Kairos Youth Workers Conference

The Kairos Youth Workers Conference is a weekend of training for Sword of the Spirit youth workers. It is primarily for those who serve our community high school programs, though junior high youth workers are invited to attend as well. This year, our focus is on building a Kingdom culture in our youth groups. Our goal is to equip youth workers with vision for their role, for the way of life we are trying pass on, and for the unique challenges of our time. Each year our youth workers tell us that they find the prayer and fellowship we have together at this conference to be extremely valuable.

If you're flying to the summit, it would be best to fly in and out of O'Hare International Airport (ORD). There is a train from the Chicago O'Hare airport to Mundelein which we can tell you how to take, and it costs about $10 each way.

You can also fly to Midway International Airport (MDW). You will need to take public transportation to get from this airport to Mundelein. Navigating this public transportation will be a bit more complex, but we can help talk you through it if you are interested in public transportation hopping

Kairos can pick people up from the Mundelein train station (for trains from O'Hare) and the Libertyville train station (for trains from Midway via downtown Chicago). Plan for 30-60 minutes of travel from O'Hare and 2.5 hours of travel from Midway.
