About YouthCon

FOUR days jam-packed full of worship, biblical teaching, personal spiritual challenge, youth-group togetherness and community in the breathtaking high desert setting of Glorieta, New Mexico.

YouthCon is a once-every-four-years event for Sr. High Students of the U.S. Mennonite Brethren churches. It’s four days of connecting, worshipping, learning and experiencing. It’s fun, challenging, relaxing, exhilarating, exhausting and exciting. It is the largest gathering of USMB students in the country and it’s been happening since 1975. YouthCon has, historically, been a life transforming event, during each past YouthCon, students have taken opportunities to begin relationships with Jesus, go deeper in Christian faith and make commitments to ministry and service.

Registration for this once in a lifetime, 4 day adventure is $395* per person. This cost includes everything except transportation to and from Glorieta. Registration opens in the fall of 2018!

Grab your friends, grab your youth group, register for YouthCon!! We are so excited to share some new features at YouthCon 2019 that were not available for pervious conventions. First, all meals are included! This was one of the reasons why we moved to a retreat style setting to keep the cost low and provide natural connecting opportunities. Second, we added an extra day! This allows the students more time to breakaway from distractions, more time for to go deeper, and it replaces the “fun day” that so many churches came early in years past to experience. However we do not have any programing on Sunday (last day) so you can use that as a travel day without disrupting your work week too much. You can find out more details on our schedule by clicking here. Brag to your friends, talk to your youth group, and register for YouthCon!
