FAQs for Encounter MKE //
What will I experience?
The Encounter MKE Steubenville Young Adult conference will facilitate an opportunity to encounter the love of Christ. There will be powerful talks and workshops given by nationally known Catholic speakers. These talks will be given in a TED talk style and will be relevant to your life as a young adult. There will also be a worship band that will lead the conference in prayer through music.
Have I experienced something like this before?
Probably not! The Steubenville experience has made their conferences nationally recognized for 40 years and have served thousands of people over the years. Even if you've attended Steubenville Youth Conferences in the past, Encounter MKE is different and relevant to your life as a young adult. Visit steubenvilleconferences.org for more information.

I've registered, should I have received an admission ticket?
After registering you should receive a confirmation email, but there will not be any admission ticket in the email. Rather, when you arrive on November 11th there will be registration tables and you will just have to give your name. Once you are all signed in you will be given a name badge, schedule of the day, and any other important information.
I've registered a group, do you need everyone in the groups information?
Yes. If you signed up a group you will receive an email in the near future asking for similar information (name, age, address, etc.) about each member of your group.
I've registered a group, how do we sign in at the conference?
When you arrive on November 11th there will be a registration table specifically for groups to sign in at. We ask that only the group leader (the person who registered the group) comes up to sign the entire group in. The group leader will be given the name badges, schedules, and any other important information for the entire group.
What is included in the price?
The registration fee includes attending the conference and lunch (dinner is not provided).
