How did you meet your spouse?
What do you consider your best quality?

After scouring the web, this is, by far, the best group of ice-breaker questions I’ve seen. Thanks!!

Thank you for this valuable information. I’m about to embark on leading the first small group at my new church. Please pray for us!

Thank you, I will be using one tonight for a small womens group. Last year my icebreaker for a small group was: if you were a flower what kind would you be & why? Everyone enjoyed this icebreaker. For men you can change it to, if you were a tree what kind would you be & why? I also like one I was asked in a group which was, tell the group something about yourself that most people do not know about you. That led to many interesting funny respondes. Thanks again

if everything is connected to everything else,how can you be judged as a seperate thing?

Dyrell February 9, 2015 at 3:58 am

Why would judgment be based on connection?
Why would connection alleviate responsibility?

Dyrell February 9, 2015 at 6:34 am

Great List… I’m working on some ones that are really more than typical ice breakers, but actually may spark serious thought and discussion, like your #6 “If you could ask God one question right now, what would it be?”

Actually wouldn’t it be nice to start discussing questions like that at any party or gathering, even when there is no planned lesson later on?

Yes, I know that might not be the purpose of the defined ice breaker as we think of them- but I’m thinking expanding its role to provoke useful and intentional conversations when we are with others, rather than the usual small talk that seldom benefits much….
Just finished my thoughts on it here…

Tyson Hodge October 17, 2017 at 3:58 pm

Excellent point/idea. Maybe I will just start using questions like this in everyday conversation. *Girl at checkout: “did you find everything you needed today?” Me- “sure did……..if your house was on fire, what three things would you go back to save?”

No, but serious, I totally am going to try to squeeze these into everyday life.

If you are interested in 1100 icebreaker questions in an iPhone app, you might try “Let’s Talk” by Brain Sparks Labs. All are ‘G’ rated and organized for all types of groups.

can you give me an example of an icebreaker that is personal at first then will be paralleled to spiritual? or that will be connected in spiritual life of a person? actually,this is our assignment in the small group leaders meeting we have every sat.,i hope you could help me…thanks.

Vanessa February 23, 2016 at 12:45 pm

Getting ready to start another Financial Peace class and was looking for more ice-breakers and I came across yours. I will definitely use the above questions. Very welcoming and takes the pressure off. Here is one we are also using for our class:
My name is?
Go around the group and ask each young person to state his/her name and attach an
adjective that not only describes a characteristic, but also starts with the same letter of his name e.g. generous Grahame, dynamic Dave. Write them down
and refer to them by this for the rest of the evening. 🙂

I am going to be a Christian cabin leader and I am so using these questions for my campers every night. Thank you.

Ann Sellers July 28, 2016 at 6:38 am

I am having a group of ladies at my home just for pure fellowship and I wanted something for us to talk about instead of kids, work, politics, these questions are great for conversations as well. Thanks so much.

Just found this after searching the topic. My wife and I are small group leaders again after taking a few years off and I’m looking for some for our upcoming meeting.

One of the ones we used that lead to much discussion and interest was to ask each person to share something impressive about their spouse that most other do not know. That was a great one and learned a lot about each other. The next week the ice breaker was somewhat the opposite – to share a quirk about their spouse. Keep in mind we prefaced this ice breaker to be careful and considerate to your spouse. But this one was hilarious and really brought the group much more closer and comfortable. We saw true friendships begin and really grew strong after that.

I love it! Thanks for sharing Jason.

This is the best site. I have led Stephen Ministry for a number of years and know first-hand how warm up questions begin to establish trust and make for great small groups with lasting friendships.
