Nazarene Youth Conference (NYC) is a life changing event held every four years in different locations across the United States and Canada. High School students gather together for worship, teaching, and community outreach united by a common belief in Jesus Christ.
NYC includes service projects and missional work throughout the host city. NYC features speakers, worship artists, and creative ministries from across the country.
The live concerts feature today’s most popular Christian recording artists. Daily teachings inspire, challenge, and unite our students. The
multi-sensory “Experience” is life-transforming and designed for group discipleship and creative learning. And the Rec Hall is a highlight filled with individual and group activities, games, and exhibits.
This conference has proven to be a milestone in the lives of many students in the ongoing formation of their worldview, and it will both challenge and encourage students to have the compassion to be a world-changer and show others the love of Christ.
The theme of NYC ’23 is simple: OVERFLOW! Since the earliest days God has displayed His ongoing movement, power, and presence in and through this life-giving element...water. Our story opens with the spirit of God hovering over the chaotic waters bringing order, provision, and new life. The headwaters of His love began in the garden and flow through all eternity. But we, his creation, chose a different stream, one that serves ourselves and leads to a dry and weary existence.
He parts the waters, calms the seas, and makes streams in the wilderness. Saves us from the depths of ourselves and the waves of this world. Lifts us up out of the murky water to new life in His presence and with his power. Leads us beside quiet waters. Restores our soul.
He fills us--but that is not all. God does not fill bottles to be capped, but vessels to be poured through.
A body of water with inflow, but no outflow becomes stagnant. He fills us to overflowing! His presence and power are poured into us in abundance by his spirit. We are transformed by Jesus and springs of living water flow not just to us or in us, but through us. Like the psalmist we can say, “my cup overflows.”
We become conduits of hope, healing, new life. Rivers of living water overflow through us!
It is our prayer that the mighty current of God’s hope and love flows in you and spills out over the banks of your life to a dry and thirsty land. That wave after wave of His love and grace will break onto the shores of this generation and our world.
