What is lit?

Leaders in Training (LiT) is an annual youth conference aimed at informing and edifying young people as they grow in the Lord. At LiT, speakers preach and teach to teens and their youth workers about current events and issues facing Christian young people. Our speakers will help young people look at these issues from a Biblical, Christian perspective, while also providing them an opportunity to learn about Christian summer camps and Christian colleges to help them plan for the future.


Pastors, Youth Pastors, and Group Sponsors also benefit by being able to learn about current issues, connect with others in the ministry, and have a great time of fellowship with their young people!


Best of all, LiT is a single day jam-packed with skits, activities, preaching, teaching, singing, and so much more! Come and join us Saturday, December 5!

Why go to lit?

At LiT, teens and adults will not only benefit from the preaching and teaching, but they will also be given opportunities to meet and greet with other youth groups, youth workers, and pastors!


Also, representatives from Crown College of the Bible, Maranatha Baptist University, and Pensacola Christian College will be available to provide information and answer questions for teens seeking God's will for their future. It is a great opportunity for them as they prepare for their life's calling in serving our Lord Jesus Christ!


In addition to our college reps, we will have representatives from various camps to help get our teens  informed and excited for the upcoming camp season!
