Youth Quake

Youth Quake

We are currently working on YQ2018 - details will be posted here soon. In the meantime, check out our YQ 2017 highlights and information below.

Looks Like A Festival, Feels Like A Retreat
The best aspects of a youth group retreat are ready for you at YQ17. The sessions throughout the weekend will have one speaker, one worship band, and one focus for teaching (Shine Through). Youth groups will eat together and stay in the same dorms. After each main session, there will be "Youth Group Time" where your youth can talk with their leaders and discuss the main message and what that means for their lives. While these retreat aspects provide so much, YQ is much more than your average youth retreat.  With 1800+ attendees from all over the country, this event explodes with energy. The festivities include: concerts from diverse genres, professional light shows, tons of crazy activities, and most importantly, world-class preaching and teaching. This makes YQ the best of both worlds: Looks like a festival, feels like a retreat. There is nothing else like it. 


Have you ever realized that the tiny light on your phone can change the atmosphere of a dark space? That little light can shine through the darkness to make an unmistakable difference in its surroundings. In Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus says that we have this unmistakable difference about us to when we start following Him as He starts shining through us. This is a difference that will shine through the crap that life throws at us, no matter how complex it may seem. Join us at YQ17 as we wrestle through what it means to let Jesus shine through.
