Dear Friends in Christ,


Everyone who attends a Steubenville Conference is part of the Franciscan University of Steubenville family. As such, your wellbeing is of utmost importance to us. So, first and foremost, please know of our prayers for you, your family and friends as you endeavor to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times.


Many are asking if the 2020 Steubenville Conference season is going to take place. While the full effect of COVID-19 is unknown, it is our hope that everything will be stabilized by this coming summer so that it will be safe to gather, pray, and enjoy one another’s company. As such, we would encourage you to register for the conference that you wish to attend this summer.


Our cancellation policy for Main Campus, Steubenville San Diego, and the 2:42 young adult conference is as such:

  • If any of our Main Campus conferences (Adult or Youth), Steubenville San Diego, or 2:42 are cancelled, as mandated by the government or decided upon by Franciscan University, any registered participant can do one of two things:
    • Get a full refund
    • Put 2020 registration fee toward a 2021 conference
  • If a participant decides not to come because of COVID-19 when a conference has not been cancelled:
    • Get a full refund
    • Put 2020 registration fee toward a 2021 conference


For now, please reserve your spot for one of our amazing conferences and join us in prayer. Franciscan University and its Steubenville Conference Office are committed to the health and safety of its conference participants. As such, consistent with federal, state, and local guidelines, the University will have all recommended safety practices in place for this summer’s conferences. You will receive any important updates as they become available.


Please pray for our country. Pray for the most vulnerable among us. Pray for God’s will to be done and for an outpouring of healing grace.


If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at (740) 283-6315 or email us at [email protected].


Please note: the policy above is for our Main Campus conferences, Steubenville San Diego, and the 2:42 young adult conference.

We look forward, by the grace of God, to serving you this summer. Be assured of our prayers for you, your loved ones, and your walk with the Lord as we journey together during this challenging time. May God bless you abundantly.
