Team Building Event with Manta: Digital Scavenger Hunt

Manta held their annual sales meeting in Columbus this year. The managers wanted to include a team-building activity to help their team members have fun and connect.

MobileXpeditions designed an amazing experience that allows team members to compete in a digital scavenger hunt known as fōnhunt using their smart phone's browser or texting on a regular phone. 

MobileXpeditions invited The Eureka Games to facilitate an energizer and debrief discussion. The scavenger hunt ended with a happy hour and simple debrief discussion. 

The group had a great time and laughed as they shared their stories.


Team Building Event with Grant Family Medicine Residency

Faith Building Event with The Vineyard – Joshua House – Loud & Clear small group bible study

I was introduced to an amazing group of 20-somethings that stem from the Joshua House at Vineyard Columbus. Loud & Clear meets once a week to discuss lessons from the Bible and how they can live those lessons out in their everyday lives. They were gracious enough to let me visit and eat brownies (thanks Paul) and lead the Eureka Games. 

After a name game we experimented with leadership and followership.
As it turns out listening is a crucial characteristic of leading and following.


The group then worked together like one body to complete a simple, yet tricky objective. 

We closed the night with a discussion about how important it is to be a servant-leader, as well as someone who sets an example when it comes to following. 

Play the take-home version:
One of the great things about being a child of God is that he uses us to influence and impact one another. We all help each other grow. 
  • How can you work to build Leadership/Followership in others?
  • How could you be a person who helps others lead/follow?
