Celebrate cultural differences, while exploring the challenges we face living in a broken world
Youth participants of all cultures will build a multicultural community through showing love and grace while engaging in fellowship, worship, small groups, recreation and vespers at Multi-Cultural Youth Conference.

What's so special about Multi-Cultural Youth Conference (MCYC)? Like our other Youth Conferences, attendees will hear from outstanding keynote speakers, experience engaging worship, and small groups where they can dig into the conference theme at a deeper level. They will also experience claiming their own ethnicity and work with others who share it, to celebrate our varied backgrounds and ethnic origins.Through song, dance, skits and food ethnic groups share the richness and uniqueness of their culture during an evening celebration on Saturday of the conference.
The conference leadership is composed of youth and adults who represent broad categories of ethnic origin: Hispanic, Native American, African American, European American and Asian cultures each have young people and adults who plan and implement this conference.
