The Axis Conference began in 2009 at The Life Church in Memphis, TN. Birthed out of a dream and desire of Senior Pastors, John & Leslie Siebeling, the goal of the conference was to help young people grow in their faith, life and leadership. What started as a gathering of a couple hundred teenagers has grown into a significant movement of teenagers and churches from around the United States.
Each June, almost 2000 6th-12th graders gather for 4 nights and 3 days of powerful worship, life-changing encounters with God, intense tribal war team competitions, impactful messages from dynamic communicators, practical breakout sessions and a whole lot of fun. In addition to all this, the final day of the conference features a big serve day throughout the city of Memphis. After being poured into for 3 days, students are sent out to various serve sites to make an impact on others. We believe wholeheartedly that God desires to use young people to lead in life and build His Church and that belief is threaded throughout the conference each year.
The word Axis means “a point on which something centers on or revolves around.” The goal of the Axis Student Conference is to inspire young people to put Jesus and His Church at the center of their world while equipping them to make a difference wherever they go. Every year, we hear stories of tremendous life change and truly believe the full impact of these weeks won’t be felt until eternity.
