The Diocesan Youth Ministry Advisory Council or DYMAC, is composed of teenagers from throughout the Diocese of Knoxville who with the guidance of Deanery Coordinators of Youth Ministry and the Diocesan Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministry plan entire youth events, such as summer God Camps, Catholic Youth Camp (CYC), Winter Middle School Retreat, the Diocesan Youth Mass and trip to the National Catholic Youth Conference. DYMAC is responsible for planning and implementing these events from start to finish including such areas as icebreakers, menus, t-shirts, activities, retreat themes, and so much more! In addition to DYMAC meetings, serving on DYMAC is a year long commitment to participate in parish youth ministry, monthly deanery meetings and a variety of diocesan and deanery youth events.
