NLC? Ultimately our purpose is to gather the YFC family to grow as Christ-centered leaders, elevate spiritual renewal, celebrate what God is doing, and unify around our shared vision. 

Why the rebrand? The tradition of Mid-Winter is something Youth for Christ holds closely to and is often known as “The YFC Family Gathering”. Unfortunately transitions from annually to bi-annually and our target audience have shifted over the years which led to confusion of ‘who is invited’ and led to inconsistencies. The primary purposes of the National Leadership Conference will be spiritual renewal, unifying vision, and celebrating progress toward the preeminent goal, with a combination of culture from the past but lifting the significance of soul care. Changing the name to National Leadership Conference helps continue the flow between Regional and Ministry leader Conferences (RLC & MLC) and having one unified platform to deliver a variety of events and conferences.  

Why the fall? Similar to the rebranding, switching the time of year in which the event is held, adds a natural flow to our event and conference season. After two wonderful years of Regional Leadership Conferences across the country, we can now come together unified at one large scale national conference. This also helps financially for all parties involved and the year off of RLC allows for the execution of NLC instead of adding another event completely.
