Conference Elements

Main Sessions

Our main sessions are power-packed services full of passionate worship, inspiring teaching from some of the greatest communicators on the planet & lots of incredible technical and fun elements. The potential of each session is endless as students are transformed by God’s word, moved by God’s presence and inspired by the passion of their peers.

Breakout Sessions

During the days, students have an opportunity to be a part of some practical breakout sessions that touch every area of life and leadership. Each breakout session is fun, challenging, memorable and each year we get great feedback from many about how much they learned. Our goal is that students don’t just leave inspired, but they leave equipped to do everything God has called them to do.

Leader Sessions

Axis Nation isn’t just for young people - our hope is always that Youth Pastors and Leaders feel refreshed, inspired and leave with something practical that they can take back home. Leader Sessions are designed specifically for that. Hear from some of the conference lineup about life, ministry and more. Leader sessions take place at the same time as student breakouts.

Tribal Wars

Tribal Wars is the battle of all battles. Each student is assigned a Tribal War Team for the conference on Monday night. Throughout the week, students compete in epic games, complete special challenges, find hidden items for points, display unmatched team spirit and more. Only one team can be crowned the champion. The unbelievable competitiveness of Tribal Wars each year is only surpassed by the unparalleled passion shown by students and team captains.

Serve Day

A highlight of the week, Thursday’s Massive Serve Day is an opportunity for students to put what they’ve been taught into action. Students are broken into groups and assigned a different serve site around the city of Memphis. Visiting nursing homes, passing out groceries, serving local police and fire departments, cleaning up neighborhoods - each year we hear tremendous testimonies of God really using each and every student to make a difference in their world. Students serve alongside our incredible Memphis Dream Center team.

After Parties

At Axis Nation, we love to party - and each night, we do just that. Food trucks, inflatables, go-karts, dance parties, laser tag and a whole lot more. Some nights even feature bigger events like a Silent Disco Dance Party, a live concert and other special elements. The goal? Have so much fun at Axis Nation that the rest of your summer doesn’t even compare!
