The United Methodist Young Preachers Festival takes place at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection’s campus in Leawood, KS.

Church of the Resurrection started in 1990 as a small, upstart church with a big dream of becoming a church that welcomes thinking people who were not actively involved in a church. Our first 28 years have been an amazing journey with thousands of people finding greater hope, purpose and meaning in their lives here. And, they’ve found that a church like this can quickly become a great place for personal connections and relationships that will last a lifetime.

Church of the Resurrection has four locations in the Kansas City area including: Leawood, KS; Olathe, KS; Downtown Kansas City, MO; and Blue Springs, MO which offer ministry in their communities, all with the same vision and heartbeat. Learn more about Church of the Resurrection at
