The first YES (Youth Enrichment Seminar) Weekend was held in February, 1986 with approximately 280 young people from around the southeast in attendance. Since then, YES Weekend has grown to have attendances of over 1,000. Its success is built upon its motivating speakers, timely lessons, fantastic fellowship, great fun and spiritual growth. YES Weekend is designed for 6th through 12th grade and College students.

The premise behind the seminar is to prepare our young people to make sound decisions in their lives. We feel it is our responsibility to guide and direct our children in the way they should go. This will, as God has stated, help them as they grow old (Proverbs 22:6).

The impact we have on our youth is so great and we must keep them excited about Christianity. YES Weekend is one avenue we can take to keep the achieve this end. It is our hope and prayer to continue to lead our young people in the path of righteousness. We also hope for you to take advantage of YES Weekend to help prepare your young people for the future.
