YQ is much more than your average youth retreat.  With 1800+ attendees from all over the country, this event explodes with energy. The festivities include: concerts from diverse genres, professional light shows, tons of crazy activities, and most importantly, world-class preaching and teaching. The sessions throughout the weekend will have one speaker, one worship band, and one focus for teaching. Youth groups will eat together and stay in the same dorms. After each main session, there will be "Youth Group Time" where your youth can talk with their leaders and discuss the main message and what that means for their lives. This makes YQ the best of both worlds: Looks like a festival, feels like a retreat. There is nothing else like it.
