Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Hosted by the Church of the Nazarene, NYC is a powerful youth event that has been held in different locations over the past six decades. Taking place every four years, NYC provides an opportunity for high school students from the USA and Canada to be united in a time of worship, teaching, and community service.

NYC 2019 will be held July 10-14, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

Drawn from Matthew 22:37-40, the theme of NYC 2019 is Love God Love Others. Students will be challenged to focus on the Author of love as we consider how holy lives are formed when love for God and love for others comes together. Learn more below.

Love God Love Others

NYC invites students to participate in plenary sessions with engaging speakers and creative artists, live concerts featuring top Christian recording artists, Ministry With Others service projects throughout Phoenix, interactive discipleship experiences, and a Recreation Hall filled with individual and group activities, games, and exhibits.

All NYC 2019 participants are required to register and attend with their District (a geographical grouping of local Nazarene churches).
