Given the current situation with COVID-19, We believe it is entirely appropriate to exercise proper precautions concerning Youth Convention. I am personally concerned for the health of all within our churches, not just those teenagers and leaders who plan to attend youth convention, but also for the older adults who will worship alongside them each weekend.

Given these concerns, and in thoughtful consideration of the guidance and recommendations of the state of Pennsylvania, youth convention 2020 will be postponed until further notice. Please give us some time to work out the details and rescheduling of Youth Convention.


We will immediately be contacting the Convention hotels to let them know about this change, but ask that you wait until Monday, March 16 to request cancellations and refunds.


If you have already ordered Convention tickets, you have the option of keeping that credit towards the rescheduled Youth Convention, keeping the credit for Youth Camp, donating the cost of your ticket to the Big Give, or receiving a full refund. Our team will be in contact with each group leader to see how each group would like to proceed. Again, please be patient as we move through this uncharted territory.


Many of you have questions about the Fine Arts Festival. We are working on creative alternatives that will allow the Festival to proceed. We will have more information one way or the other by Wednesday of next week.

Have any questions that we didn’t answer?
