What is Nazarene Youth Conference 2011—A World Unbroken?

NYC (Nazarene Youth Conference) is an exciting and life-changing event for high school students and it only happens once every four years!  The experience is jam packed with dynamic speakers, worship with thousands of other high school students and sponsors from the USA and Canada, informative breakout sessions with leaders in the church, service projects in the community, high energy concerts from some leading artists in Christian music, and so much more.

At this conference we will explore how to experience the transformational power of God, understand the brokenness in the world, discover effective ways to respond to this brokenness, and engage in the work of God to bring hope and healing.  Come join us as we envision A World Unbroken!

When and where is NYC?

The event will take place in Louisville, Kentucky at the International Convention Center (KICC) and Downtown Arena.  The actual conference dates are July 5-10, 2011.  However, the district you travel with may have additional activities planned for your specific group before or after the conference.

Adult Event Volunteers:

Just in case the idea of a free one-of-a-kind t-shirt doesn’t light a fire inside of you, how about a chance to be a part of THE team that makes happen the 2nd largest event sponsored by the Church of the Nazarene?  You will not only have the opportunity to use your gifts and interests to make NYC a reality; you will also be investing in the lives of thousands of teenagers as they explore what it takes to create A World Unbroken.

How do I get there and where will I stay?

Your district leadership will decide how your district will travel to Louisville (planes, trains, busses, all of the above, etc.) and where you will stay.  You will be staying in a hotel located close to the convention center.  Your district will be in communication with you on plans and costs.
