The onsite, walk-up registration fee is $20.   

 

Is the conference really just $10?

Through the generosity of Lifeway Students and other sponsors, this conference is being provided at just a $10 admin fee to all attendees who register in advance, $20 at the door.  Lunch is provided, but you are on your own the rest of your meals as well as lodging if needed.

Please note that the $10 administrative fee has been added this year to ensure we can effectively manage the continous growth of YPS. Youth Pastor Summit is still a gift from us to you; however, this administration fee will allow us to continue serving you with excellence as we manage a larger number of registrations.

Also note that the administrative registration fee for YPS is non-refundable and is due at the time of registration to secure your spot for the event.  We are unable to refund this administrative fee if you are unable to attend this event (regardless for the reason for cancellation).
