UPDATE 2/16/18 >

After deliberating, the Wisconsin Recharge Leadership Team and YL staff are making the difficult decision to cancel the Recharge conference scheduled for Saturday, February 24 in Appleton, Wisconsin. On behalf of the staff and leadership team, I apologize for cancelling.

We enjoyed great response the past two years at Recharge Green Bay, however as we prepared for this year, the challenge to find a host church delayed promotion. We changed the branding from Recharge Green Bay to Recharge Fox Cities to expand our options to include Appleton. Due to finding a host church partner so late in the season as well other other internal staff changes and leadership team losses, we concluded our registration numbers are too low to make this year viable and honor our communicated expectations to sponsors, speakers and participants. We remain committed and expectant to host Recharge in Wisconsin. We’re shifting our momentum to securing our plans for Recharge Fox Cities in Appleton for February 2019, and hope you join us!

If you registered as a participant, you received a full refund on February 16, and you will receive an email this summer with the option to register for Recharge 2019 at the 2018 prices. Again, we are deeply sorry about ending the Recharge season this way, not being able to execute Recharge, and any unfulfilled expectations this causes. Your interest in this conference is highly appreciated, and we hope to see you in 2019!

RECHARGE was started by ministry workers for ministry workers… and is still led and run by local ministry workers. Youth Leadership partners with local leaders from a wide variety of academic, local churches, and denominational organizations. It is intentionally multi-denominational and although Youth Leadership facilitates this children’s and youth ministry conference, Recharge would not happen without each team’s leadership.
