National Christian Youth Summit

We are looking for up to 100 young people from across Canada to attend this year’s National Christian Youth Summit taking place on 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 other like-minded youth across the nation that are passionate about living out their calling and relationship in Jesus Christ.

Youth also attend the Leadership Dinner on May 1, 2019 attended by Canadian leaders and Members of Parliament as well as the National Prayer Breakfast on May 2, 2019.

Registration and additional information will become available in a few months. In the meantime, please contact for questions pertaining to the youth summit.
