Have a question about KICKOFF?

What is KICKOFF?

KICKOFF is an evangelistic youth event bringing various youth ministries together for a night of large scale games and a Gospel message.

Everyone that attends will be placed into 1 of 4 teams, each represented by a team and colour. The four teams will compete against each other in various games throughout the event, accumulating points for their team. The Gospel message will be preached at around the halfway point of the event. The winning team will be announced at the end.


KICKOFF is an evangelistic tool that youth ministries can use to deliver the Gospel message to their teenagers, as well as allowing them to invite their friends along who may not typically go to a “youth group”. 

There is nothing more important to us than seeing lives saved and funnelled back into the local Church for discipling and growth. We desire to help different youth ministries from the same region to connect with each other and network.

Program Run Time

A standard church KICKOFF has a total run time of 2.5 hours. 2 hours of games and activities and half an hour of speaking, testimonies and follow up. For schools, the KICKOFF runs for 60 – 90 mins, pending on the school's timetable/desire.

The team requires 2 hours to set up before the event and a further 2 hours to pack up afterwards.


Word of Life has liability insurance for KICKOFF. This insurance covers KICKOFF as an indoor event.


Church & Youth Groups

As part of Word of Life’s marketing and publicity of KICKOFF on our website and on social media, we require photography and videography. By agreeing to run KICKOFF for your church/youth group, you agree to being filmed or photographed which may be used for marketing or promotional purposes. If there are any concerns, contact us.


We understand some parents request the school not to have their child’s photo taken and uploaded to social media or used for promotion. Consequently, all photography taken at KICKOFF will be censored to protect each student’s identity. If you have concerns regarding photography of KICKOFF in the school, please contact us.
