- Bible Study Resources⎯Our offering of Bible Study Resources has grown and is growing! This Fall and Winter will see us launch a number of new resources with many more on the horizon.
- Training⎯Weâre delivering training through the ym360 Blog, through Training seminars, and through our Youth Ministry Essentials line of resources.
- Networking⎯Spotlighting other people and organizations doing awesome youth ministry is part of who we are. Weâve done this over the past two years and will continue to do so.
- Community⎯Through conferences, social media, and good olâ fashion relationships, weâve been blessed to watch the ym360 Community grow and flourish.
The ym360 Store Comes âIn-houseâWhen we launched ym360, our friends at Simply Youth Ministry generously offered to process our Bible study resource orders until we were ready to take it on ourselves. Weâre indebted to them for the help getting started. But weâre extremely excited to be bringing our sales and customer service under the ym360 roof.
Integrating The ym360 Blog And Home PageFor the last two years, the ym360 home page and the ym360 Blog have been separate pages. Weâre marrying these two platforms in a seamless presentation that will create HUGE value for you.
Increasing The ym360 Blog FunctionalityWeâre pumped about these new additions:
- Pin-point search feature for our 500+ youth ministry articles
- âSubscribe To Commentsâ function
- Enhanced âEmail articleâ feature
- Integrated âPrint Articleâ feature (finally!)
- Subscribe to specific categories of posts via email
Enhanced Networking PartnersThe new site will be even better at focusing on Networking Partners, including our awesome group of ym360 Blog Contributors.
Featuring Hand-Selected Youth Ministry ResourcesIn addition to our expanding line of Bible Study and Training Resources, the ym360 Store will offer hand-picked resources from other resource providers that meet our standards for quality content and value.
Introducing More User Friendly ExperienceOn the new youthministry360.com, youâll notice these improvements in user experience:
- Complete design overhaul new with more intuitive navigation and user interface
- âDownloadableâ as well as âPhysicalâ purchasing options on all ym360 Bible Study Resources
- A âCreate An Accountâ feature for storing all your free ym360 downloads, tracking purchase history, enhanced blog interaction, and more
- A âLive Chatâ feature if you need help or just want to say âhi.â
Because of all the work weâre doing to launch the new youthministry360.com, youâll notice some of our daily behavior will change over the next four weeks, especially on the ym360 Blog. Weâll still be offering awesome daily youth ministry content, some of it new. But some dayâs articles may be a re-post, while others may link to a cool post on another blog or website. We appreciate your understanding and are here to answer any questions you may have. All in all, weâre extremely excited about where ym360 is headed. And the new youthministry360.com is just the start. We mean it when we say it, itâs a privilege to serve you and to serve with you. God Bless You and Your Ministry,
Les Bradford and Andy Blanks youthministry360 Co-Founders, on behalf of the ym360 Team
