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.
The Life Teen Leadership Conference is a dynamic, prayerful, and impactful week of talks and activities that help teens become the leaders and disciples that God is calling them to be. We believe in empowering this new generation with practical leadership skills, but not without first teaching them how to be a disciple. Teens will have time to adore the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration, participate in powerful worship, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, gain practical leadership skills, and meet other teens from across the country who are committed to discipleship and evangelization.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

Those who struggle with gender confusion carry a particularly challenging cross that the world would rather ignore.

In order for society to be able to define us, it had to create us. Newsflash: society did not create us.

As long as it feels good and there’s consent, does it need any boundaries? Labels? Conventional standards? Please, that is so backwards. This is 2017, right?
But then, when people say and do things that are so obviously wrong and offensive, we’re shocked and offended.

Our goodness rests in our identity as daughters of God. We are good because we are desired by God. We are good because we are loved by God. And He loves us, not because of anything we will ever do, but because we have been created by Him and He desires us.
“I won’t get married to a woman unless I’ve had sex with her first,” a friend boldly said, as we caught up over coffee…
If we’re striving to live the virtue of chastity, and be pure in all of our relationships, there’s something to be said for common sense here.
