1. Personality Tests

Personality tests are a quick and fun way to get to know people. They can reveal important information, inspire self-awareness and provide a foundation for team building.

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment is a common choice among churches. It identifies four psychological functions: intuition, feeling, perception and thinking.

Another popular personality test is the DiSC assessment. It breaks personality down into different quadrants, including dominance, influence, conscientiousness and steadiness.

The Revised NEO Personality Inventory evaluates individuals based on the Big-5 personality traits: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. It also includes a “lie score,” which measures how honestly a person answers the questions.

2. Virtual Scavenger Hunt

A virtual scavenger hunt can be a fun way to get your team engaging and connected while working remotely. It also provides an opportunity for people to challenge themselves creatively, which can help them develop their critical thinking skills.

You can host a virtual scavenger hunt during a church Zoom meeting by sending out a list of items to find and challenges to complete. Teams have to hunt down all the items on the list and submit their submissions before time runs out.

Another variation of this scavenger hunt is to send out a list of 16 items that represent the resurrection. Have your team take a photo of themselves with the items and share it on social media. This activity can be used for Holy Week and Easter and is a great way to encourage families to bond over this important holiday.

3. Binge-Watching

Binge-watching is a type of watching that involves watching multiple episodes of a television series or movie in a short period. It is often done with online streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu.

Streaming platforms have made binge-watching easier than ever, and this is one of the most popular ways people spend their free time these days.

Binge-watching has been referred to as an escape behavior and can be related to Zillmann’s Mood Management Theory, which suggests that watching media content helps people regulate their mood. However, it has been shown that if people do not have the self-control to avoid binge-watching, they may develop addictive behaviors that can negatively impact their health.

4. Pet Rock

Nothing warms up a team meeting like a good old-fashioned icebreaker. And the best ones make your colleagues smile and forget their worries – and their work.

One of the best icebreakers is the pet rock. For this icebreaker, you need a few stuffed animals that are a little bigger than the average human.

Start the group with a couple of minutes to show off your furry friends and then get each person to give theirs a quick description. This might include the pet’s name, age, and where they got it. It’s also a great opportunity to get to know each other on a more personal level. You may even find out that you share a common pet with someone else on your team!

5. Music Playlist

If you want to take your church Zoom meetings to the next level, consider incorporating music into your icebreakers. Whether you use Apple Music or another service, there are playlists designed to soundtrack a variety of moods and activities.

Playlists can help you create a more focused environment by providing quiet music that allows people to enter into a calm state of mind. In addition, they can also encourage team collaboration and creativity by inspiring people to work together toward a common goal.

In addition, music can make you feel more powerful and in control, based on a study from Kellogg School of Management. Listening to the right playlists can make you more likely to take the lead during a debate.
