Frequently Asked Questions

Over the last 38 years, almost 40,000 youth & youth workers through the Today's Teens Conference have been inspired, resourced & equipped with the latest research, insights and practical tools to reach and disciple to the next generation. For many, it has become an annual "family gathering" of youth ministry leaders, both paid and volunteer, who comes from the local church ministry, serve as community youth worker, involved in camp ministry or simply are parenting teens, to encourage and spur one another on as we seek to see more youth move closer in relationship with Jesus.

Over the years, Youth Unlimited Toronto has continued to see this conference be adapted and redesigned over time under the leadership of Matt Wilkinson & Paul Robertson in order to most effective respond to the currently reality and needs of the youth and youth workers. Yet through it all, the conference has remained committed to providing a high quality, very practical and affordable training to thousands of youth ministry leaders both paid & volunteer and youth from across 40+ denominations.

As we enter into our 38th year in the midst of a world-wide pandemic we realized that it was best that we once again redesigned the conference for this year to be a one-day online and interactive experience for Youth Workers in which we will be focusing on the reality that we are going through a very tough time but at the same time we have the opportunity to come together and learn from one another on how we can REIMAGINE what it will take to effectively reach and engage the next generation with the person and message of Jesus!

(NOTE: In order to do online well, we need to just focus on the Youth Worker with this years conference, but be assured we will be bringing back the youth track component for Today's Teens 2022)

There are lots of WINS with this new format - this virtual interactive conference will allow us to:

  • model and practice social distancing
  • have those who can be able to gather in watch parties
  • make attendance possible to a broader group of Youth Workers across the country.

  • Creative main stage experiences with great learnings from our keynote speakers
  • Many practical breakout sessions exploring Canadian youth ministry along with having live Q & A with the speaker
  • A 1-hour creative and interactive "REIMAGINE" experience right after lunch
  • Engaging musical worship by Sanctus Church Worship
  • Tons of crazy fun & giveaways with MC's (Melinda Estabrooks, Mike Gordon & Meisha Watson)
  • Bonus of getting many special guests appearances throughout the conference.
  • Access to Pre & Post Conference training on the Castle TV App


In our commitment to always bring a high quality experience Youth Unlimited has teamed up with Crossroads Production to be able to produce a premier level experience that will be engaging, relevant and interactive but also will come with a bonus element - there will be PRE and POST conference trainings and resources available to you through the Today's Teens Channel on the Castle TV App!
