360 Conference Emerging Kingdom Leaders
Want to grow in leadership and have a blast at the same time?
The annual 360 Conference is designed for high school students to engage with each other as they learn about leadership and their relationships with God. Workshop content and networking opportunities make this a great event for youth leaders as well as students.
About the Conference
At the 360 Conference, students will be challenged to think deeply about what Scripture says about leadership and how it applies to their lives. Our hope is that students will leave the event with a better understanding of who God is, what their individual leadership skills are, and how God will use them as leaders wherever they are in life. There is also a track for youth leaders in attendance.
“Our students were blown away by the quality of speakers & ideas at the 360 Conference! Spending time with leaders who are making real change in the world challenged & inspired our student-leaders, which has proven to be a blessing to our entire student ministry.”
Adam Mearse, Naperville Church of Christ, Naperville, IL
You want to live a life that matters. You want to make a difference.
But, what does that look like in a world that defines success by the number of followers on your social media platforms or whether or not you have your own YouTube channel?
We were made for more than merely making a name for ourselves. We were made for more than making a difference in the world. You were made to make history. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ then you’ve not only been saved from something but also for something. You have a critical role to play in the movement Jesus started.
Through an exploration of John 13, you will discover how to Continue the Living Legacy by living like Jesus, loving like Jesus and leaving what Jesus left behind.

“I love bringing students to the 360 conference for many reasons. I know that my students are going to have a great time, get exposed to a great Christian college campus, and also be challenged about what it means to follow Christ. I also really appreciate that the conference has events planned just for leaders. On top of that, Katherine and her crew make the registration process very easy. They put so much thought and work into the weekend that it doesn’t take much of either from me to enjoy the conference with my students. I am planning on making this conference an annual event for my students and I want to get other teachers involved from my school so we can bring more students next year!”
