WE GET IT. YOUTH MINISTRY IS HARD.

IT’S HARD TO STAY AFLOAT IN MINISTRY WHEN YOU’RE THROWN IN WITH:

  • NO TRAINING
  • NO COMMUNITY
  • NO SUPPORT

You’re passionate about two things:
teenagers and Jesus.

You want your program to be successful and reach as many teens as possible.

You desire to bring them into relationship with Christ.

And you want your parish and your community to understand and support your vision for youth ministry.

AT PROJECTYM, WE SHARE YOUR PASSION.

WE BELIEVE THAT YOU MATTER.

WE BELIEVE THAT YOUR MINISTRY IS IMPORTANT.

WE BELIEVE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO DO IT ALONE.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

THRIVERS GET BIG BONUSES WHEN THEY SIGN UP*

A HUGE DISCOUNT ON GROW + COMPANION RESOURCES!

There are a LOT of youth ministry curriculums out there. It’s crazy how many…

We get asked all the time about which curriculum people should choose for their ministry – while there’s no “one size fits all” answer, I can tell you the curriculum WE USE in the parishes we run programs in: GROW.

It is an amazing resource for youth workers! More than just a curriculum, it’s a comprehensive system to grow your students and your ministry.

The curriculum is “series-based” – with 13 different series included (that’s 50 weeks of content). Each week of curriculum content includes teaching outlines, small group questions, promotional graphics and videos, game ideas, media suggestions, and tons more.

But that’s just the beginning: Grow also includes amazing planning tools, strategy guides, meeting outlines, parent events, shopping lists, and much more!

THRIVERS SAVE $300 ON GROW CURRICULUM AND STRATEGY!

Plus you’ll get our monthly Catholic Companion Guide for Grow – giving you ideas and tips on how to integrate the beauty of the Catholic faith into Grow. Including: Catechism references, saint connections, Catholic prayers, and more

TOTAL VALUE: OVER $500!

A 33% DISCOUNT ON YDISCIPLE!

We love small groups! It’s the direction we think all youth ministers should be moving, but one of the hardest decisions about the move to small groups is: “WHAT CONTENT SHOULD I USE?”.

That question is now officially answered: Use YDisciple.

It’s hands down the best resource for you to use for your small groups. It will help you train your adults, launch small groups, and make young disciples.

ALL THRIVERS SAVE $100 ON THE NEWLY OVERHAULED YDISCIPLE!

TOTAL VALUE: $100!

A NEW SCREEN GAME EVERY WEEK FROM PROJECTYM GAMES!

Between preparing your teaching, wrangling up enough volunteers, and calculating how many pizzas you need to order – you’ve got enough to worry about!

What game you’re going to play tonight shouldn’t be one of them.

Because when it comes to games, ProjectYM Games has you covered with a fresh new screen game every Monday morning.

PLUS YOU’LL GET TO CHOOSE 3 GAMES FROM OUR EXISTING GAME LIBRARY!

TOTAL VALUE: $75!
