A Leading Saints Virtual Event

Now Available!

Learn what works in leading youth and young adults

As leaders, as we consider the different demographics we strive to bring to Jesus Christ, the youth (and young adults) are who most people worry about the most. 

There is research and proven tactics to effectively lead youth in a way that will give them a better chance in mortality. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer: we simply need to better understand how to lead them back to core principles and doctrines. 

The Young Saints virtual conference is a collection of over 20 powerful sessions into the most effective and most relevant ways to lead the rising generation in our Latter-day Saints community today.
