Where are you taking your youth this summer?

Posted by Liz Perraud at

Dear Church Leader,

You may be familiar with our summer Youth Summits (formerly called LOGOS Conferences). Your church may even have attended years ago. I’m writing to you today as GenOn’s Youth Summit Coordinator to invite you to bring a group of youth and leaders this summer to Estes Park, Colorado or Wheeling, West Virginia to experience this incredible week of LOGOS. Even if your congregation doesn’t “do” LOGOS with your high schoolers right now, we’d still love for you to consider attending this Youth Summit. It would be a GREAT week to connect with your older youth! It’s also an opportunity to build a larger, diverse community among other Christian youth, young adults, and adults from other areas of our country!

For over 40 years, our Youth Summits have been life-changing experiences for high school youth, young adults (college aged youth), and their leaders! The GenOn Summit is a week of Bible study, worship, recreation, shared meals, and mission work. LOGOS!

Summit West will be held at the YMCA of the Rockies
Estes Park, CO
July 8-14, 2018

Summit East will be held on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University
Wheeling, WV
July 15-21, 2018

Many churches attend our Summit for the first time with just a few youth and a leader or two to check it out. Then they go home and tell the rest about their awesome experience and that’s all it takes! That’s exactly how my home church began --- we had only 4 youth and 2 adults attend Summit East the first year and now we have about 26 people attend each summer. That’s with a congregation of only 200! I have been attending Summit for 13 years now and it remains one of my favorite weeks of the entire year!

There is a downloadable brochure on our website that gives a quick-glimpse overview of the Summit and is appropriate to give to anyone in your congregation who might be interested in learning more about the GenOn Youth Summit. Additionally, I invite you to check out the details in the information packet on that same page.

Registration is now open! Early Bird registration allows for a discount if you’re able to commit by March 1st. Discounts are also available for first time churches! Once you’ve had time to review the info, let’s chat about how I can support you to join the fun in at Summit 2018!

If you are not the youth leader in your church, could you please forward this on to the person who is and let me know who is the appropriate person to reach out to? I love to talk about Summit, so I welcome a call or email anytime! 

You can reach me at 410-320-7845 (call or text) or at KellyBurnett@genonministries.org.

We have been building Christian relationships at summer Youth Summits for over 40 years and would love to have your church be a part of that this year.

In God’s Love,
Kelly Burnett
GenOn Youth Summit Coordinator
