You've hit the nail on the head with the group chat problem. Among my students, a surprising number of them are not on social media or have limited social media access (its an unusual group of kids and definitely not a typical youth ministry situation), but group texts/DMs aren't only ubiquitous among the kids, but even youth leaders even run group texts with the students they lead. Keeping that one kid without a phone informed and in the loop apart from the group text is a challenge sometimes.
