Youth 2019 is a national conference for all United Methodist Youth exiting grades 6-12 in 2019 and their adult sponsors. This provides a 4 day discipleship, worship, Bible study, service opportunity, and life-changing fun! Participants can expect inspiration, support, and challenges to grow authentically as a world-changing disciple of Jesus Christ. It provides youth and youth leaders with opportunities to connect with each other, denominational leaders, and connectional agencies to help them discover the wide variety of ministries of the United Methodist Church.

If your church is interested in sending any youth to this event, the conference would like to help! The total cost (dependent on your groups’ plans overall) is $760.00/person. This includes the cost of the bus and driver, housing, youth 2019, food, and any extra provisions. (A spreadsheet used to determine cost can be provided if you would like to see it.) The conference is picking up $3000 of the total bus cost. They are also placing Youth 2019 as a special collection during Annual Conference this year. (Annual Conference is in June.)
Please contact Kathy Salazar if you would like to attend or sponsor a youth who would like to attend. Our goal is to fill the 56 passenger bus!
