The Youth Awakened program is filled with amazing opportunities in ministry and fellowship. Youth will receive hands-on ministry training, powerful teachings, impartation, and opportunities to walk out their faith on the streets of Oklahoma City.

Youth will have an authentic encounter with God while growing in boldness and learning about their authority in Christ.

Youth Awakened meets every morning for worship, speaker messages/ministry, and games. In the afternoon they will go on excursions which include a power evangelism scavenger hunt, an afternoon at a waterpark (white-water rafting, lazy river, paddleboarding, etc.), and team-building games. At night, the youth will meet together for youth sessions.

  • Youth must be entering 6th grade and have just completed 12th at the time of the conference in order to participate in this optional program.
  • We are unable to offer any translation options for Youth Awakened, so all children participating must understand English.
  • Unfortunately, we do not have the staffing to accommodate youth with special needs at this time.
  • There will be no Youth Awakened registrations on site. Youth registration closes on July 25th.

Impartation & Activation from Conference Speakers

Youth will listen to teaching from Sean & Christa Smith, Will Hart, Brian Starley, and Charity Cook. They will be activated to seek after the Father's Heart and deepen their walk with the Lord. 


"Getting to be in an atmosphere that is saturated with the presence of the Lord for an extended period of time like it is in conferences like this has allowed my boys to experience many gentle yet powerful encounters with the Lord, helping them to understand examples of what it looks like and feels like when God shows up. Most of the world is shut out and their attention is more readily focused on God. My son especially loved missions outreach and praying for the people they encountered. When it was his turn to pray, his heart was overjoyed as they watched God show up and touch the life of the lady they were praying for. Her back was partially healed right there on the spot, and as they walked away, they just kept praying that she would receive a full recovery."
"During outreach, one little boy about 7 years old was very impacted by our team. He came back around us by the food and wanted a bag of chips. We gave him a whole arm full. More than he could hold. We had so much leftover we have him a whole box and he was afraid to take it. We followed him back to his apartment. His mom had received food but we offered her more. She said she had 7 kids and was thankful. So little man came back to the group with us and enjoyed a bunch of strawberries. He asked us when we would come back. As our buses left he ran to the gate and waved by. I told him Jesus really really loved him!!! He wanted to give him all of those chips."
"One of our youth came back home and prayed for his mom's feet and her arches were restored, fully healed. Delivered of fear of evangelizing for just about everyone. Came back with fire that is spreading to others in the church."
"One daughter felt activated during prayer on the first night. She felt prompted to pray for people the rest of the week as she was overcome with the Love of God. One daughter felt moved to tears as her friend received prayer and she is just so excited to share God with more people. One daughter began to feel anxious and cried upon going up for prayer and wanted to leave. As we stepped back to the middle section, a volunteer came and prayed for her she said the sounds and noise that was pressing in on her felt farther away as if the Lord placed her in the middle of a bubble and she FELT PEACE! She had also been struggling with eating and not feeling hungry for months. Her stomach would feel upset at the thought of eating. I am happy to report that she IS HUNGRY and has been since the conference!"
