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.
Life Teen’s Catholic Youth Ministry Convention has become America’s premier event for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. Why? Maybe it’s because we are different. We believe in practical, comprehensive youth ministry training. But we don’t think that’s enough. That’s why we incorporate elements of a spiritual retreat into the training convention. Because youth ministry isn’t about what you know, it’s Who you know.
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.

Guidelines in conversations about racism are necessary for an honest, fruitful discussion, and compassionate, proactive responses are required from small group leaders. Our good friend Chika is here to talk you through guidelines and possible scenarios when talking through the At the Table series.
It is important to talk about racism with teens, so that they can become part of the solution, and not part of the problem. Our Coordinator of Hispanic Ministry, Stephanie Espinoza, shares her experience and dives deeper into talking about racism.
Conversations that engage discomfort take courage, and that is what this At the Table series calls for. Joel Stepanek, our Director of Resource Development, is here to prep you and your team to effectively and positively implement this resource into your youth program.
