National Youth Conference (NYC) registration opens in a little over a month. Sample registrations are available online at www.brethren.org/nyc . NYC is a Church of the Brethren conference held every four years for youth who have completed grade 9 through the first year of college or age equivalent, and their adult advisors.

The sample NYC registrations give a look at the registration forms and exactly what information will be needed to register. Registration opens Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. (central time). Don’t forget you’ll receive a free drawstring backpack for registering by Jan. 21 at midnight!

Speakers for NYC 2018, which takes place July 21-26 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo., are being announced every Tuesday via NYC’s social media accounts--Faceebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.
