We would love to have each group sing a special song.
Practice your specials at home, as there will be very limited time to do a final practice during the conference.
You can let us know what songs you'll be singing (with lyrics) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bearing in mind that many of you play instruments in your local churches, we cannot have everyone play their instrument during the song services. For harmonic reasons we will play with a fixed instrumental setup. However you are more than welcome to play your instrument during your group's special.
Our administration can no longer provide any visa guarantee letters or visa invitations. If you want to come to the youth conference and need a visa, please ask a friend to write a visa invitation letter for you. Please do not contact our administration, as they cannot help you with this question.

YOUTH CONFERENCE THEME
18.Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
19. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
WMB, 55-1110 - A Hidden Life In Christ, San Fernando California, U.S.A.
25 What a beautiful picture it is today of a consecrated life who, once enters into with Christ, dead to the things of the world, hid away with God, and the veil’s dropped down around, and all the world’s shut off. Then Christianity and religion becomes a pleasure to every believer.
Today people just have enough religion to make them miserable, knowing that they ought to do this, they’re trying to escape hell. Well, if that’s the way I felt about it, brother, I don’t know what I would do.
Oh, get in with Christ. Shut off from the things of the world, for, to commune with Him is a pleasure. It’s beautiful. It’s something that fills and satisfies the soul, something that gives you peace that passes all understanding. All the crosses become flying wings. All the burdens are chariot wheels. Oh, you can fly away.
26 “My burdens are light.” Yoke up with Him, the yoke is all padded with Hallelujahs. When you’re once inside the veil with Him, He becomes your life.
The prophet said that in…The people of the old days said I…That He would write His laws anew. He would put them in their heart.
Now, Mount Sinai was a place of duty. But Mount Calvary was a place of grace. People are still trying to live on Mount Sinai. “If I’ll go to church, if I’ll pay my dues, if I’ll do this or do that, if I’ll quit this and stop that.” That’s still on Mount Sinai.
When you come to a place where you are dead, and your life is hid in God through Christ, sealed by the Holy Ghost, the whole Christian life becomes a great glorious shout and a hallelujah to you. And you’re hid away daily.
Now, we notice that once in there, he was isolated from the world. The curtains dropped around him and he was hid away with God. Everything become real, a glory. In this place where we once get hid away with Christ, everything becomes a new thing to us then.
