We think it does… at least one that is unique… like this one! It all started with an idea over a weekend at a youth conference – 10 hours later the store was up and running and the rest is history. We created Download Youth Ministry to help youth workers win in their vital role by providing resources that are:

  • High in Quality: we won’t waste your time with inferior resources.
  • Easy to Use: Our files are yours to edit and customize to your ministry context
  • Inexpensive: We know what it means to work from a limited budget, DYM won’t break the bank!
  • Trench-tested: practical tools that have already been proven in an actual youth ministry.

Our resources aren’t as flashy as the stuff you’ll find from multimillion dollar publishers… and we’re totally OK with that. We’re youth workers and we value any tool that helps get the job done so we can spend more time ministering to students. We think you’re in the same boat.

We know our content is solid and it works–we’ve used it to strengthen our own ministries, and we’ve found other youth ministry friends who have given us their best material that do the same.

We really hope you find some of our stuff helpful to you and your ministry.
