KEY Conferences Winterlight Youth Week
Our premier youth conferences have evolved since Kanuga’s first conference in 1928. Today, we host a community of young people and equip them to be leaders in their youth groups and ministries back home. These experiences nurture the initiative and cultivate the influence of participants. They include Youth Week (Junior Young People-JYP) and Senior Young People-SYP) and our year-end celebration, Winterlight.

Kanuga’s youth conferences are ideal for youth groups and youth ministries, as well as young people and adults who serve as leaders in their churches. It’s the Kanuga spirit that sets us apart!


Our Mission

KEY Conferences (Kanuga Empowered Youth) serves those who seek empowerment, inspiration, and community. We invite participants into a vibrant nationwide fellowship that fosters connection and leadership within the Church and in the world.
