Student Leadership Conference 2024

     Inspiring biblical leadership

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

"May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you." Psalm 33:22SourceOfHope

Hope is a wonderful gift from God and a powerful tool of the Christian leader. When our hope is rooted in the Good News of Jesus Christ, our purpose and mission become much bigger than serving our own needs or the needs of our community. Our mission takes on an eternal value and inspires a hope-filled transformation of hearts and lives. The conference sessions explore this hope in the context of our identity, our community and our ministry as emerging leaders under the authority of God and His Word.

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 and inspire ongoing student leadership training. It will be important for you to plan with your student team now to prepare for this event.

slc group19Program 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 are provided with their own 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 the option to lead discussion groups of their peers or for younger students. Those 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. NOTE: We require contact information for the nominated student discussion leaders when you submit participant data.

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.
