photo caption contest


a couple of weeks ago, the SYM team took a half day off of work to indulge in some of the goodness that the Orange County Fair brings our way each july. between andy's turkey leg, pregnant pigs, and deb's cinnamon roll, it was good times.

but here's the deal, we'd love for you to share in the fun that we had at the fair. below are 3 of the best pics we took throughout our little adventure. we'd love for you to provide captions to the pics by leaving us a comment.

winner of each caption will win $250 in downloadable resources from SYM. bring your funny!

new snapshot to be released soon!


our first major overhaul of SnapShot will be released in just a few days... here are a couple of screenshots of what you can expect...

(image) (image) if you're already a SnapShot user, you should see the changes when you log into your account some time next week. here are some of the changes you'll see...

  • 22 templates total, with the ability to still create your own templates.
  • flash-like elements on every template [every template has some sort of moving element]
  • the ability to have background music on every template
  • new tutorial videos to walk you through the SnapShot building process
  • easier to use media gallery
look for all of these changes to SnapShot within the next week. as always, we're looking for ways to make SnapShot the best website building tool available. if you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear them!

video curriculum


we're kicking around the idea of a video small group curriculum. our initial thoughts are to have a 10-minute intro video that gives the lesson or background to what the students will study that evening, then a time for discussion, etc.

any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

new articles


several new articles are now posted live on the site! the newest article comes from jim burns and deals with balancing your duties at the church with your family. definitely worth the read!

also check out the 3 new articles posted in the from the field section. good, practical advice from in the trenches youth workers.

finally, check out the newest article from Chuck Bomar titled Graduating from Church. Great advice from a veteran youth worker on helping graduating high school seniors make a successful transition in their faith.

LHGH update


lots of fun stuff happening with Life Hurts God Heals right now. the new testimony DVD is close to being wrapped up as well as the new files themselves. we should be releasing these to the printer in just a couple of short weeks!

CD on Demand


CD on Demand is here! we've added a new service for our downloadable orders here at SYM. from now on, when you order any downloadable item from SYM, you will have the option to order a backup CD along with it. the backup CD will have all of the same files as the download.

if you don't want to make your own backup, this service costs $9.95 per order (not per item). price includes shipping as well.

just add a downloadable item to your shopping cart and you'll see the CD on Demand option appear... check it out!

would love to hear any feedback you might have!

LHGH additional elements


so we're getting pretty close on finalizing the new and improved Life Hurts God Heals. here's what's included in the kit...

  • 16 practical resources on starting a Life Hurts, God Heals ministry, recognizing danger signs in teens, and reaching them with Christ’s love
  • DVD with student testimonies about the Life Hurts, God Heals program
  • Eight 30-minute sermons by Doug Fields in MP3 format
  • Teaching transcripts of each sermon
  • Leader Guides in PDF and Word formats
  • Student Workbooks (13 lessons) in PDF and Word formats
we're adding a few more testimonies to the DVD as well as giving the curriculum an all new look and feel.

is there anything else that would be helpful with this curriculum? we'd love your feedback.
