SERVING AT STEUBENVILLE SoCal?
The Steubenville SoCal Youth Conferences are just around the corner, July 7- 9, 2017 (Steubenville OC) and July 28-30, 2017 (Steubenville San Diego), and your generous help as a volunteer is cherished. This summer we anticipate hosting 7,000 teens, young adults, and youth leaders between the University of California, Irvine and the University of San Diego! Imagine thousands of young people, our teens, praying, worshiping, celebrating their faith in their own authentic and energetic way, learning how to live as a Catholic Christian in a secular world, supporting one another in community on their faith journey, and celebrating the Holy Mass! The conferences are full of joyful and engaging music, amazing speakers, the sacraments, and the energy and fellowship of teens. All of this is made possible by hundreds of adults joining together in love to support and serve these young people.
There are many ways to help: ushering, hospitality, registration, prayer ministers, first-aid assistance, security, transportation, set-up and removal of the stage design, Gift Shop assistants and more. This year, we are using an on-line system to better serve our volunteers. Volunteers need to attend ONLY ONE of the scheduled meetings.

This year’s theme is “Elevate” based on Revelation 21:5, “Behold, I make all things new.” From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world – to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt. He wants to break the things that hold you down and give you freedom from sin. He is calling you to follow Him and enter into a transforming experience with His love, grace, and mercy! He can make you new! – at the 2017 Steubenville SoCal Youth Conferences, we will all have an opportunity to give our souls to Christ, who so desperately thirsts for them. As Christ reigns in our hearts, let’s join together to help our teens see that real joy is found in our Lord!
