SDYC 2020 is planned for November 20-22 at Wheat State Retreat Center — Check them out here: https://www.wheatstateretreat.org/

We have chosen to host SDYC at a retreat center instead of a host church in order to avoid a host home environment during this season. We will continue to be monitoring the health situation around us.

Covid-19. We want to keep everyone as safe as possible. Temperatures will be taken daily. Masks and social distancing are encouraged. Please do not come to SDYC if you are not feeling well. Anyone that gets sick or develops symptoms will be quarantined and sent home. If social distancing and consistent mask wearing is critically important to your family, it may not be a good year to attend SDYC.

SDYC stands for our Southern District Youth Conference which is our denomination’s annual youth conference where often 500+ people come together.  At this weekend conference, senior high students will recharge their batteries by experiencing encouraging worship and challenging lesson. They will have a chance to reconnect with fellow believers, and they will have the opportunity to recommit to living out their Christian faith in an ever-changing world.

Speaker: Jesse Allen. Jesse currently resides with his wife Tara and daughter Kinsley in Hillsboro, KS. In the past years Jesse and Tara have had the opportunity to serve with Disciple Nations and Multiply both locally and globally. After living in Thailand for a year working with long term church planters Jesse moved to Hillsboro where he currently works as a school teacher. Jesse’s summers have consisted of serving the global church in Ukraine and locally in rural communities. Jesse helps lead a school of ministry in the summer that equips this generation to step fully into their God-given identity sent to walk out their destiny in the Kingdom of God. Jesse’s greatest passion is to equip the Church to partner with Christ to see God’s Kingdom come to earth as it is in heaven.
Band: Presence Worship
ThemeHOME. Every soul on the planet has a deep longing for peace and satisfaction. Since the beginning of time, God has invited humanity to step into a pure, personal, and powerful relationship with Him to satisfy the deepest desire of our heart: to know and worship our Creator. This year’s theme will examine the idea of being home through the lens of God’s presence. We will explore how true intimacy with Jesus and abiding in Him impacts every aspect of our lives and provides the “at home” experience that every person longs for.
