What role do authors
play at DYM?

Authors are the life blood of Download Youth Ministry, and are crucial to how DYM works.

When a youth worker creates an amazing resource that crushes in their ministry, they submit it to our amazing Pipeline team! That allows us to pick the best, most relevant, and highest-quality resources to put on our store for youth workers everywhere!

How do you
submit your resources?

Follow these three easy steps!

Keep creating for your own ministry

Don't let your best resources collect dust on a hard drive! Send them our way, and we will work with you to make it available to thousands of youth workers around the world. The better it is, the higher chance it will be published!

Submit with the end-user in mind so it's ready to go!

Make sure your submission is clear, complete, and written with the end-user in mind so he or she can easily, quickly, and successfully customize it for his or her context (ie your logo and insider references are nowhere to be found). The more ready-to-go your submission is, the quicker we can publish it!

Follow the Submission Guidelines

Only resources that follow our Submission Guidelines (below) will be accepted into the editorial process. We lay out what we need for various resource types, making it easy for you to make your submission match!
