The Clarks Summit University COVID-19 Response Team has been monitoring health recommendations and government regulations, and we must officially cancel Teen Leadership Conference 2020 and the corresponding National Youth Ministries Conference.
Every year, hundreds of high school students look forward to an exciting time of learning, connecting with friends and reaching out to make new friends from across the country. Youth leaders enjoy this time of ministry development and personal refreshment as they learn together with people who have a heart for teens.
However, cancelling this year’s event (the first time in TLC’s 50+ year history!) is something we need to do to keep the health and the interests of attendees, employees and the greater community in mind. It’s a practical way to submit to the authority God has put in place and a real way to demonstrate care for others.
Youth leaders and high school students are encouraged to watch past conference sessions on YouTube.
During the week that TLC was scheduled, July 13–18, 2020, messages, highlighted videos and giveaways for high school students will be on TLC’s social media.
Those who have already registered can request a refund by emailing tlc@ClarksSummitU.edu. Refunds will be processed 30 days from the cancellation request.
Our God is constant, unchanging and strong. No matter what circumstances look like, He remains faithful in His love and concern for every detail. These unexpected challenges can be used as amazing opportunities to lead and serve Him in unexpected ways.
Save the date for Teen Leadership Conference next summer: July 12–17, 2021!
Please email tlc@ClarksSummitU.edu with questions and concerns.
