Most people would say that their relationship with God is not where they would like it to be, but many also feel unsure of how to change it. The Steubenville Conferences offer five unique conference experiences to help people escape the spiritual desert and empower them to live every day as joyful disciples of Jesus Christ.

We know how hard it is to maintain a close relationship with God amidst all of life’s daily challenges and pressures. Maybe you feel yourself collapsing under the weight of great tragedy. Maybe you are experiencing burnout in your ministry. Maybe you just can’t find the time. You know you want something more, but you don’t know how to get there.

For over 40 years, the Steubenville Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, have been helping people develop the relationship with God that they desire. Our five distinct conferences address the many different issues people face in their spiritual lives.  We want to help you figure out which conference best fits your own needs, so that you can live the abundant life that God wants for you.
