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.

Life Teen’s mission is universal: lead teens closer to Christ. The Great Commission’s call is distinct: “Go and make disciples of all nations.”
Together, these two charges have led us to the beautiful nation of Haiti. Will you join us?
Donate To Haiti Mission Base
On January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck just 16 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. The earthquake leveled the beautiful country, and left more than 1.5 million people homeless, 316,000 dead and devastation across the land.
Life Teen sent multiple mission trips to the country to aid in the rebuilding efforts, and one fact quickly became clear: the people of Haiti, especially the teens, were hungry for Jesus Christ.
No Catholic Youth Ministry existed in Haiti, but after an earnest appeal from the Bishop of Haiti, the St. John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization was founded in Madian, Haiti.
Just as St. Paul writes “I have become all things to all, to save at least some” in 1 Corinthians 9:22, so too does the Life Teen base and missionaries in Haiti impact and interact with the community.
With multiple families and full-time Life Teen missionaries, both Haitian and American, living on the base, a full Catholic School welcoming students, and mission trip groups regularly visiting the base, the JP2 Center for the New Evangelization is a living, breathing part of the Haitian community.
No two days look the same in Haiti, but the mission always remains constant: lead teens closer to Christ. Sometimes it’s through renting a tanker truck to provide clean water to all in need after a hurricane, weekly Bible studies, hosting Life Teen Haiti Summer Camp, walking with teens to school, or even just providing a quiet place to pray. God has called Life Teen to Haiti and we’ve been blessed by the abundant blessings & glory He has shown in this mission!
In this mission of bringing Jesus to the people of Haiti, we simply cannot do it alone. Whether through prayer, financial support, or mission trip, we humbly implore you to join us in this mission.
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. The need in Haiti is great, both in physical relief and goods, but especially in the spiritual sense. Please pray for the mission of Life Teen in Haiti, and prayerfully consider joining us today.
