About Us 

September 24th & 25th
Kent, WA
In-person/ Virtual 

The Shift Conference:

The 9th Annual Young Adult conference aims to empower and equip individuals to be high impact leaders in their families, local communities, faith spaces, personal and professional spheres. Attendees will be encouraged to evaluate specific areas of their lives to see/hear where God is calling them to make necessary SHIFT(S) to maintain and sustain themselves in yet, another post-pandemic season.


The Shift Conference is an opportunity for Young Adults (18-39) to fellowship, learn, network and worship. Through fellowship, we connect like-minded Christians looking for community, support, and service to others. We offer practical and spiritual workshops to overcome life’s challenges and critical issues. Through various activities, large and small, we create opportunities for attendees to meet and make new friends with other young adults from various backgrounds and professional networks. Together in worship, we
uplift the name of Jesus in our Saturday night of Worship and Sunday morning Worship services.


We invite you to join us as we explore how and what we need to individually and
collectively RECONNECT after 2-3 years of social distancing, separation, and managing
relationships. We will pause and REFLECT on our emotional and mental well-being as a result
of the pandemic. Finally, we will be equipped with the tools, resources and inspiration needed to
RE-ENGAGE in our churches, ministries, families, and communities! Our time is now! What are
you waiting for?
