An Explanation of NYC Conference Fees
We hear it every year at the registration desk, “Our state paid our registration fee.” Then the registration desk staff person has to explain the fee structure for the NYC. In an effort to save everyone some time and confusion, here is a breakdown of the fees for the FWB National Youth Conference.
First is the Competition Event Fee. This fee is paid for each competition event. Generally, a church or individual will pay this fee to the regional level of competition (district or state). This fee helps offset expenses for the competition, including awards, judges’ honorariums, directories, supplies, and other convention expenses. The regional competition forwards this fee to the NYC for each event that advances to national competition. This is the fee people are talking about when they say, “Our state paid our registration fee.”
The Conference Fee is something different. This is the fee paid through the Pre-Registration form or at the Convention Registration Desk in order to get the NYC ribbon for the name badge. Every person that attends any youth conference event, such as worship services, seminars, or competition, must have an NYC ribbon on his or her name badge.
The Student Conference Fee is $25 for those in grades 1-12 who Pre-Register before June 15. The Student Conference Fee is $35 at the door.
There is also a $15 Adult Conference Fee. We are pleased that adults are supporting the students and involved in the youth conference, however, the larger audiences require additional audiovisual and image projection equipment to ensure everyone can hear and see what is happening on the stage. We have determined that it is appropriate for adults to pay a small fee to attend, rather than increase the fee for students. We are also offering additional programming for adults in the form of training seminars for youth workers, parents, and pastors.
The conference fees help cover expenses including programming, speakers’ honorariums, audiovisual equipment, decorator, and other conference expenses. We offer four days of programming for a minimal fee. We hope our attendees recognize the value of the conference and enjoy the variety of events available.

“Concerning the collection for the saints...”
(1 Corinthians 16:1-3). Since the early days of Christianity, believers have been instructed to set aside money each week to help support those in need. That is what Buck-A-Week is about—developing the habit of consistent, planned giving to promote missions at home and around the world.
By setting aside a dollar each week, you can make a difference in your world. If every person who attended the National Youth Conference set aside one dollar a week, we could give over $60,000 dollars each year. If the youth in every Free Will Baptist church participated, we could raise over $2 million per year.
What are you doing to reach your world? Be a part of Buck-A-Week. Collection banks and contribution posters are available from Randall House, call 800-877-7030.
