GYC 2017 Theme: Arise

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. – Isaiah 60:1-3

As in the days of the prophet Isaiah, the world today is enshrouded in sin and darkness. Isaiah was given a glorious vision of God shining through His victorious people, piercing that thick darkness at the end of time.
The prophecy is clear: We are called for more than simply wandering through life! God has challenged us to take hold of our identity in Him. He commands us to arise, shine, for our light has come! Because His glory – His love, truth, and righteousness – has risen upon us, we are revived and empowered to reflect it to the world.

Join us in Phoenix, Arizona from Dec. 27-31 as thousands of young people from around the world spend five days in Bible study, prayer, witnessing, fellowship, seminars, and sermons. It is our desire that this conference will help us respond to the call to arise, shine, and let the world see the glory of God.
