Alliance Young Adults


We are a deeper life, church-driven, young adults movement. We want every person ages 18–30 to know that:

  • You belong.
  • Jesus is inviting you deeper.
  • You have a significant purpose.

Don’t miss our next event!

If you are a young adult aged 18-30, we want to invite you to a regional gathering to celebrate, discuss, and affirm these truths of belonging, deeper life in Christ, and finding your purpose in God’s kingdom. We long to send you back to your local context encouraged and confident that life with Jesus goes deep, and that you will know as a young adult that you have a unique part to play in His Church! We’ll incorporate a mix of worship, spiritual teaching, group discussions, break-out conversations, firepits, social activities, and prayer!

Our main sessions will include worship, two 15-minute speakers per session, and opportunities for interaction and response.

Friday night we have a fun event planned that everyone will want to stick around for!

5. Who are the speakers going to be at the conference?

The Alliance Young Adults leadership team has made the intentional choice to prioritize the messages that God has put on our hearts. We have spent time in prayer as a team to develop content for each of the talks. Each talk will be delivered by someone who is actively working in an Alliance ministry with young adults. We are very confident that these 6, 15-minute messages will be impactful, relevant, and biblical.

We would love you to stay Saturday night and attend one of the many Alliance Churches in the area on Sunday morning! Many of them are listed in your confirmation email after registration.

10. I’m 31+, can I still come?

In order to sharpen our focus on the “emerging adulthood” stage of life, we are encouraging conference attendance for those between the ages of 18-30. We recognize that every church defines this stage of life slightly differently, so exceptions will be made for those 31+ who participate regularly in their local church’s young adult ministry. Young adult ministry leaders in their local church and district/denominational leaders are also welcome to attend.

11. Will Childcare be provided?

We are unable to provide childcare for this conference. A nursing mother’s room will be available for use as needed.

12. Where will the next AYA Conference be?

We are actively praying about where to go next! Our intention is to host regional conferences around the United States. If you think your church would be a good host site and want to discuss what that could mean, contact [email protected]!
