Youth Celebration is a conference for youth who have completed 9-12th grades. This conference begins on Sunday evening with the "Big Hello" and closes with the "Big Good-bye" on Friday morning. Each day is filled with time with the keynote speaker, small groups, free time, Back Home Group time and recreation events. Small Groups are a key feature of this conference providing youth with a chance to build community with people from other churches. In small groups youth are guided by adult leaders who facilitate building community, Bible study and discussions on matters of faith and life.
Theme: "Keep These Words" Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Keynote Speaker: Mark Yaconelli
Mark is: a writer, speaker, retreat leader, spiritual director, community activist, youth worker, storyteller, disco dancer, husband, and father. We are excited to have Mark joining us for YC2015. For more information on Mark go here.
