The GREAT logo

Make your plans now to attend the Great Northwest Field Youth Conference in May 2024!

Hosted on the campus of Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, ID, the GREAT will be a gathering of students from across the Northwest Field engaging in worship, fellowship and discipleship as we all join together as one Church to pursue Jesus together! This youth conference for our entire Northwest Field will be a mini-NYC, but with our own Great Northwest feel. Inspiring speakers, deep worship experiences and awesome fun are the cornerstones of the weekend. We also will have the campus of Northwest Nazarene University all to ourselves!

Carly BartlettThe Great is excited to welcome NYC 23′ speaker, Carly Barlett, as our guest speaker! Carly is a preacher, podcaster and rollercoaster enthusiast from the Pacific Northwest. Since 2011, she has been traveling the country speaking and leading worship at retreats, camps, and conferences. Carly is the host of the “Ditching Perfection” podcast, where each week she encourages her listeners to pursue wholeness in Jesus, rather than trying to have it all together. Carly holds an MBA from Northwest Nazarene University and an M.Div. from Nazarene Theological Seminary. Carly is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene and currently serves on the pastoral staff team at Nampa College Church. She also teaches public speaking courses at Northwest Nazarene University as an adjunct faculty member. Carly is married to her college sweetheart, Mike, who is a visual arts professor at NNU and a major Gonzaga basketball fan. Mike and Carly have two bold, vivacious daughters who love Jesus, Disney princesses and living room dance parties. We are thrilled to have her as our speaker!

The GREAT will take place May 24-27. Event registration and move-in will begin on Friday night, May 24, kicking us off for an amazing three-day event. Registration, meals, lodging, giveaways, and activities while on NNU’s campus are included in the cost of the event. Registration can be completed as groups or separately, but let us know as soon as possible that you are planning to be there! Registration at the regular rate closes on Friday, April 26.

Our Northwest Field Quizzing competition will also be happening as a part of this conference, and we can’t wait to celebrate and cheer for our amazing Northwest Field Quizzers as a part of this conference!

See you soon at the GREAT Northwest Field Youth Conference 2024!
