Student Leadership Conference 2022

Our 24th annual Student Leadership Conference is being planned as an in-person event only. Registration opens on April 1, 2022. Space will be limited to 270 participants on-site, so register early!

Theme: The Steward Leader

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

“Steward” is one of the prominent images used in the Bible to describe the role and task of the leader.  The defining characteristic of a steward is that they faithfully use the resources of the Master to fulfill the purposes of the Master. At SLC 2022, we want to explore how this idea of faithful stewardship can be put into practice by young leaders in their schools, churches and communities.

SLC is a unique opportunity for secondary students to grow in their faith and in their leadership skills, and to fellowship and worship together with like-minded young people from many nations. SLC includes several main sessions, workshops, student discussion groups and time for fellowship and interaction between students and adults. Our desire is to serve your school through student leadership training. It will be important for you to plan with your student team now to prepare for this event.

register REGISTRATION online (opens April 1).

     Sep 28 - Oct 1, 2022 (ages 13-18)

NOTE: as of August 1, 2022 there is no space available! We will be in touch with you regarding cancellations from other groups.

You must have an active ACSI school membership to register.

Program for 13-18 year old students:
We have an SLC program which ensures that the experience for each grade level is appropriate and of the best quality. Students from age 13-15 are provided with their own workshops and discussion groups designed specifically for their needs, introducing them to the foundations of biblical leadership and the character qualities on which to build. Students from age 16 and up have discussion groups and workshops specifically for their age group as well.

We also provide training for older students who want to work and lead activities and discussions with the younger students. High school students who want to serve as discussion group leaders for either age group must participate in a short online training course beginning in early September.

Student Selection:
It is very important to begin your student selection well in advance. Please consider now how this will be done so that it most benefits your students and your school as a whole. 

The graduated pricing serves to encourage schools to think about selecting students early so that they will be better prepared for this event. We have many ideas for helping you prepare your students for SLC. We want each student to get the most out of this event, which can only happen with your excellent support, planning and prayer. NOTE: We require contact information for student discussion leaders because they must participate in a short online training course BEFORE the conference.
