About the Conference

The majority of the conference takes place in a large-group setting.  To deepen and enrich the experience, youth are placed in small groups of 7-8 people of the same gender with one adult leader.

Omaha youth participating with their parish youth ministry group will meet in small groups together.  If youth are not participating with a youth ministry group, they will be placed in a small group with youth from other parishes. Rural youth will be placed in small groups with youth from area towns.

Formation Sessions & Hubs

Formation Sessions: All participants are required to attend three formation sessions in preparation for the conference. These sessions will introduce the conference theme and provide time for youth to build relationships with their adult leaders and other small group members.

Hubs: Youth must register online according to one of three “hub” locations (see below). Formation sessions will be held at these hubs, and transportation to the conference will depart from and return to these locations.

For general event information and questions about online registration, please contact Jen Moser or call 402.557.5610.

For information on formation sessions and transportation to the conference, please contact your local “hub” coordinator.
