Youth Ministry Conference

It’s part-learning, part-laughing, part-connecting, all-access 3 days in Southern California
OCTOBER 19-21, 2021


Have you ever NOT really planned a youth ministry event, but needed to promote it or put it on the calendar so you went with…. “mystery night?” Well, here we are! While we do have some amazing experiences planned and a few unforgettable and remarkable things cooking, we’re simply going to shroud this in secrecy and promise… you’re signing up for a conference that is a little mysterious. You could ask one of the hundreds of youth workers who have gone to our  previous years’ DYM100’s… but it would only give you a shadow of the majesty that is DYM100.

Bottom line: We (Doug Fields & Josh Griffin) have a combined 60+ years of youth ministry experience, we love youth workers, we’ve put on dozens of conferences, we are working in the local church and want to keep learning with others, and we have some great friends who we have invited to come pour into you!

Why only 100? Because we want it that way. We’ve done conferences with several hundred and we’ve spoken at ones with several thousand… and we started DYM100 for something that was small enough where we could meet everyone and yet still feel big enough for a memorable gathering.

DYM100 is a gathering of youth workers unlike ANYTHING you’ve participated in before. It’s FUN, COMMUNITY, SURPRISES and TRAINING all wrapped into an unforgettable package you will talk about for years to come. Like some of the folks who have been to an event before.

“I really didn’t know what to expect. I received several items of good practical teaching elements. I laughed A LOT – which I NEEDED!”

James Olsen – Covington Bible Church

“The personal care and attention for the entire DYM staff. I really appreciate getting to spend individual time with Doug, Josh, and others that hosted the event. I know DYM cares for youth leaders like me, but this blew me away.”

Austin Lohrli – Grace Fellowship

“The fettuccini Alfredo was just OK. There wasn’t any butter for the massive rolls, so I ended up eating a basically dry roll. Not great.”

Conner McGraw – Third Baptist New York
