Jr. High

National Junior High Conference (NJHC) brings together junior high youth and advisors for a faith formation experience.

Sr. High

Christian Citizenship Seminar provides high school aged students and their advisors the chance to explore the relationship between faith and a particular political issue, and then act from a faith perspective regarding that issue.

National Youth Conference (NYC) gathers high school aged youth and advisors from across the country for a week long worship and fellowship extravaganza Brethren style!

Young Adult

Young Adult Conference (YAC) offers people ages 18-35 the chance to worship and fellowship over Memorial Day weekend.
