Every 3 years, the PCUSA partners with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church to host an international event for approximately 6,000 senior high youth. Historically, the event has been at Purdue University, but this year it will move to the Indianapolis Convention Center with delegates staying in nearby hotels. Registration for this event is done primarily through presbyteries and each has a limited number of spaces in their delegation (youth & chaperones).
When is Triennium?
Saturday, July 23 – Thursday, July 28, 2022 (including travel time)

How much does it cost?
$1,100* approximately (to include conference, hotel, meals, transportation, shirt & trading pins)
- Cost is pending final hotel rates, any fundraising we do & COVID restrictions for group size.

Who can Apply?
Applicants are considered for the delegation upon receiving an application AND deposit. If the delegate is not selected, the deposit is returned. Churches are encouraged to review applicants:
- Will the youth delegate be 15 years old or no more than 18 on July 24, 2022?
- Has the delegate attended Triennium in the past? Could they possibly attend in 2025?

If spaces remain open, delegates are selected from a waiting list.
