SPDYM is the Youth Ministry/Department of the Southern Pacific District, a non-profit Assemblies of God District headquartered in La Puente, California. Since 1971, our Youth Ministry department has served local church leaders in Southern California, Nevada, and Hawaii to equip and empower them for effective youth ministry through a variety of camps, retreats and conferences, seminars, and workshops on leadership, discipleship, and evangelism.
SPDYM oversees 420 local church youth ministries all across Southern California, Nevada, and Hawaii, largely composed of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Hispanic/Latino American youth. With well over 12,000 youth and over 300 youth workers in our District, SPDYM serves the local churches and youth leaders through organized geographical regions and sections for proficiency in communication and resource distribution. Regional and Sectional leaders form the SPDYM administrative leadership team and facilitate communication and ministry networking within each region/section. We strive to be a Spirit-filled multi-cultural community committed to empowering youth to fulfill the great commission.
