Originally starting in 2008, the Student Leaders’ Conference began with the purpose of cultivateing and growing the student leaders of the Assemblies of God endorsed colleges. Leaders meet in Springfield for a weekend to be equipped, empowered, and encouraged. The event resembles the AG Faculty Conference in that we provide interactive sessions, complimentary meals and time for catching up with others. However, our sessions focus on challenges that students are currently facing, including sociological and administrative hurdles.
The conference this year takes place from November 14 - 16. Students will attend leadership sessions with acclaimed AG church leader Pastor Rod Loy and AGTS professor Melody Palmer.
Students will also discuss strategies for their own schools through socialization during dinners and Identity groups. We hope to foster future relationships between our leaders after they leave.
Student leaders from across the country came to our annual conference to unite ideas and befriend students who share common interests and goals. They started off with a grand buffet dinner and time with our General Superintendent the first night. The next morning, students toured AGTS and the AG National Leadership and Resource Center to learn about our day-to-day operations. Finishing off the night, students received a taste of the Ozarks at the Dixie Stampede show in Branson. The final day, teachers Dave Moore and Melody Palm offered sessions on effective leadership.
