The Diocesan Youth Movement (DYM) is a group of youth workers, young people and those involved with youth ministry who co-ordinate youth ministry initiatives in the Diocese of New Westminster.
The DYM leadership team meets monthly to plan upcoming events and keep each other up to date on what is happening in youth ministry around the Diocese and beyond. The current chair of the DYM leadership team is Lauren Pinkney, Children and Families Minister at Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver.


The Mission of the Diocesan Youth Movement is to energize youth ministry in the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster through partnerships, events and training. (THAT ROCK!)
