Each February, the Northern Youth Conference hosts a 24-hour servant lock-in for 3rd through 6th graders from a variety of local congregations in our conference. This annual event draws 150+ children and youth and includes worship with a nationally known Christian artist and hands-on small group service projects in the community, food, fellowship and fun. Small groups are led by high school students with support from adult youth leaders and volunteers from the Northern Conference. This is an incredible annual event for children.

Registration is due by February 2 – please register today!
