2020 March Student Conference Banner

The ENCOUNTER Student Conference is centered on Scripture and oriented towards small groups, allowing students to build community while engaging with God’s Word. At this Spring event, we will walk through the 40-Minute study Rising to the Call of Leadership.

This event is designed for students ages 12-18 (6th-12th grades) and adult leaders. To attend, students must be 12 years old by the date of the conference. An adult leader is responsible for the students they bring to the event—examples of leaders include pastors, parents, family friends, or youth volunteers. Adults may participate at NO COST because they are leading a small group of students. We offer 1 FREE leader registration for every 5 students registered! If adult leaders have less than 5 students registered by the time of the conference, we will contact them to collect payment for the Full-price ticket of $120.

As an adult leader, we will equip you to disciple your students during the conference. Prior to the event, we will send you the 40-Minute study and an optional training video. During registration and final small group time, we will provide training on how to lead the material throughout the weekend and when you return home.

Don’t worry students if you’re not able to come with a group, you can still attend! Individuals coming to the conference are placed in existing small groups led by our volunteers, so you will still have the same experience as other students.
