I think the young folks were getting a little too into it and at some point Anthony shut the song down. LOL. I could say more but it would give my identity away.

It was a great event for a UPC teenager who felt like the entire world was about to see not only the revelation of Jesus name but women everywhere would look at UPC women with no makeup, uncut hair, long blue jean skirts, white socks, and tennis shoes and say "I want what they have!!!!".
That sounds correct. I know some states had their own youth conferences, but the national one came later.

Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

Okay this is off topic, but who can go to General Conference? Is it only for ministers, like BOTT?

It can be pricey to go, since it's for several days. Typically the church or district will pay the expenses for a Pastor or district official to go. My parents were both a Pastor and district officials, so I was lucky enough to go to every one up until I moved away when I was 18.

It's sad to see how small it's become. I remember having Conference in the Superdome in New Orleans, LA. There used to be about 15,000+ attending GC's; I believe last year's attendance was well under 5,000.

Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

The only reason I plan on going is because it's gonna be about 10 mins away from were I live... otherwise I could in no way afford to go.

My church is taking a group to NAYC for better cost effectiveness and I'm still not 100% sure I can afford to go to that.
