What to expect

Youth Leaders Summit is an incredible conference! This will be our 3rd annual event and each year it gets better and better. Our goal is to inspire you to Reach Your Peak! To give you tools to build an amazing God glorifying program that introduces students to Jesus.

The conference will be held in Rosemount, Minnesota February 27 & 28th 2015. We can’t think of a better time of year to connect with friends, old and new, than just over the halfway point through the programming year. We can’t promise sunny walks on the beach but we can promise you inspiring talks from amazing people doing amazing things!

You’ll hear talks from people who are ‘doers’ and risk-takers. They will be sharing their inspiring stories with successes and failures on how they have built their programs, services, and projects.

What's included

Your ticket comes with more than just entrance in to the conference. You will receive a welcome bag filled with resources, snacks, welcome packet and more. You’ll also get the official Youth Leaders Summit 2015 t-shirt. You will have a chance to win some cool stuff multiple times a day. Your ticket to Youth Leaders Summit does NOT include a hotel stay, you must book that separately. We highly suggest the GrandStay Hotel, located 10 minutes from the conference in Apple Valley (details above).

We will also be doing a bunch of fun activities for networking and talking with other youth workers to share ideas and resources.
