If it’s your first time to our annual gathering of youth workers, or you are returning once again to the annual pilgrimage of community, encouragement, laughter and training…

you are welcome here.

Every year for the past 5 decades or so, youth workers have gathered under one roof for training, resources, spiritual refreshment, and community. Since before you were born there have been youth workers laughing and learning, exchanging knowing glances, and learning from one another as one big happy family.

This year, we’re bringing the family together once again! 

November 15-18 
America’s Center Convention Complex
701 Convention Plaza
St. Louis, MO 63101

We will also be bringing:

New ideas. New leadership. New life. New schedule.
More accessibility. More laughter. More rest. More space.
More of the old YS favorite moments.
More of everything you love. More of what you need.
There will be some familiar faces, some old, some new.
We’ll honor the past, converse about the present, and dream about the future.
This is OUR time to network, play, think, laugh, enjoy one another, and sit around the table and talk shop (just don’t bring up attendance numbers, because nobody likes that person) and we would love for you to join us because it’s not really family unless all of us are there.

We’re thrilled to welcome you
back home to NYWC.

WHAT'S NEW

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE.

We’ve curated a new schedule that will allow you to pace yourself for what serves you best: content, conversations, or rest. You will be able to choose from breakouts, panels, discussions, personal spiritual direction, professional coaching, leadership development, and more.

Doug Fields and the crew from Orange & Downloadyouthministry.com are teaming up with some long-time YS friends to bring back some of the old YS Legacy as well as lead into the future of Youth Ministry. The team is made up entirely of youth workers with decades of experience who are passionate about creating a unique conference specifically for you.

Pricing.

We’ve been in youth ministry long enough to know that it’s tough to afford conferences. We’re pricing NYWC as low as we can (and still survive), we’re getting great hotel deals ($139/night + tax) where you can cram more in your rooms, and we’re uncovering some scholarships to provide aid where we can. We’re negotiating everything with your limited budget in mind. Hotel booking links coming soon!
