Have you ever sat at a table with a group of people and felt the conversation at the table stall after you all got past the normal niceties? (What do you do? How many kids do you have?)
My favorite icebreaker games give participants a chance to discover new things about each other.
The “Who here?” Icebreaker gives everyone a chance to bond instantly over shared likes/dislikes.
I opened up Pinterest recently and groaned when I saw the “Bible games” in my feed.
I know you’ve seen them – Bible Jeopardy, Bible Trivia, Match the Bible Couples, etc.
I recently returned from a women’s ministry retreat with another church. This icebreaker is one that was shared during our time together.

My love for icebreakers has never been a secret.
I even recently shared Why Women’s Ministry Events Need Great Icebreakers.
Here’s the thing though, not all icebreakers are great.
As Women’s Ministries strive to be more relevant some have chosen to eliminate icebreakers and games.
Can I suggest that we not be so hasty?
During a Women’s Ministry event, do you ever look around the room and notice a lack of conversation?
Are women stuck in the same groups of familiar faces?
“Meet Your Match” gently draws women out of their regular circle of friends by encouraging them to uncover matching experiences and interests with others in the room.
Years ago our MOPS group had a scavenger hunt in the parking lot! Our ladies raced out to the parking lot and laughed as they dug through the items in their cars trying to score as many points as possible.
