We’re excited to announce Youth Pastor Diet 2020!

You’ve always been a little bit bigger, but back in high school the weight was blamed on football. Then you became a youth worker and the persona of humor-filled youth pastor embraces the bigger you. And ministry involves food. A lot of food. You hang out with a student and grab some Taco Bell. Of course you already had lunch with your spouse, too. You head back to the office and find Christmas candy everywhere. You get coffee with a volunteer. You eat dinner with the family, grazing throughout the evening then having another midnight snack since you’re up late working on your talk. Before you know it, you weight 326lbs.

OK, maybe that isn’t you – but it has been me before! I started the Youth Pastor Diet to help myself and other youth workers lose some of the weight. No more fat pastors!  Hahahahha … so starting January 1st, join youth workers, spouses and volunteers from all over the country in the 2020 edition of DYM’s Youth Pastor Diet competition and have fun losing weight in the New Year.

We’re hoping to lose 20,000 in 100 days from this campaign along. Get in on the fun and start the New Year off right losing some of that ministry weight! SIGN UP TODAY IF YOU’RE EVEN MILDLY INTERESTED and we’ll send out the details next week!
