Children's and Teen Programs

This conference includes a Children’s Program and a Teen/Youth Event. The hours of both programs are the same as the conference with a 10 minute window before and after. Children will need to be picked up for lunch.

Teen Event

This summer’s leader for the teen/youth program is DCE Charity Smith from St. Luke’s Lutheran, Manhattan, Kansas. She will be leading the teens with the 2018 Lutheran Youth Fellowship’s Leadership program: SHARE HOPE. This is a 4-part course that enables teens to speak the truth in love with their peers. They will explore the ways that both worldview and communication skills impact their witness. Discussion questions and activities will lead teens to develop positive interaction skills to share Jesus in conversation and on social media.

This is an excellent opportunity for your teens or your teen leadership. Charity is a daughter of the District. She grew up at Bethlehem, Richmond VA, where her father, Rev. Gary Olson serves.  Her mother, Karen taught for many years at Luther Memorial. We are glad to welcome Charity back for this conference. Teen Registration fee is $45 per person

Children’s Program

Once again, our children’s program will be rocking in the very capable hands of youth and adults from Messiah, Charlotte who come as servant leaders to lift up our youngest participants and engage them in activities and conversations of grace.
