We are called to make disciples of all nations — but before we can evangelize the world, we must evangelize those closest to home.
Come join FOCUS alumni, parishioners, parish staff, professionals, and many other members of the Church to learn how to share the story of salvation and Christ’s message of love in the places you live, work, serve, and worship.
Day Pass*: $120
*Day pass and commuter pass do not include housing.
A majority of our conference attendees fundraise toward their registration, travel costs, food, and more, raising enough to cover their conference pass in part or even in full.
Why should I find partners to send me to SLS18?
SLS18 has the potential to transform not only you into a missionary disciple of Jesus Christ, but also your parish into a beacon of hope and place of encounter with Christ’s grace.
Parishioners have found that partnerships work the best in getting them to conference, regardless of financial obstacles:
Step 1: The appeal
To whom can you reach out?
- Your parish
- Your pastor
- Pastoral or finance councils
- Parish organizations
- Young adult minister
- (Arch)diocese evangelization/young adult department
You can ask them for full or partial funds (these gifts will not be tax-deductible). Remember, the effects of this conference will extend far beyond you; you will be an instrument of transformation in your parish! Pastors and church leaders will be happy to make this strategic investment.
Step 2: Follow up after SLS18
- Send thank you notes to all who donated
- Meet with the pastor/diocese leader to share what you learned
- Meet with staff and key parishioners to share the material from SLS18
To assist your fundraising efforts, please feel free to download this SLS18 fundraising packet, which includes useful partnership tips, template letters, and more.
