This event has been postponed.
We'll post the new dates as soon as they are available.

What new ministries to engage youth and young adults might be conceived during this three-day event? How can we imagine the world with the kind of imagination that God would want us to have?

The New York Conference, in conjunction with Ministry Incubators, invites all churches to put together a team of five to attend this life-changing event. One member of your team should be a youth, aged 13-18. Each team will create at least one new ministry idea for their church or community, and then pitch the plan to receive ministry grants ranging from $500 to $7500.

If you were at annual conference in June, you heard about the "Hatchathon" from Rev. David Gilmore, and guest speaker, Rev. Dr. Kenda Creasy Dean, who asked, "Why do it? . . . Big ideas will not save the church, only Jesus Christ can save the church. Only love matters; love makes us inventors. Do it for love."

Registration fee: $500 per team, but each team entered will receive a minimum ministry grant of $500, with the top 3 teams receiving grants of $2,500, $5,000, and $7,500
