The Youth Leader Experience Conference 2016:

The only Conference by Youth Leaders and for Youth Leaders

SPEAKERS

Each year at the Youth Leader Experience we bring in some of the most well known communicators in the church along with Experts who have walked miles in our shoes as Youth Leaders

This balance of gifted communicators and seasoned leaders allow for a unique combination of large format teaching and real world application.

BREAKOUTS

At the Youth Leader Experience we designed our Breakout Sessions to make sense.

Rather than host 30 breakout sessions that leave Youth Leaders with little information and little practicality of application, we have asked our team of Youth Leaders what they want in a breakout - and that is what we have brought to the Youth Leader Experience.

NETWORKING

The Youth Leader Experience was formed out of the heart of Youth Leaders

At the Youth Leader Experience you will find the vision, which was formed from the heart of Youth Leaders, runs though out our times together not only in session but the entire conference. We believe a key component to making the Youth Leader Experience impactful is the relationships that are formed in our networking times.
Todd Wagner

Todd Wagner

Senior Pastor, Watermark

If you had told me I would be serving and leading as a Pastor in the church 25 years ago I would have taken a swing at you. I saw the church as a place of compromised mediocrity; an emaciated organization that lacked vision, heart and courageous leadership. Today, I love nothing more than taking a swing at being what Christ always wanted His people to be. I am grateful for the passionate, gifted, others-centered group of Christ followers that daily live to serve and lead with me. Come join us as we take our turn in God's great adventure of reaching out, serving and loving a confused and increasingly chaotic world.
Hillsong United

Hillsong United

Worship

Hillsong United, now known as United, was born out of a fervent desire for the youth contingency to engage in worship with more of a rock ’n’ roll musical sensibility. The band followed in the footsteps of worship leader Darlene Zschech, who led a separate band “Hillsong” that was based out of the same church.
Brian Houston

Brian Houston

Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church

As a leader, Pastor Brian Houston is highly regarded for his boldness, innovation and vision. As a church pastor, he is well respected for his passion for the cause of Christ and the local church, and for preaching messages that change mindsets and ministries. But at HOME – Hillsong Church – Pastor Brian is most loved for being the ‘dad of the house’ – a pastor who loves God and people, and a speaker of life who declares, ‘The best is yet to come’.
Jesus Culture

Jesus Culture

Worship

The Jesus Culture band was formed organically through the momentum of a movement whose focus is to equip a generation to be influencers of society. It’s hard to separate the team from the movement, as they really are joined together with one focus: to bring people into an encounter with God’s love through worship and to disciple them to transform society. The Jesus Culture band is fronted by Kim Walker-Smith and Chris Quilala with Ian McIntosh playing keys, Jeffrey Kunde as the lead guitarist, Brandon Aaronson as the bassist, Josh Fisher as the drummer, and Skyler Smith as acoustic guitarist. Each member of the team knows the weight of the call God on their lives and they live devoted to a lifestyle of worship, hoping that their music can help lead all those who hear it into an experience of His presence that won’t leave them the same. Over the past 7 years, the team has released seven albums with the latest one being Jesus Culture with Martin Smith; Live from New York, in November of 2012. Each album captures the heart of this generation burning for God and seeking an encounter with His presence

As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997.

Meredith Andrews

Meredith Andrews

Worship

Meredith Andrews has always had a gift for writing honest, compelling songs that resonate powerfully with an audience. Over the course of her first two Word albums, people have come to appreciate the Dove Award-winning artist’s love for God and her heart for people. She’s formed a strong bond with her audience, and yet as open and vulnerable as Andrews has been before, the true heart of this gifted artist is best revealed on her new project Worth it All.
Vertical Church Band

Vertical Church Band

Worship

The idea that worshiping Jesus Christ is best done not when we just sing about Him or what He has done or what He will do in the future. The highest and best worship is modeled by what the angels do: sing to God about God. Vertical. Vertical Church Band is a collection of people who play every week in places all over Chicagoland as part of Harvest Bible Chapel, a place that believes singing isn’t a warm-up for the sermon; singing is a warm-up for heaven. So the faces may change. The style may evolve. But the aim will stay the same. Vertical.
Steven Curtis Chapman

Steven Curtis Chapman

Worship

“I know this is not anything like you thought the story of your life was gonna be...but there's so much of the story that's still yet to unfold.” Few people know the pain and the promise in that statement better than Steven Curtis Chapman. The past few years have been an incredible journey that Chapman wouldn’t have chosen, yet has taught him so very much. Those lessons permeate every song on Chapman’s new album The Glorious Unfolding.
