This year we are offering a brand-new program unlike any other! Designed especially for youth ages 12-18, this 4-day experience comes complete with Atlanta area field trips, dynamic speakers, workshops and more to help grow and properly equip our future leaders.

You must sign up through your local youth minister as part of your youth group. Don’t miss this!

YOUNG SOLDIERS PROGRAM – JUNE 5-8

– Youth must be registered by a youth group leader in order to participate.
– Youth groups must provide adult chaperones.
– Youth group leaders are responsible for registering all youth and reserving hotel rooms at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis for $139 per night.
– Meals and transportation are NOT included.


Each congregation is responsible for monitoring your youth. The National Lectureship is not responsible and/or liable for any youth incidents. We strongly suggest having adult counselors in each youth hotel room.
Please ensure that you follow these strongly encouraged and recommended procedures:

– Provide enough staff to effectively monitor your youth at all times
– Enforce strict curfews

The Marriott Marquis is a large hotel and is located in Downtown Atlanta. The safety of the youth is our number one concern. The National Lectureship will provide a security detail nightly for the comfort and safety of our youth.
