Young Adult and Campus Ministries Leadership Conference 2023

June 20-23 | San Diego


Conference Theme

As we gather together, we will be exploring how we can live into this theme in our lives and in our ministry settings. It comes from Isaiah 55:12-13

“For you shall go out in joy and be led back in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall burst into song, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall be to the Lord for a memorial, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
