National Youth Ministries Conference


More than fifty years ago, Clarks Summit University began to reach kids for Christ through Teen Leadership Conference. In the summer of 1985, the idea of a network for youth ministry leaders was hatched by several youth workers who brought their youth groups to TLC. As a result, the first National Youth Ministries Conference was held that January in Ohio. We laughed together, worshipped together, learned together, played together and fellowshipped together.

This year we want to bring this old spirit back to the NYMC. We will be bringing back some experienced and engaging leaders who are still working to reach our youth. Let’s get together with old friends and make some new friends in ministry on the campus of Clarks Summit University during TLC. Join us as we again will learn, laugh and love on each other during the all-new National Youth Ministries Conference which will be held during this summer’s Teen Leadership Conference.
