Discipleship Focused Youth Ministry  

DFYM is an approach that focuses in on Discipleship and uses the fruits of Discipleship to make more disciples.  This is the approach that Christ taught us.  While having the vision to reach the entire world, He did so by investing in a few (His Disciples).  Those Disciples then invested in others (Discipleship) in order to make more Disciples.  

ProjectYM exists to equip Catholic youth ministers for success
