2021 Conference Summary
We want to help the youth have their vision restored: to see God, themselves, others and the world more clearly, as God intended. We want to place a particular focus on beholding and praising the glory of God, especially in the midst of the busyness, confusion, and anxiety of everyday life. Our hope is that God’s glory would be the lens through which the youth experience their lives and the world. When we lift our eyes to God’s glory, we are restored.

Andrew Laubacher, aka ALOB, was raised in Ventura, California, where he attended Mass, played many sports, hung at the beach and was always into music. He attended Catholic school before switching to a public school because he was “tired of the Catholic rules.” In high school, he partied hard. After a serious wake-up call, he decided to attend a Steubenville Youth Conference where he found God. That changed his life. ALOB received degrees in theology and philosophy from Franciscan University and is now at St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo, California, for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, studying for the priesthood.
