The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
We are offered a future full of hope. That future, however, will not simply arrive at our doorstep. We must co-labor with Christ as he speaks hope into this world.

How they are shaped today will be how they shape tomorrow.

By now, my dear freshman friend, you’re probably in a pretty good groove when it comes to high school. Your locker is set up, you know the route between your classes, and you actually respond to your Spanish name now, right? So it seems like a good time to stop and evaluate: how are things going so far?
