2020 Conference Theme

“Restore us, O God of hosts; let thy face shine, that we may be saved.”
(Psalm 80:3)

2020 Theme Summary

Theme 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, visit steubenvilleconferences.com.

Steubenville Florida
Testimonials

See what people are saying about the Steubenville Florida experience!

Group Leader Testimonial

"They bonded as a group and have taken on the responsibility of welcoming new teens and trying to draw in teens that tend to remain in the background. They have stepped up and come up with ideas to incorporate in our youth ministry."


Group Leader Testimonial

"They were just shining love and so focused on the other kids. Both were able to lead small group discussions and spent some one on one time with some of our group members."


Teen Testimonial

"Before the LEAD week it was always weird trying to tell someone about the faith and how God works. But through the experience with giving my testimony I realized one of the most powerful things I can do is merely tell people of how He's worked in my own life!"


Teen Testimonial

"I wasn't unwilling to be a witness, it was that there was always this fear of rejection that would hold me back. But one of the most beautiful things about LEAD is that it dispels the fear and empowers you to be that witness to others."
