We are pleased to announce that plans are underway for the 2018 International Youth Forum-USA (IYF-USA). This special event in the life of our youth will be held July 19-20, 2018. IYF USA will function as a self-funded event since it does not have funds in the Worldwide Mission budget.

You will find some basic information below that will be helpful as you begin making plans for the youth in your area. As the event continues to take shape, we will keep you updated with the most current information. If you have specific questions about the info, please contact Poul Wilson, kpoulwilson@sbcglobal.net
