The two conference weeks will bring nearly 1,000 students and youth workers from across the country to Clarks Summit. TLC exists to train student leaders to influence their churches and communities for Christ.

A Unique Experience
This summer will be the 45th year for TLC at BBC. The unique conference has changed hearts of both teens and leaders, giving them a sharper understanding of skills and knowledge to enhance their ministries. The pair of week-long events teaches and trains students for Christian leadership in their homes, schools, and churches.
"TLC was a great experience for me. God really showed me a lot of things that weren't going right in my Christian walk and He helped me change those things," said Kaley Berry of Binghamton, NY. "TLC truly is amazing. They have good food and fun activities and the speakers connect with you deeply."
Students and youth workers from across the country attend workshops and enjoy worship sessions throughout the week. The speakers for main sessions and workshops focus on being an influencer for Christ and taking advantage of opportunities to serve, minister, and lead others.
Listen to speakers from previous conferences here.
"God used the bold preaching of His Word, the honest care of my counselor, and the practical advice from the workshops to inspire me to boldly and passionately pursue Him and His glory," said Lauren Eichelberger of Dillsburg, PA.
Featured speakers are ministry veterans and come from a range of backgrounds. This year's presenters include:
-Dwight Peterson, Director of TLC
-Dr. Mike Stallard, Baptist Bible Seminary Dean
