Recharge Conference youth ministry children's ministry trainingOUR STORY

Recharge was started in 2006 by a group of children’s and youth workers who recognized the need for practical, affordable, team-based training and a mid-year ministry boost. They desired to serve local churches with an excellent, team-orientated event that would inspire and equip teams in children’s, youth and family ministry. The result was a one-day multi-denominational children’s and youth ministry conference that aims to inspire and equip church staff and volunteers in their efforts to share their faith with the next generation.

Recharge is now a growing ministry. In 2013, Recharge hosted 800+ in Minneapolis. Other cities showed interest, so in 2014 we expanded to Fargo, ND and Cedar Falls, IA. During 2015 we expanded again to include Duluth, MN and Green Bay, WI while dreaming and pursuing other possible cities in the Midwest.

Recharge is facilitated by Youth Leadership and led by a local Recharge Leadership Team in each city.  Each leadership team is a representation from local church resourcing groups, academic and denominational organizations.

Recharge is the place to gather with others who have a passion to help children, teens and families love, follow and serve Jesus Christ. Check out our Photo Gallery to get a feel for what Recharge is like. Come spend a day with your team at this unique, inspirational training unlike anything else out there.
