National Leadership Conference

September 9-12, 2021 | Indianapolis, IN


What is the purpose of 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 MidWinter has often been known as “The YFC Family Gathering.” Unfortunately, transitions to the frequency of this gathering and our target audience have shifted over the years, which led to confusion on who is invited and also led to inconsistencies. The primary purposes of the National Leadership Conference will be spiritual renewal, unifying vision, and celebrating progress toward the preeminent goal. It will also include a combination of culture from the past but lift 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 give us 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 as the year off of RLC allows for the execution of the NLC, instead of adding another event completely.
