Welcome to the 2020 High School Pacific Southwest District Youth Gathering!

“Present to the End”

Each day, teenagers face fears, anxieties, and stress like we’ve never seen in a generation before. Suicide rates are on the rise. Depression, anxiety, bullying and online social media pressures plague students and their spiritual growth. This year’s High School DYG for all of Central/Southern California, Arizona, and the Las Vegas regions will bring a new light to how Christ’s presence is with us until the end. He never leaves us. … Students may think they are alone, but the God who created, loves and daily redeems them through their baptism is with them, walking beside their daily struggles, celebrating their wins, and always by their side. We need to be reminded of this eternal truth from God’s Word!
Over the course of the weekend, students will have the opportunity to serve, grow in faith, make new friends and connect with old friends, have fun in a variety of ways and worship together. Just like other district events, this event is being organized in cooperation with PSD Youth Ministry.
The event will be January 24th – January 26th in Palm Springs, CA. Paperwork and your discounted registration fee of $100 is due by December 1st (normally $220). Registration fee between December 2nd and January 5th is $150 (normally $270). Registration fees are non-refundable.
