The 2020 Conference has been canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please be in touch with your local YMCA about other opportunities to get involved.
The YMCA Christian Values Conference brings together young people from across the country. The conference is held at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, North Carolina. The setting, with its beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, reminds us all of God’s handiwork.
Our Mission is inspired by John 17:21, “that they all may be one.” At the conference, we promise to:
- Create a diverse atmosphere that is welcoming to all
- Exemplify sound moral beliefs & emphasize the importance of being an example to peers on and off the mountain
- Provide positive, consistent discipline
- Provide a safe, positive, Christian environment
- Provide caring adults who are dedicated to the spiritual, mental, and physical growth of all teens
- Provide active steps in spiritual growth
- Supply positive life skills for teens
- Create diverse, unique, challenging activities that encourage continued participation
