Young Leaders Conference 2019The City of College Park welcomes Democratic Presidential candidates, thousands of pastors, politicians, entrepreneurs and thought leaders for the annual Young Leaders Conference (YLC) held at the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC), August 15 – 17, 2019.
YLC is a three-day conference that attracts more than five thousand national and global influencers representing more than 40 states, and ten countries. This annual assembly is the largest global conference of predominantly African-American leaders that descend upon College Park.

"This is an extremely important year for the YLC as the 2020 presidential election approaches," says Mark Moore, Jr. (https://www.markmoorejr.com/), conference host. "We have four presidential candidates that have agreed to address members of our conference, approaching topics from a local, national and international level," says the Atlanta resident and co-pastor of Faith Covenant.

Presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Corey Booker, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former U.S. Housing Secretary Julian Castro will participate in a democratic presidential candidate forum during the conference. Mega-church pastors, international best-selling authors, self-made multi-millionaires, corporate executives, politicians and Grammy-Award winners will lead more than 40 workshops and plenary sessions. Confirmed attendees include Civil Rights Activist Rev. Al Sharpton , Pastor Jamal Bryant of Atlanta's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Bishop Noel Jones, and internationally acclaimed gospel singers PJ Morton, Marvin Sapp and Fred Hammond.

"Here is a generation that is going to change the landscape and flip the script," says Jamal Bryant, Pastor of New Birth. "Leaders from all over the world who understand that they don't want to just remember history, they want to make history."

From Baby Boomers to Generation Z, the conference assembles thousands of equally hungry and supportive visionaries together whose sole mission is to find ways to collaborate rather than compete. The conference will cover six unique areas to address the diversity of conference attendees. The Pastors and Preacherstrack will equip men and women with tools to advance in the areas of sermon preparation, ministry growth and leadership. The track for Women In Ministrywill support the needs of women who minister whether it's in the pulpit or in the boardroom. The Entrepreneurtrack will cover financial management, product creation, contracts and negotiation. The Creativestrack will focus on artists, musicians, authors, singers, and every function that thrives on creativity. The track for Familieswill provide husbands, wives, single parents and children tools for strengthening their bonds.  And lastly, the Singlestrack will focus on different perspectives in relationships
