D3 Youth Conference

Week 1: June 18-21          Week 2: June 25-28

We are created as relational beings. First and foremost, God created us for relationship with him, but sin has broken that relationship. Christ’s blood makes a way for relationship with God again. As Christians, all of our relationships—friends, parents, opposite sex—flow from our relationship with God.

Are you ready for D3?


“D3 has definitely equipped me to know what the truth is, so that I can share it with others.”

Track Sessions

Leadership Track

If you are passionate about being the next generation of gospel-driven, transformational leaders then the Leadership track is for you. If you believe that the most adventurous life possible is to live obsessed with Jesus Christ and his mission then the Leadership track is for you.

Missions Track

We challenge you to become cross-cultural and move beyond your backyard, your street, your neighborhood, even beyond your city in the name of Christ. In the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) Jesus commanded his believers to share the Gospel cross-culturally and we are here to arm you with the tools to become a transformational, gospel-driven, biblically-minded, and theologically-sound missions student.

Worldview Track

Did you know that the Gospel applies to every aspect of your life? In a Genesis 3, fallen, sinful world making sense of the world around you can be challenging. Bryan Baise Worldview track will teach students to develop and implement a biblical worldview.

Youth Leader Track

Youth leaders are on the front lines of gospel ministry. You are faced with a myriad of situations that require gospel-fueled grace, scripture-saturated instruction, spirit-empowered holiness, and cross-bearing love. None of these things come without a deep understanding of God’s Word inflamed by a vibrant devotional life.

This track will help you to find ways to bolster your faith and impact the lives of your students. There is no doubt that well-trained youth leaders advance the kingdom of Christ and we want an opportunity to unfold God’s Word for you. So join us for this debut track session if you want to hear passionate and theologically-sound teaching.

“Out of all the youth camps I have attended or taken students to, D3 is without a doubt the best!”
