Montreat Youth Conference


June 2-8, 2024


Leaders organize a contingent of youth from churches in the presbytery to attend this conference at Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina. It is a unique gathering of young people from all over the country for a week of study, worship, and recreation. Activities include morning energizers, music, keynote, small group meetings, afternoon recreation activities, and evening worship.

Can you or your congregation help?

The expense to house and to transport the youth to this transformative conference is ever rising. We are taking a Special Offering for Montreat throughout February to offset those costs so more youth can afford to attend. Make an online donation through our secure portal here. Be sure to use the NOTES section and type in MONTREAT.

Rising 9th graders through graduating Seniors will not want to miss this opportunity to affirm their call to be and to shape the church of Jesus Christ at the 2021 Montreat Youth Conference!

Come to the mountains of North Carolina as part of the Savannah Presbytery delegation to a place unlike any other. Where authenticity, community, connection, and God’s truth thrives and youth come to know and believe they are God’s beloved. Montreat is an inclusive environment where each voice can be heard and each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and all are embraced.

This summer, we will build an accepting community of unconditional love where every story matters. Through engaging worship, lively music, practices of gratitude and fun, we will offer youth different opportunities to cultivate their spiritual faith journeys and practice sabbath. We will provide a secure space that is loving, holy, and authentic so that we may glorify God in all that we do, inspiring and equipping a lifetime of faith.

A Typical Day At Montreat may include: Fun Energizers, Small Groups, Inspiring Worship, Outdoor Events, Lookout Mountain, My Father’s Pizza, Back Home Time and much more!

Youth leave Montreat knowing:

  • Their faith matters.
  • They are loved as they are.
  • They are part of a community of faith.
