National Christian Youth Summit

We are looking for up to 100 youth aged 15-30 from across Canada to attend this year’s Summit taking place  May 1-3, 2019 in Ottawa, Ontario. The National Christian Youth Summit (formerly known as the National Student Forum) is an opportunity for youth and young adults to meet and converse with those who serve on and around Parliament Hill. Youth will participate in round-table and panel discussions designed to help them discover what it means to bring their faith into our nation be that in schools, churches, politics or the public sphere. The Summit is also an opportunity for young people to meet like-minded  youth that are passionate about living out their calling and relationship in Jesus Christ.

This year’s theme is  Such A Time As This: Know, Believe and Imagine. Find out more by clicking What is the National Christian Youth Summit.

The cost to attend is $170. This includes admission to both the Leadership Dinner on May 1, 2019 as well as the National Prayer Breakfast on May 2, 2019. The fee does not include accommodation. For more information, please email

Our desire is to see participants come from across Canada to experience the National Christian Youth Summit. We recognize that some may have some financial difficulty in travelling to Ottawa. With that in mind God has blessed us to make available some travel subsidies for those who are in need. Below is the Application and Selection Process for those coming from outside of the National Capital Region. By faith, we are trusting only those who are truly in need will apply.
