Convention


Each year over 800 youth from all over Ontario meet with God for four days of life-changing experiences.

The All Ontario Youth Convention traces its roots all the way back to 1975 when a group of young adults began hosting province-wide gatherings for young people within the Christian Reformed denomination.

Fast forward more than 35 years and the AOYC continues to grow, with nearly 900 youth and leaders attending in 2015.

Teens are given opportunities to grow through dynamic, youth-focused speaking and teaching that challenges each person to impact the communities that God has placed them in. Service opportunities, recreation and relationship building activities, games, intramurals, concerts, and meals add to a full weekend of life-changing experiences.

What is AOYC all about?

  • Meeting people in their brokenness so God can heal them
  • Encouraging and equipping leaders so God can use them
  • Creating an environment where God can transform people
  • Providing a catalyst for innovative change in church and community

Venue


Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo

For the last number of years, the AOYC has been hosted at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. Its central location makes it ideal for many of the students traveling to the Convention and it has great accommodations and facilities.

Students are housed in the dorms (separate male and female buildings) with roomates and leaders. Small groups also meet in dorms and common areas.

Meals are served in Laurier's cafeteria. Mainstage sessions are held in the athletic facility, and reach-ins (smaller workshops) take place in a variety of classrooms and theatres.
