Love it!

Keep doing awesome stuff, DYM! I love that they actually answer questions from youth workers and have a clear heart for seeing youth pastors succeed!

Learning From Legends

If you can't or don't want to do video, do the audio version. I prefer to watch video on this one because of the banter and seeing their expressions, but you really won't lose anything listening. I feel like I get to sit in on a staff meeting with some of the most influential voices in youth ministry. Thanks for this gift DYM staff. You make it feel like I'm not walking alone!

Breakthrough, a dissapointment ,

Must watch

So funny, practical, and insightful!
