© Revolution Peoria 2018, A First United Methodist Church of Peoria Youth Event


Revolution Youth Conference isn’t Sunday School. Revolution is a call to action. If you are done with being told who we’re supposed to be, how you’re supposed to live, and ready to embrace a higher calling, a holy union with Christ, then Revolt. Join the Revolution.

Revolution is two days jam packed with Worship, Sessions, and Friends who just get it. Revolution joins together people (6 - 12 Grade) who are eager to see the world transformed, and are ready to leap.

Revolution was born in Monterrey, Mexico under the direction of Pastor Miguel Rios and other dedicated leaders 12 years ago. Today this Conference has evolved and found a new home at First United Methodist Church of Peoria. Together with Youth Ministry Director, Christina Koeppel, a new dawn has risen on Revolution, and a new future is set.


Live Free.  Rise Up.  Let Go.  

Join the Revolution.
