National Youth Conference


It all began many years ago in Anderson, Indiana.…the birth place of National Youth Conference. Every four years, youth from all over the Church of the Brethren have gathered in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, Estes Park, Colorado, Ithaca, New York, Valparaiso, Indiana, Glorieta, New Mexico, and now in Fort Collins, Colorado, to worship, grow, change, be empowered, and to live more fully in the light and life of faith. Through the years we have gathered under all different themes.

In the traditions of past NYCs, it will be energizing, challenging, uplifting and unforgettable. You can take a trip down Memory Lane by looking at this complete list of past NYC dates, themes, and places.
