Student Leadership University has been privileged to host Youth Pastor Summit (YPS) for youth pastors and their teams for the past 22 years. Youth Pastor Summit, valued at $300, is provided as a gift to youth pastors, youth workers, youth volunteers, and educators as an encouragement and investment in those who are making a lasting impact in the lives of students. This is a two-day conference that includes speakers, labs, worship, lunch, and free resources for student ministries.

FAQs

What meals are provided?

Through the generosity of our Event Sponsors, lunch is being provided on the second day. 

Can I come to YPS if I have not registered?

We do allow walk-up registrations the day of the event as long as YPS has not reached capacity. While meals or resource bags are not guaranteed for walk-up registrations, you will be able to enjoy all other aspects of YPS. We hope to see you there.

 

Can my organization be an exhibitor at this event?

If you would like more information on how your organization can become an exhibitor at YPS, click here to download the 2019 information packet of levels and to apply online. 

Can my spouse attend?

Of course! We love when families do ministry together. Make sure you register them under their separate account so they are guaranteed a spot. Each account is linked to an email address. 

 

Do I need to sign up for breakout labs in advance?

No. On the day of the event, breakout labs will be on a first come, first serve basis.  Two weeks before the event, you will receive an event briefing via email with descriptions to better help you choose the breakouts that would be best for you and your team.

How many can attend YPS from my ministry?

Because of space limitations with this event, we are only able to allow five people from one ministry to register and attend this event.   If you would like to bring more than five from your ministry, we suggest you register for one of other YPS events that do not have capacity issues. 

If through the registration process we see that more than five individuals are registered from the same ministry, we will contact the ministry leader to confirm which five should remain registered.   

Because this event has over 500 people on the waiting list each year we are unable to make exceptions to this policy. 

I have a small child, can they attend with me?

We think families are great, and time together is important.  Yet, this event is only for those who are 18 and older and who have graduated high school. We want everyone to have the best experience possible at this event, so please make arrangements to leave your children at home or arrange childcare for outside of the conference.

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. 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).
