YSF FUNDRAISING AT ANNUAL CONFERENCE

The Young People's Ministry will carry on the tradition of raising money for and awareness about Youth Service Fund at Annual Conference 2017. With our new location comes new fundraising opportunities.

This year you will be able to help us reach our goal for raising $7,500 by:
- adding a printed Conference Workbook to your online AC registration,
- bidding on an amazing gift basket,
- having fun at one of our Conference photo booths,
- or getting a battery boost for your mobile device at our rapid charge station.

Be sure to bring your change, cash, and checkbooks to get us past a record setting $7,500!

Youth Service Fund is money raised by youth, administered by youth, for the benefit of youth ministries. You can apply online for a YSF grant by visiting igniteyoungpeople.com.
