This will be the 26th Mid-Atlantic Youth Conference, and we are as excited about this conference as we have ever been about any conference before!  We believe that God will use this Christmas break as a time of spiritual revival for our students.  We have some great things planned for this conference, and we are excited about welcoming in the new year together with fireworks by Zambelli Brothers on our campus!  You don’t want to miss MAYC13.
