YouthCon is a once-every-four years event for high school students from the U.S. Mennonite Brethren churches around the country. It's four days of connecting, worshiping, learning and experiencing. It's fun, challenging, relaxing, and exciting. Since 1975 it has been one of the largest regular gatherings of USMB people. This one-time high school experience provides space for students to connect with God and each other. The goal of the conference is is to transform our youth and empower them to grow in the likeness of Christ to be a light in the dark places where we live, work and play.
