Join us for the DYM Youth Pastor Diet Contest starting NOW!
Prizes, Awards, Tips, Community!
A few years back I had the most success I’ve ever had when I started and hosted a community-wide youth pastor diet. It worked! I wasn’t alone. I was challenged to play, compete, and enjoy the connections with other youth workers who were feasting on pizza, Taco Bell, and donuts. I had a ton (really?) of fun. I want to do it again… and some of the DYM team is joining in!
Join us! Let’s get healthier in 2018!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We’ll add to this FAQ page as you have further questions. If you’ve got a question send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens after I sign up?
After you register for the contest on Downloadyouthministry.com you will be able to download the complete contest details. It includes details on the YouthPastor Diet website for your weight … AND… an invitation to our closed/private Facebook Group. Boom! So simple.
Do you have to be a full-time Youth Pastor to enter the contest?
Nope! We want youth pastors, volunteers, spouses… it’s more fun when it’s the youth ministry tribe—the larger community playing. So, invite whoever will help motivate and encourage you. The cost is only about 25 cents a day for the 90 days ($20).
Can I still join the contest after 1/2/18 <-- that was a few days ago!?!
Absolutely! Those who started on January 2nd will have a slight advantage over you, but this is a 90-day contest so there’s plenty of time to join us, jump in the competition, and have fun. Register now!
I heard from someone that I get my $20 back at the end of the contest. Where is that information?
The person who told you found that out once they signed up and downloaded the contest details. … but, you don’t actually get it back in cash… you get it back in DYM store credit. All you have to do is submit a weight every week to the website to show that you’re playing and still engaged in the contest. You don’t have to lose the weight… you just have to stay engaged in the contest and we’ll send you a $20 coupon.
I just paid my $20 and purchased the Youth Pastor Diet (female)… what happens next?
Wow… usually it’s the males who don’t follow directions. After purchasing on the downloadyouthminsitry.com website, immediately download the instructions right away by clicking on the “download now” link. Another way is to go to Account/My Downloads (once you’re logged on) and search by most recent purchase. Within the folder you download there is a PDF document titled YPDiet_Instructions.pdf. It has 2.5 very delightful pages of instructions, including the Facebook group access and weigh in information.
Don’t you guys know that fat loss is different than weight loss and it should be a fat loss percentage rather than a weight lost percentage?
Thank you for your question Arnold Schwarzenegger! Yes, we know muscle weighs more than fat, but since most people don’t have access to Hydrostatic weighing we’ve chosen the simpler route of using a scale for this contest. We also encourage people to note progress by (a) how their clothes feel, (b) how they feel, (c) how they look different in pictures, and (d) measurements (see: https://www.wikihow.com/Calculate-Body-Fat-With-a-Tape-Measure )
Doug seems like he’s in much better shape than Josh—is he participating too?
Absolutely! Doug and Josh work out together about 3x a week, and Josh eats about 3x as much as Doug. But, Doug is in this contest to win it!
