It's hard leading alone. Don't get used to it. Join UYWI & DVULI as they lead the youth worker leadership track at Flavor Fest. Come learn how to develop urban youth leaders and connect with local leaders around you.

"God has created each of us in unique ways (Gifts, Talents, Passions, Life Experience). We are customized. We can learn from the leaders that have gone before us… but we don’t have to do it exactly like them. God does something new in each generation. You have permission to be who God created you to be."

Flavor Fest summits are a one-day training event in select cities with general sessions and workshops to empower urban leaders with resources, innovation, networking, and community. Lunch is provided with registration.

The evening includes a Christian Hip-Hop Concert.


Registration Rate - $48.24 (Summit Admission)
This registration gives you access to Saturday all-day sessions, networking & workshops, lunch & Saturday evening concert.


Urban Resilience – How to help teens handle depression

This workshop is for anyone looking for support and suggestions when it comes to navigating depression, or helping those who already are. Pulling from years of experience and training, we plan to boil it down to some practical and easy techniques to utilize when talking with teens who are navigating depression.

Holistic Discipleship – How to create a holistic approach to discipleship

The focus of this workshop is cultivating a holistic approach to youth discipleship. This session invites participants to explore comprehensive strategies that extend beyond traditional methods, emphasizing the spiritual, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, and the importance of rest in youth. We will guide you through interactive discussions, practical examples, and provide a framework that creates meaningful connections with youth and their faith all year round. Join us for a learning experience that goes beyond the surface, equipping you to make a lasting impact on the lives of the next generation.
