Rodgers Youth Conference
July 22-24, 2024

A conference for junior high, high school, & college students

Experience God's Word come to life like never before through the lens of Science! Join us as we worship together, give away a few door prizes, make new friends from like-minded churches, and some over-the-top afternoon activities!

Your teens and college students are surrounded by sceptics, some of which might even be sitting in your Sunday School classroom wondering if the Bible is really reliable. This year’s Youth Conference is different than any conference we have done before! We are excited to partner with the Institute for Creation Research to bring an immersive and innovative approach to showing your students where the Bible meets science.
Following the optional breakfast at the church, our conference will kick off each morning at the ICR’s Discovery Center, where we will get to join together for worship, tour state-of-the-art exhibits and hear from leading researchers about how science confirms the truth of the Bible.
We will spend the afternoons taking in different activities. Tuesday’s outing will begin with a boxed lunch and fountain drinks at Top Golf in Allen and includes two hours unlimited game play. Wednesday’s activity includes a chicken tender buffet, bowling, game card, and two hours of unlimited attractions.
The church provides a fantastic supper on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings. We will combine with the Missions Conference for an evening service with uplifting worship and dynamic preaching.
The activity fee for this year’s conference is just $40 per person! Space is limited and due to meals being prepared off-site, registration is now closed due to full capacity. Questions can be directed to Pastor Josh Pettijohn by call or text at 979-487-9213.
We hope this year’s Youth Conference equips the teens and young adults in your church to stand firmly on the truth of God’s Word, knowing that God has proven Himself time and time again, and His Word is completely true and trustworthy, See you in July!
This year’s Youth Conference activity fee is $40 per person.

About Our Conference 

Our Youth Conference launched in 1997 as an arm of the Missions Conference, recognizing that God is doing powerful work drawing young people to Him, and that there was a great interest from students in attending this conference. Over the last 25+ years, we have seen God work to save souls, call young men and women to ministry, and renew their walk with the Lord and service in their local church. We are already praying for God to move in a mighty way in this year’s conference as we meet this July.
Make the most of this summer and the time your students have away from school to make a spiritual investment in their lives! While most church camps are geared primarily toward evangelizing lost teens, you will find a different focus here.  is It is our joy to host another Youth Conference – an opportunity for your students to grow deeper in their walk with the Lord, be challenged to new commitments, and build relationships among brothers and sisters in Christ with other students from churches of like faith and practice.
