Youth 2023 to be Held in Daytona Beach, Florida!

Planning for the National Youth Event is underway! In the coming months we will announce speakers, bands, and more for this national gathering for youth and their adult leaders. The YOUTH event only happens every four years, it’s a big deal. We would love you and your church to be at this event and demonstrate how amazing youth are by gathering to celebrate, worship, and fellowship no matter the obstacles!

The first YOUTH event for the youth of The United Methodist Church took place in 1988, and since the early 1990s Discipleship Ministries has organized the YOUTH event every four years. We are thrilled to share that this tradition will continue with YOUTH 2023 in Daytona Beach, Florida, from July 25-28, 2023!

Over the past eighteen months, we have shared in the collective uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic. That sense of uncertainty has been multiplied because of what some see as an uncertain future for our denomination. All the more reason to bring the spirit, energy, and resiliency of youth together in one place at the YOUTH event. We believe that the young people who come to YOUTH 2023 will set an example for the church itself – demonstrating how to come together in Christian fellowship and celebrate our shared call to grow as world changing disciples of Jesus Christ, no matter the obstacle. Consider this your invitation to be a part of that demonstration of the power of togetherness.We have our dates and location, next up we'll be putting together the lineup of speakers and artists who will lead our world-class worship and workshop times. Registration will open in 2022 and we’ve got some great deals at our event hotel. Eventually, you will be able to register for YOUTH 2023 from right here!
