8. You have a pair of "dress chuckies" (and/or a item of clothes that you refer to as "your adult service outfit") 

7. You have ever started your day with a pile of nerf darts on your desk, that the maintenance staff found after your nerf wars night (a month ago!) 

6.  You have a preferred dodgeball account with Rhino skin. (or a standing order for "finger blasters"  that automatically ship to you ever 6 months)

4. You have ever cracked a fart joke during announcements. (in the adult worship service) 

3. You have more youth group, vbs, and camp t-shirts in your wardrobe than brand names ones! (the same goes for your sweatshirts...)
