The United Youth-Adult Conference in December 1999, hosted a one-day workshop for youth entitled “Teen Summit ’99 – Putting God First in the New Millennium.” The Summit laid the groundwork for the Arthur Langford, Jr. Teen Leadership Institute. The focus was on the spiritual, mental and physical growth of youth. A follow-up workshop with parents and youth advisors was held in March 2000. The workshop also helped to build the foundation for the Institute.
