Hot Preaching. Changed Lives.

Preaching time at Youth Conference is not for entertainment.
Teenagers still need good, strong preaching! The guest speakers bring messages geared directly towards the needs of our young people.

Old-fashioned altar calls with an emphasis on Decision Time.

To the glory of God, hundreds of decisions are publicly made by teenagers each year during Youth Conference.

Whether it is salvation, surrender to God's will, repentance of sin, or renewing a walk with God...the old-fashioned altar call gives everyone an opportunity to solidify the decisions they have made.

Fun & Exciting Activities.

Your group is guaranteed to make some unforgettable memories.
Every game and activity is planned for maximum enjoyment. Have a great time mixing it up with hundreds of other young people.

"What an incredible week God gave us. Several important decisions were made by my group, not the least of which were a call to missions and another call to preach. The recurring theme of God still being able to use them no matter their circumstances was exactly what they needed. Thank you for all that you and the staff did this week to create an environment for the Holy Spirit to move."
