Youth Conference Registration Now Open

Youth Conference Registration Now Open

Registration is now open for Hyles-Anderson College’s annual Youth Conference, a 40+ year tradition that brings hundreds of young people together for a day of fun, faith and decisions about their future.

The event is widely considered to be one of the founding youth events of its kind in the country, even receiving the nickname the “grand-daddy of them all” in the years since its inception. Activities for attendees include powerful preaching, soul-stirring music, hilarious skits, and faith-based experiences that can lead to life-changing decisions.

Over 40 years ago, a group of youth workers met with Dr. Jack Hyles to discuss the idea of a brand-new concept.  Pastors’ School had become an annual meeting for pastors and workers since the first meeting in 1964, why couldn’t the same type of meeting in the summer, but for teenagers? At the time, there were no events quite like this anywhere in the world.  Nobody had ever tried a youth conference before.  Would it work?  Would people come?  How long would it last?

The first annual Youth Conference was held at First Baptist Church in Hammond in June of 1973. A few hundred teenagers came and the phenomenon of an annual youth conference was started.  Since that summer, hundreds of thousands of teenagers have made the annual trip to Hammond for Youth Conference.

Since then, thousands of Christian workers have had their lives changed and are in the ministry today because of a decision they made at Youth Conference in Hammond.

The event is scheduled for July 12-14, 2016. For more information on how to register for the event, click here.
