TLC Mission

Teen Leadership Conference is entering its 50th year at Clarks Summit University. The leadership conference was started with one purpose—equipping students to be leaders in their communities. Individuals who attend TLC receive biblically saturated teaching, interactive workshops and worship; along with activities and games. The programming of TLC has been designed to provide an outlet for students and their youth leaders to engage, edify, encourage and push one another to become biblical leaders. TLC has existed because of God’s faithfulness. It’s never been about one person, it’s about the God-honoring program we provide.


3:00–6:00 p.m. on Monday in the Recreation Center. Please plan to arrive between those hours.
Registration changes/substitutions must be cleared with the TLC Secretary.


TLC concludes on Saturday at 9:00 a.m.
Because we design the entire week to build to a climax on Friday evening, please do not make plans to leave until after the final wrap-up in the dorms that evening. In order to prepare our campus for the next week’s events, we ask that you be on your way home by 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.


Pray before you get to TLC and ask God to do something unbelievably amazing in your hearts this week. This is a week to focus on God, His Word and spiritual growth. Please do not bring anything on campus that could be distracting to what God might want to do in your hearts during the week.

What To Bring

Bible, notebook, pen/pencil, sleeping bag, pillow, towels, toiletries and other personal items, fan, recreational clothing. Spending money for the Underground Cafe, Byrdies, TLC apparel and other snacks.


Clarks Summit University desires students to dress in a manner consistent with biblical principles of modesty. The specific guidelines included below are shaped by those biblical principles, community preferences and cultural expectations and personal safety.  There is a subjective element to these principles and our staff reserves the right to assist students in appropriately applying these principles for Teen Leadership Conference.

  • Clothing should modest – and must not be short, tight, or revealing.
  • The following list is a non-exhaustive set of examples to guide students as they consider appropriate dress at TLC:
    • Tops should not be low-cut or tight-fitting
    • Midriff, underwear, and buttocks should not show
    • Sweatpants should not be tight-fitting or revealing
    • Shorts should be fingertip length or longer
    • Skirts and dresses should be to the top of the knee
    • Clothing with holes should not reveal skin that is normally covered by shorts
  • Clothing should be gender appropriate.
  • Clothing should not have slogans that are inconsistent with CSU values.
  • Students wearing Spandex for exercise should have loose-fitting shirts and shorts over top (spandex should only be worn for exercise).
  • Pajama pants are only to be worn in the dorms.
  • Shoes must always be worn in buildings (except inside dorms).
