  • Sadly, Gov. Kate Brown banned all gatherings larger than 250 and the host church is not comfortable with hosting any size group at this time. We trust that God will work all things for the good for those who love Him…
  • Live Stream Details. We are trying to get as many people as possible to host live streaming events. The more people who watch the conference, the more we keep the momentum and heart of the Christian Youth Summit going–to equip youth to stand firm in their faith and impact our culture with the hope of Christ.
