I'm Interested

HOST (2020)

All you need is a space to host and the ability to play a video. You can download the whole thing ahead of time, greet people at the door and press play. YOU create the welcoming environment and open the doors of your church. We’ll do the rest!

Does the content apply to college and/or children’s ministry volunteers?

YES! The primary focus of the day will be training adults who want to better care for the students entrusted to their ministry. Because the event is targeted for youth ministry volunteers, the terminology will be teenager-specific, BUT the application will be universal.

Can I adjust the number of volunteers I’m bringing after I register?

YES! Each lead youth worker can edit their registration total as the date gets closer using the link at the bottom of the confirmation email. We’d love for you to free up spots for other groups looking to attend in your area OR bring more of your leaders! The deadline for final registration adjustments is Wednesday, September 18th


What’s required of a host site?

Space to host and the ability to play a video. You can download the whole thing ahead of time, greet people at the door and press play. YOU create the welcoming environment and open the doors of your church. We’ll do the rest!

Is this a streaming event? We have terrible internet and I’m freaking out!

NO, this is NOT a streaming event. Our strategy is to get this everywhere: into rural areas with lower speed internet and into church basement youth rooms where the wi-fi is rough. So you can hit up a Starbucks with great internet, download the entire event, and simply press play on the day of! Yeah!

So, what kind of technology do we need?

A computer and a screen is all you need! Most churches are going to host it in their “main space”, whether that’s a sanctuary or shared worship center. Then again, if your youth room has a better sound system, go with that! Whatever works best for you and the amount of youth workers who sign-up for your location!

There are locations near me, but an hour away. Should I host?

For sure! Most groups will pile into a van and drive across town, maybe even a couple towns over, but 45 minutes to 1 hour is about the limit. So host it at your place! Get your church and others in your area involved and have a GREAT community-wide training day!

Will DYM help promote the training locations?

We will definitely do our best to spread the word and fill each host location. But there is an expectation that each site will invite their local networks and churches as well. Attendee registration will open in early 2019 at $99 per church. (Each church can bring as many volunteers as they’d like.) We want as many volunteers there as you can fit in your space!

What does the schedule look like? Would we have the flexibility to offer lunch and other options for our particular venue or are we required to stick to the schedule and itinerary provided?

The schedule is designed for it to be as easy on your host site as possible. If you provided an air-conditioned/heated room with decent screens or a projector, that’s enough. If you want to go all-out and provide meal(s), prizes, etc.—go for it! We’re thrilled that some locations are looking to go over-the-top!

What questions is my senior pastor going to ask about this?

We’ve covered a lot of questions (see above), but if you have additional questions, please let us know and we’ll update this FAQ with your question. Shoot us an email at [email protected]!

Will the videos be captioned?

Great news! We know that youth workers with hearing loss need and deserve training too. Simply request the captioned copy via email ([email protected]) and we’ll send you that version. It will be released a few days after the non-CC content. But it will be available! Please let us know you want it and you’ll get an email from us when it is ready.
