Youth Conferences

RYM Youth Conferences

RYM deeply cares about students and we yearn for them to know the unrelenting love of Jesus for them and the power of His gospel - a gospel and a love that will carry them through all of life, even until Jesus comes and makes all things new. That’s our heartbeat at RYM! RYM is serving local churches through its summer conferences by providing a space where groups can come and have fun together, be challenged and encouraged by the word of God and in worship and grow together both with one another and with students from all over the country. 


RYM is a great place to come with your youth group, regardless of size, because you immediately get to see a picture of the broader church and experience that together. Your students get to know new people and see that there are people in other places that believe the same thing they do and have they same questions and struggles that they have. 

 

It’s also a great place to bring someone that’s an unbeliever because we want to respect the unbeliever and speak to them where they are, to bring the power of the gospel to bear on both the believer and the unbeliever’s lives. Students at RYM are exposed to God’s word in devotionals, small groups, elective classes and large group preaching and they have their youth leader with them to help apply the word of God to their hearts.
