We have all been created to know and live in the love of Christ. It gives our lives meaning and joy. However, life’s endless distractions, busyness, and concerns often make it difficult for us to find the time and space to encounter and share that love.
But when we do, it changes everything.
In the love of Christ and by following him as disciples, we find peace, hope, and renewed purpose. Hearts, lives, and families are changed. Are you ready for change? Are you ready for something new?
Franciscan University’s Steubenville Encounter Conference will transform your heart, strengthen and renew your faith, and launch you on a journey of discipleship that will change the course of your life.
For years, adults who have journeyed with teens at Steubenville Youth Conferences have been saying to us, “We love the praise, preaching, and energy. Why don’t you do a youth conference for adults?” Well, that’s what we’ve done!
Steubenville Encounter is also the first family-friendly conference to be offered on our campus. The whole family is invited to be a part of this amazing weekend.
There will be a special time for younger children to experience prayer, catechesis, and fun with their peers, while older teens will join their parents for a message that will draw them closer to Christ and one another.
Come and be part of Steubenville Encounter. You, your family, and your friends will leave with the new power and direction you need to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
There will be special programming offered for children ages 3-13 running parallel to the adult programming. Children will have the opportunity to engage with their peers and experience a time of prayer, catechesis, and fun and games!
Children will be grouped according to the following ages:
- 3-6 years old
- 7-9 years old
- 10-11 years old
- 12-13 years old
More information about the schedule and content will be posted when available.
