FAQs

Who should attend YPS?

The Youth Pastor Summit is geared to all Youth Pastors and Key Youth Leaders (staff or volunteers). It is also open to Christian educators. All attendees must be 18 years or older. 

Do I have to register in advance for this event?

We strongly recommend that you register early for YPS as some events do fill up within hours or days.   Yet, we will keep registration open until we are full.   And if there is space avaiable, we do allow walk-ups.   The registration fee for advanced registration is $10 and advanced registration closes the Friday before the event at 5 PM.   Walk-up registrations are handled onsite and the onsite registration fee is $20.  We only accept cash and exact change for Walk-up registrations.

Can I come to YPS if I have not registered?

We do allow walk-up registrations the day of the event as long as YPS has not reached capacity. While meals or resource bags are not guaranteed for walk-up registrations, you will be able to enjoy all other aspects of YPS. We hope to see you there. The onsite, walk-up registration fee is $20.   

 

Is the conference really just $10?

Through the generosity of Lifeway Students and other sponsors, this conference is being provided at just a $10 admin fee to all attendees who register in advance, $20 at the door.  Lunch is provided, but you are on your own the rest of your meals as well as lodging if needed.

Please note that the $10 administrative fee has been added this year to ensure we can effectively manage the continous growth of YPS. Youth Pastor Summit is still a gift from us to you; however, this administration fee will allow us to continue serving you with excellence as we manage a larger number of registrations.

Also note that the administrative registration fee for YPS is non-refundable and is due at the time of registration to secure your spot for the event.  We are unable to refund this administrative fee if you are unable to attend this event (regardless for the reason for cancellation).

What meals are provided?

Through the generosity of our Event Sponsors, lunch is being provided on the second day. 

Can my spouse attend?

Of course! We love when couples do ministry together. Make sure you register them under their separate account so they are guaranteed a spot. Each account is linked to an email address. 

 

I have a small child, can they attend with me?

We think families are great, and time together is important.  Yet, this event is only for those who are 18 and older and who have graduated high school. We want everyone to have the best experience possible at this event, so please make arrangements to leave your children at home or arrange childcare for outside of the conference.
