How young is young?

We define young as 40(ish) or under, but we’re not asking you when your birthday is. We trust your better judgment. Mentors are able to come as well! Details on the “old(er)” FAQ below.

How clergy is clergy?

We don’t monitor this closely, either. Do you have a call to ministry of some sort? Or, are you a ministry student? Or, do you wanna come support young pastors? Or, is your spouse coming and you don’t wanna be left out? Then come on over!

I’m a Young *not-Nazarene* pastor, can I attend Young Clergy Conference?

Of course, you can! Some of the content and breakout sessions are focused on Church of the Nazarene-related topics, but you’ll get something out of it, we promise.

I’m an old(er) Nazarene pastor, can I attend Young Clergy Conference?

We love having mentors/volunteers at the conference! #YCC is meant to be targeted, but not exclusive. Our only request is that Mentor Attendees intentionally listen more than they speak. If you have any questions, you can email us at

I’d love to volunteer! How do I sign up?

Anyone can “sign up” to be a conference volunteer by purchasing a Volunteer Registration (instead of a regular conference registration). You’ll be required to help out for 6 hours over the course of the 3 days and come an hour early for a special volunteer orientation. But, hey, your registration is super cheap and you get a free t-shirt! Registration (and Volunteer Registration) is happening here:

I have an accommodation question.

We’re offering young clergy the opportunity to stay with local church families in airbnb-style accommodations. In other words, purchasing a Local Accommodation Pass (in addition to your registration) will guarantee you a bed, couch, or air mattress for the three nights of the conference.  These Local Accommodation Passes are available on a first come, first served basis on the registration page here: More questions?
