YOUTH 2023 Location, Dates to be Announced Soon

By Chris Wilterdink

Plans are moving forward for the next YOUTH event in July of 2023! Young People’s Ministries and Discipleship Ministries are in final negotiations with locations and dates. We will announce before the end of August (2021) where and when the next YOUTH event will take place. We can tell you that YOUTH 2023 will take place during July 2023, after the Fourth of July holiday.

We know announcements are coming a bit later than normal for the next quadrennial United Methodist YOUTH event, but no matter what surprises COVID-19 still has left and whatever shape our Methodist family takes after General Conference in 2022, the YOUTH event will take place in 2023 and be an amazing event for all youth from sixth to twelfth grade (and their adult leaders) to gather for worship, fellowship, and discipleship.

We believe youth have the natural spirit to come together in the face of any obstacle to celebrate the good news that comes from doing the Christian life in community.

Stay on the lookout in August, and make sure that you are subscribed to Young People’s Ministries emails for announcements about dates, locations, themes, and applications to join the Design Team for YOUTH 2023!
