NCCYM 2018
December 6-8
Tampa, FL

Join with leaders from our diocese and accross the country as we "Unlock" our theme for 2018, gathering with over two thousand adult leaders at the Tampa Convention Center to network, learn, and celebrate these daily themes: 

  • Unlocking and Cultivating Our Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ. How are we being discipled ourselves?

  • Unlocking Missionary Discipleship - What does it look like to be a missionary disciple today? How do we help form and accompany young people into that life/lifestyle?

  • Unlocking the Minds and Hearts of the Young – How do we effectively engage and disciple the emerging young generation to be missionaries, especially when so many are walking away from faith?


Travel logistics for the Diocesan Group

  • Any youth ministers who would like to attend should contact the OYM and notify the Coordinator of your interest.

  • All attendees will make their own travel arrangements.  We will not be traveling as a group.

  • Most attendees have reserved rooms at the Tampa Marriott Waterside and Marina hotel.  All hotel accommodations can be found on the NCCYM website.

  • Meals are taken on your own.  Some will be attending the Friday evening awards banquet, and the Diocesan Youth Office always sponsors a meal out for the group.

  • Throughout the conference the group will make plans to get together for any meals, general sessions, masses and entertainment that the group would like to partake in.  Individual participants are free to attend any aspect of the conference that they would like, but it is always nice to arrange time to share fellowship, prayer, and conversation about what we are learning.
