Youth Leaders Summit

As your students hang out with our college students, we invite you to take part in the Youth Leaders Summit. This will be an opportunity for you to attend workshops and hear from peers, our very own university professors, camp leaders, and pastors as they look to share insight, experience, encouragement, and what God has been teaching them lately. Our hope is that you leave refreshed, loved on, having new ideas and resources, and feeling His presence here on our campus. We look forward to you being a part of this incredible event!
