles:Nintendo Switch: https://amzn.to/3upc8ORPS4 (PS5 preferred if you can afford it): https://amzn.to/3ukxiOcNintendo Wii: https://amzn.to/3kS72rtXBox: https://amzn.to/3umHc1L*DISCLAIMER* These items were listed because of their size/portability/price/brand reputation/reviews.  Before investing into anything, always do your research to see what would work best for YOUR specific situation.  These are meant to be a great starting point, but might not fit every youth group or budget. **This episode is not sponsored.
