2019 Theme Summary

This theme will speak to relationship with God as sons and daughters, with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, with the Church and the world. Through this theme we hope to address two specific trends in youth culture today: the lack of true and authentic relationships, especially as a result of the use of social media, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation. We want the youth to know their true identity as sons and daughters of the Other and the bond we have with one another as the Body of Christ.

The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 25 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Our mission is to build the Church by evangelizing, equipping, and empowering God’s children to become radical and joyful disciples. For more information about the Steubenville Conferences, visit steubenvilleconferences.com.

Steubenville Florida
Testimonials

See what people are saying about the Steubenville Florida experience!

Group Leader Testimonial

"They bonded as a group and have taken on the responsibility of welcoming new teens and trying to draw in teens that tend to remain in the background. They have stepped up and come up with ideas to incorporate in our youth ministry."


Group Leader Testimonial

"They were just shining love and so focused on the other kids. Both were able to lead small group discussions and spent some one on one time with some of our group members."


Teen Testimonial

"Before the LEAD week it was always weird trying to tell someone about the faith and how God works. But through the experience with giving my testimony I realized one of the most powerful things I can do is merely tell people of how He's worked in my own life!"


Teen Testimonial

"I wasn't unwilling to be a witness, it was that there was always this fear of rejection that would hold me back. But one of the most beautiful things about LEAD is that it dispels the fear and empowers you to be that witness to others."
