YOUTH 2019 is for all United Methodist youth, grades 6-12, and their leaders. 

Join thousands for four days of discipleship, worship, Bible study, service opportunities, and life-changing fun! Expect inspiration, support, and challenges to grow authentically as a world-changing disciple of Jesus Christ. Bishop Ough will also be attending.

The YOUTH Event is the National Gathering for United Methodist Youth. It happens every four years. YOUTH 2019 will provide youth and their leaders with chances to connect with each other, denominational leaders, and connectional agencies to help them discover the wide variety of ministries of the United Methodist Church.

The early registration fee is $319 through Jan. 31. The regular price will be $359 from February through March 2019, and late registration is $419 after April 1, 2019. Scholarships are available. Learn more about scholarships and keeping costs down here.

Youth who are rising 6th through graduating 12th graders as of the 2019-20 school year are eligible to attend. Adult leaders must be at least 21 years old or older, and preferably have a five-year age difference between themselves and the youth they are chaperoning.

The Love Well theme, which comes from Romans 12:9-10, will emphasize that youth come from different places, with different backgrounds, lives and dreams, but that does not mean they are divided. To Love Well means people work together and live out what Scripture says, no matter their differences. 

Headed to Youth 2019 from Minnesota?

Though we are not organizing a conference-wide effort to travel and attend together, we think it’s important to utilize resources for carpooling and lodging together. We’ve created a facebook event to help you connect with each other regarding this event:
