Mission Statement


Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Youth Outreach Office (YOO) exists to evangelize youth primarily through large conferences and events. Charisms of these events include evangelical preaching, inspired witnessing, and anointed worship – all aimed at awakening the gift of faith in Jesus Christ. At the heart of the conference weekend are the sacraments, through which youth can experience the Father’s loving mercy, forgiveness, and healing compassion. This experience will enable them to respond to the mission of rebuilding the Church and carrying Christ’s love to the world. Franciscan University is also committed to providing resources for teens and youth ministers that will aid in their spiritual life as well as ministry.

Description


Thirty years ago, 500 youth and young adults gathered on our campus in Steubenville, Ohio for the very first youth conference. This summer, over 40,000 teens will participate at eighteen youth conference all over North America. Franciscan University of Steubenville is a vibrant Catholic college built upon Jesus Christ – the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Rooted in Franciscan tradition, we accept the call given to St. Francis to, "Go and rebuild My Church." This is done not only through our campus life, but also through our Youth Outreach Office, which serves the wider Church. Our focus is on bringing high school students into a life changing relationship with God and serving those who serve them. We were created to seek and know the truth and encounter the life of God. Therefore, we are committed to boldly proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth, and the Life and illuminating for young people the richness of the Catholic Church. We understand that teens are constantly confronted with lies and choices that lead them away from Christ and the Church. Our conferences not only provide teens the opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ, but challenge them to live for Him. Through the power of the Sacraments, inspiring talks, dynamic music, and expressive praise, teens are given an awesome weekend that can literally change the course of their lives. We are excited about all that God has done over the past 30 years and look with expectation toward the future. We ask that you partner with us in our mission through prayer. For without the power of the Holy Spirit, we can do nothing.
