Wednesday, October 31 | 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Central Time

Our Promo Packets have been sent out!  (let us know if you need more posters).  We are really excited to get all that information in your hands.   However, we realized two things.

First, there was simply not enough space to put everything we wanted to in there so there is so much more to share!

Second, the promo packet might have lead to some important questions that you might have.  So we decided to do a one-hour Facebook Live YouthCon update on Wednesday, October 31st at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. central time.

This just so happens to be the same day that registration OPENS for YouthCon!  So we are having a launch party to celebrate that and update you on all things USMB Youth.  We will also be giving away some pretty big prizes during the event but you must be in attendance to win!  YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS!!!!!!

This event is geared for youth workers but open to all!  Just like USMB Youth’s Facebook page and be ready for the LIVE event.

The exact times:

10:00 a.m. (Pacific)

11:00 a.m. (Mountain)

12:00 p.m. (Central)

1:00 p.m. (Eastern)
