Chicagoland interchurch youth conference

August 8, 2007

Photography Kenny Kim is at Taylor University covering the J-Gen conference this week. According to Kenny, this event was started out by youth workers in the Chicagoland area and has grown to be an all-wide midwest youth conference.

See the photo collections. From the photos, it looks like over a thousand students are being invigorated by the speakers, seminars, praise & worship, and small group times.

The J-Gen prayer support letter provides a glimpse of its history and vision:

Joshua Generation began in 1999 when a group of youth pastors in the Chicagoland area came together with a common passion for this generation. These earnest prayers led to the first Chicago-wide youth retreat that sparked the beginning of God’s work through J-Gen. As the realization became clearer that students were the key to reaching this generation for Christ, the need for empowered youth workers became even more evident. The direction of J-Gen’s vision has expanded to equip youth workers with tools to reach their own youth for the name of Jesus. By God’s grace, J-Gen now hosts various events throughout the year for students and their youth workers!

Do you know of other interchurch youth conferences elsewhere? What have you found effective at ministering to youth collectively in your area?
