Welcome to the 2023 Grand Canyon State Youth Conference page.
Due to complications with the campground normally used to host the Grand Canyon State Baptist Camp, Cornerstone Baptist Church will be hosting a 2-day Youth Conference at our church instead. We are thrilled to have Pastor Michael Jones from Oakwood Baptist Church in Anderson, SC as our conference speaker! The program officially starts Thursday morning, but Pastor Jones will be preaching at Cornerstone Baptist Church on Wednesday night, 6/21 as well.  If you want to extend your time with your teen group, please feel free to come to our Wednesday Night service to start off the conference.

Our theme verse is 2 Peter 3:18, "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."

Because things are a little different for our summer activities this year, I want to encourage you to think outside the box on ways to invest in your teens.  For example, after the Wednesday evening service, you could begin with a late-night activity for your group. After the conference concludes on Friday, you could plan an additional activity that afternoon or on Saturday for just your group.  Either way, we encourage you to capitalize on this time with your teens as much as possible during the week. Activities don't need to be expensive or burdensome, but it is always a blessing when teens can fellowship in a Christian environment.
It has been my desire to see that the teens in our state grow in the Lord through their personal commitment to reflect and glorify our Savior.  One of the great blessings in Teen Ministry is the opportunity to pull them away from the daily tug of the world and the flesh and spend some extended time under the preaching of God's Word.  We pray this Youth Conference will help accomplish this in the lives of our youth.

Please register now with the form below, or by calling me.  Pricing will be determined once we have a better idea of how many will be attending.

If you have any questions please give me a text or call.
