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.

Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
LIFE TEEN is a Eucharist-centered youth ministry movement within the Catholic Church. Our mission is simple: lead teens closer to Christ. The movement of Life Teen has been reaching teens, restoring parishes, and reclaiming culture for 35 years.
During this pandemic, Life Teen is pivoting in enormous ways to provide vital resources for youth ministers to reach their teens. Having already successfully ministered to 200,000 teenagers directly through our virtual offerings, we believe this is a crucial time for teenagers and adults to renew their hearts for Christ.
While Life Teen always remains mission focused, we need your help to bridge the financial gap. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted our ministry this year causing a 60% loss in revenue and the opportunity to minister to over 23,000 teenagers who registered for our camps and conferences. We have been overwhelmed with gratitude by all who have supported us already and we would be honored by our commitment to become a “Light Bearer.” Please prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift in support of our teens, so that together we can reach teenagers for Christ.
In many ways, teens today are more receptive to the Gospel than ever. They crave authenticity and truth in a world of marketing and identity crafting – but they don’t know where to find it. Life Teen works to reach teens where they are – at school, on sports fields, or on Instagram. We engage them through diverse events targeted to resonate with their lives. We strive to ensure that each young person is seen and heard for who they are, and we walk alongside them as they experience life, day in and day out. And as we walk with them, we walk them to the table of the Altar. We walk them into the arms of Jesus.
Parishes across our nation are dwindling, and pews are left empty. Communities are praying for vocations each week, praying for attendance, but steadily losing hope that anything will change. Life Teen knows that there is hope for change – for a return to vitality. Youth ministry is the hope of struggling parishes. Life Teen, with your help, will reach and restore every parish no matter the size, location, or budget by equipping them with all they need for effective youth ministry. As we come alongside parishes, we provide training, materials, and support. Through this, we see more holy marriages, more vocations, and more thriving, active parishes across the US and around the world.
The content of Jesus’ teaching hasn’t changed for 2,000 years, but our language and cultural context has. Life Teen is dedicated to communicating the timeless truth of the Gospel in a culturally relevant way, helping teens engage with Scripture and the faith in a way they can understand and apply to their lives. We engage with, navigate, and when necessary, confront culture where the conversations are taking place: online, through media, and in-person. And as we do so, rather than allowing our youth to be buffeted about by the winds of a fickle culture, we equip and empower them to stand firm. Now, when they take their place in their parishes, schools, and on the sports field, they are ready to reclaim culture.
We need your help to fuel this mission so we can reach every teen. We humbly invite you to partner with us as we raise up a generation of young people to live for Jesus and His Church. We can’t do it without you. Join us.
