"There are many things that separate the YiM Student Leadership Conference from countless other youth conferences, but the most influential aspect is Leadership. While many conferences are still teaching Christianity 101 to seniors coming out of high school, YiM is taking students deeper in every aspect of the word. YiM is a place for students who have a desire to serve God with their talents to get hands on training on how they can do just that! Along with leadership, the small group atmosphere builds a community of connected students and adults, forming bonds that will not fade. My students are still talking with friends they made at YiM, and through social media have been connecting like never before! If you attend YiM, prepare to be impacted in a way that you will never forget."

"As always, Youth in Ministry comes out on top! My students have come back from this conference with an even greater passion for Christ, and a confidence to be leaders in the church. I've seen Youth in Ministry work in my life and in the lives of students all around me. This is a conference that brings the best out of students and can truly transform lives. Christ is truly at work here! If you have a student who has leadership potential, this is where they need to be!!"
Chris Wells, Student Minister, First Christian Church, Kissimmee, FL
"I just want to thank you for the YiM Student Leadership Conference. All four of my girls had an amazing week. On the Sunday following the conference, one student came before the church stating that she realized that she was not doing everything she should as a follower of Jesus Christ and that she wanted her church family to know that she was making a stronger commitment to follow God's will in her life. I think she taught our church more than any sermon ever could. You should know that the YiM Conference has made a great contribution to the lives of my four students and to our church."
Brandon Perry, Boones Creek Christian Church, Gray, TN
“After returning from the Youth in Ministry Student Leadership Conference, our students are more excited than ever about God’s calling! During their week-long experience, they were encouraged to discover their strengths, they made great new connections and friendships with adult mentors as well as with other students from around the country, and they learned more about applying Biblical principles to their everyday lives. I plan to send an even larger group of teens next summer. Thanks, YIM!”
Matt Agnew, Student Minister, Capital City Christian Church, KY
"I want to extend a huge 'Thanks' to the Youth in Ministry Student Leadership Conference. When my four students got back from this week-long experience, they were refreshed and reinvigorated in their faith. Each student came back with a better understanding of their God-given abilities, purpose, and calling in life. This conference brought out the best in my students & gave them direction moving forward in their relationships with God. If you have a student who is interested in leadership & deepening their faith, the Youth in Ministry Conference is the place for them to be. I'll definitely be bringing our church back next year."
