Student Leadership Conference 2024

Our annual Student Leadership Conference is an in-person event. Registration opens on March 1, 2024. Space up to 220 participants is available for both of the 2 events in consecutive weeks. Register early to reserve your space!

Theme: TBA


A Christian leader does not lead for his or her own advantage, or on the basis of his or her own abilities, but with a strong sense of God’s purpose and enabling. Having a deeply rooted trust in God enables leaders to remain humble in the face of success and praise, perseverant during times of difficulty and opposition, and to build relationships of trust with others.

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.

registerREGISTRATION online - open from March 1

     Sep 25-28 OR Oct 2-5, 2024 (for ages 13-18 both weeks)

NOTE: The September event is usually filled by June 1. Register early to reserve space for your group!

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.
