Every youth worker we know is full of creative ideas to minister to students. That’s why we created the YS Unconference. It’s designed around collaboration, discussion, and relationships. It isn’t about lectures or training but rather about learning from each other, identifying and solving problems we share in the field of youth ministry. Rather than a committee planning the direction of the event from the top down, the event “self organizes” from the bottom up.
The experts at a YS Unconference are you! All we do is create the space for it to happen and provide lunch for $10.
We’re looking for host churches for the 2015 YS Unconference season. If you’re interested in hosting in one of these cities, let us know.
If you’re like me when I go to a convention or conference some of the best moments are not the general sessions and seminars. Often I find energy at a convention to be the “in between” spaces like meals and breaks when paths cross and spontaneous meetings happen. Like, during a coffee break, that’s when the sparks fly!
~Mark Matlock on why YS Unconference is such a unique experience
The thing that makes YS Unconference unique is that there's no agenda when you walk in. The youth workers who come together for the day determine what's important to them, and that's when the agenda is built.
We exist to connect teenagers to God, each other and communities through life-changing Christ-centered mission trips. We invite your group to serve with us this summer at one of over 70 sites across the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.
