Exhibitors and Sponsors


NYWC has supported youth ministry for 50 years.  Youth workers from across the country and a variety of denominations are planning to join us in Columbus for four days to be rejuvenated, inspired, and encouraged. NYWC is attended by youth ministry pastors, volunteers, students, workers, and their spouses – anyone interested in helping teenagers find and follow Jesus. 

While at NYWC our attendees engage in breakout sessions, panels, discussions, personal spiritual renewal, professional coaching, leadership development, and more! They visit our exhibit hall in search of resources to help them in their youth ministries back home.

We invite you to partner with us as we all work together to help equip and encourage youth workers.
