What is RLCs?

Regional Leadership Conferences will build movement unity, deepen our sense of belonging in the YFC Family, fortify our common identity and calling to Christ and the YFC Mission. Leaders will grow in skills and knowledge relevant to their specific context, experience spiritual refreshment, and connect to the YFC Family. 

Who is invited to RLCs?

All YFC leaders are invited to attend their Regional Leadership Conference.  RLC’s are primarily designed with Site Directors, Affiliate Directors and Administrative Leaders (paid & volunteer) in mind and should be accompanied by their Executive Leadership staff.  Ministry Directors, Development Directors and Coordinators will also derive significant benefit from the conference.

What has changed since the last RLC?

The conferences are now on weekends so that volunteers, who are also Site Directors or Affiliate Directors, can more easily attend and be a part of the conferences.

There has also been a great deal of intentional work to make sure that the Regional Leadership Conferences, Ministry Leadership Conferences, and the National Leadership Conference, are all working together to equip, inspire, and unify every leader within the Youth For Christ Movement so that we can grow to reach one million lost 11-19-year-olds each year.

The RLC's will continue to be a YFC family gathering where leaders can reconnect, laugh, hang out, grow and develop as leaders.
