Student Leadership University has been privileged to host the Youth Pastor Summit (YPS) as a FREE conference for youth pastors for the past 18 years. Hosted in partnership with Universal Orlando Resort. Youth Pastor Summit is a two-day conference that includes speakers, labs, worship, lunches and free resources for youth pastors. SLU does this event to invest in and encourage those youth pastors, educators, and youth leaders who are making a lasting impact in the lives of students.

Join us in Orlando, FL as thousands of Youth Pastors from across the East Coast gather together for two days of incredible worship, keynote sessions, breakout sessions and tons of free resources. It is our privilege to host YPS Orlando in partnership with Universal Orlando Resort and LifeWay Students so that there is absolutely no cost for you as a youth pastor to attend.
