Our Mission: "Creating spaces for students to ENCOUNTER Jesus and RESPOND with their lives."

About Us

Dunwoody UMC's Youth Ministry exists to partner with families in supporting the growth of student relationships with Jesus. We realize that this partnership requires effort on both sides, and at DYM, we do our very best to provide a variety of creative ministry opportunities that help students fall more in love with Jesus each time they walk through our doors. We offer many different ways to get plugged in because we know that each individual student is in a unique place on their spiritual journey. We aim to meet students where they are and then help them GROW deeper in their faith.

Our hope is that you will find a ministry that you can get involved with this year. We don't expect anyone to participate in everything, but we DO want you to find at least one weekly ministry to participate in and fully commit to being a part of. If you have any questions about our ministry, please get in touch with us. We would love to share our vision and goals with you! We're excited about walking alongside your family on this faith journey. We look forward to supporting, challenging, and guiding you to grow in your desire to be more like Jesus.
