National Youth Workers Convention (NYWC)


Join thousands of Youth Workers at NYWC in Memphis on Nov. 16-19th, 2017!

The National Youth Workers Convention (NYWC) has been training, equipping, and encouraging youth workers for more than 45 years as part of Youth Specialties.

This four-day event draws youth workers from around the world and from every denomination. NYWC attracts paid youth pastors, volunteer youth workers, youth ministry students, senior pastors and church leaders, and just about anyone else interested in helping teenagers find and follow Jesus.

NYWC features an amazing Big Room with enlightening speakers, inspired worship, and leading-edge entertainment. More than 50 seminars help equip, train, encourage and network attendees. Add to all this our Exhibit Hall with 100s of exhibitors providing attendees with a literal one-stop shop for Youth Ministry. Ultimately, attendees find a variety of perspectives and experiences, find strength from being together in Christ and explore big and small ideas to apply to their own youth ministry contexts.
