2021 Virtual Youth Leadership Camp!

After an unpredictable and challenging year, the COVID-19 pandemic has left a lasting impact on the operations of Baylor University. We have eagerly awaited news from the university on how to proceed with our summer 2021 planning. After much deliberation, Worship Lab will be held in an all-virtual format for the summer of 2021. Helping students understand how to utilize gifts they have been given for service in the church is paramount to our work at Baylor, and no matter what profession a student ends up pursuing, we want you to see and know the value of remaining connected to the church, using any and all gifts for the glory of God. We hope that you and your students still plan to join us this summer for our 2-day camp.
