Assuming your group is small enough to do multiple peer to peer tunnels:

Use a central server to maintain the list of IP addresses as they

When a change is detected, stop and restart each tunnel.  Active
connections over the tunnel should not be affected by the momentary
outage, if it is done right.  The tunnel IP address will not change.

Consider PPP over SSH for greater security than PPTP.  Latency may
increase, however.
