Youth Convention

BannerMYCYouth Pastors, The “Minnesota Youth Convention” will return to the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota, on October 17th – 18th, 2013. Ryan Williams and “River Valley Live” will return to lead worship. The Thursday and Friday evening sessions will feature the ministry of Sean Smith. Sean is an incredible communicator with a prophetic edge and an amazing challenge for this generation. On Friday afternoon, Pastor Rob Ketterling, lead pastor at River Valley Church, will be speaking for the missions session and helping us launch the “321 Challenge”.

On Thursday night, comedian John Crist will perform a brief introductory monologue during the opening session. Later that night, MC Terrence Talley will bring John Crist back for a full show. We will again offer a “pizza & pop” package between the two Thursday night sessions that can be pre-purchased for a great price ONLY when you pre-register.

We have a number of activities available again this year including the dodge-ball and flag football tournaments.  Groups will be able to choose between bowling, the athletic club, and movies on Friday night.

A pre-registration packet is available for download below. It will have everything you need to register your group, find information on activities, a schedule, and hotel rates. You can also download promo videos and graphics to help promote MYC in your church.  Contact us at 612-455-2280 or if there’s anything we can help you with.
