A day collaborating with local youth workers, and a FREE lunch!

All about YS Unconference

YS Unconference is a free, lunch-included, “pop-up” event for youth workers, in your area. We know that while some topics are hot across the nation, your community may be working through unique issues that could use some attention. YS Unconference is different than any other ministry event you’ve seen before because we don’t show up with an agenda – you set the agenda for the day, the YS team provides structure and direction, and together we tackle the biggest issues and concerns within your ministry.

Some topics we’ve explored in the past include reaching parents, multi-generational ministry, recruiting and retaining youth volunteers, cross-cultural youth ministry, and much, much more.

This spring, we are bringing Unconference to nine locations. Find details about each location and register below. For fall 2016, we are still looking for host churches to partner with us to bring this great event to their community. Interested in learning more about YS Unconference? Want to host a YS Unconference in your area? Call us at 888.346.4179.

It’s a free event, but we still need you to register so we can properly plan for an awesome day!

What is the YS Unconference?

Catch a glimpse at the YS Unconference experience in this special message from Fred Oduyoye, director of networking for YS.


YS Unconference is all about collaboration, discussion, and relationship-building. By the end of the day, you’ll have a stronger network of support and a better understanding of how to tackle the big issues in your youth ministry.
