As college students step into adulthood in the midst of a global pandemic, an economic recession and great political division, they remain hopeful that we can move forward in unity.

The Christian Student Leadership Conference is an opportunity for college students who care deeply about today’s pressing issues to learn and consider how to engage in public policy, while equipping and training college students for decades to be part of the solution. We help students explore public policy issues, careers in government or public service, what it means to be engaged citizens and how to bring the light of Christ into the public square.

CSLC is typically a week-long event held in Washington, D.C. With this year’s virtual conference, we are able to make the power-packed conference completely FREE (a savings of $680) for all college students. The virtual conference on Moving Forward Together will be held over two evenings (Part 1 on January 31 at 7 p.m. ET; Part 2 on February 7 at 7 p.m. ET). We are excited to be able to expand the reach of this year’s conference through an online platform, even as we look forward to resuming the in-person conference in D.C. Join us as we work to move forward together!

“I went to the conference to better understand how politicians navigate complicated policy issues in an increasingly polarizing country. I returned with a greater idea of how to promote unity at the intersection of faith and politics. The conference deepened my calling to be a public servant and the desire to elevate the voices of young believers to lead the next generation.”
