You do not want the teen in your life to miss out on this incredible opportunity! For over twenty years, PA Family has hosted our City on the Hill (COTH) Youth Leadership and Worldview conference to equip young adults to confidently stand in their faith and make a difference in their communities. 

This year, COTH will take place July 21st-27th, 2024 at Lancaster Bible College. During the first half of the week, we bring in nationally recognized speakers to cover the important social issues that young adults are facing everyday, like defending the sanctity of life, understanding a biblical view of gender and sexuality, and more. 

Our culture is constantly bombarding the next generation with confusion and lies. We seek to give them the biblical worldview they need to see through the lies and engage with cultural issues from a foundation of truth.

During the second half of the week, students will participate in a mock legislative session, run for leadership positions, defend legislation, and even debate on the State Senate floor at our beautiful Capitol building in Harrisburg! 

Our aim is for young adults to leave feeling confident, informed, encouraged, and stronger than ever in their faith. 

Here’s what alumni have said about COTH:

  • An amazing experience that left me feeling fully equipped to be a ‘city on a hill’ in my home, my community, my country, and my world.”
  • “It’s a life changing experience. What I learned here, the friends I’ve made…God truly worked in my life this week. I always look forward to COTH and would recommend it to anyone. You don’t necessarily have to be interested in politics. You gain so much more than that.”
  • “It was absolutely amazing and totally different than I had ever expected. I came to COTH being pretty nervous and not sure of what to expect, but it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life; not only did I learn how to better stand up for what I believe, but I also make life-long friendships and grew a lot closer to God as well.”
  • I have never felt God in such a real way as I did at COTH. The knowledge and perspective shift I gained was invaluable.”
  • It is a one-of-a-kind experience. Truly life-changing.”
