Every four years, youth from throughout The United Methodist Church have gathered for four days of discipleship, fun, and fellowship at the YOUTH event. The event is filled with interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service opportunities, and fellowship time. Adult leaders who bring youth to our event can expect inspiration, support, and chances to authentically experience what it means to be part of the Methodist and Wesleyan family.
YOUTH 2023 will be an especially important year for you and your youth to be a part of this gathering. COVID-19 restrictions have limited youth ministry opportunities over the last two-plus years. YOUTH 2023 is a chance for your church to again experience cutting-edge speakers, amazing artists, and broaden your youth’s understanding of what they and their church are capable of!
YOUTH 2023 is open to all. We really do believe that every church and every youth is welcome. You will experience amazing hospitality and real expressions of what it means to care about others and our world because God first cared for us.
YOUTH 2023 will be in Daytona Beach, Florida from July 25-28, 2023. Click here for a more detailed schedule.
