There are so many lame youth group names. Lame event names. Lame ministry names in church. I've decided that I don't like acronyms. I can think of stacks of good names that are simply words that may or may not have a deeper meaning. Eg: Proxy, Youth, Crossfire, Change, Velocity, Worthy, Flipside, United, Ignite, Wildside, Massive, Impact, Elevate, Revolution, Phat etc… I also think that generally ones with numbers in them are lame too. Especially ones that refer to the year group that is being catered for… eg. 68 (6-8), 79 (7-9), eleven50 (10-12 – too cryptic). I know of groups with numbers from Bible verses – such as 10:31 (from 1 Cor 10:31) – this is okay. I cannot think of a good acronym. I can think of okay ones… but generally acronyms are a bit 90's… like clip-art!
