FAQ

Essen

All types of foods are not suited to the quantity of food output that we must provide. Each portion must be kept warm and fresh, and, at the same time, we try to select food that is tasty to most young people. We assure you, however, that we do make an effort to present at least some variation in the choice of food each year.
The philosophy of our kitchen team is to find the balance between a healthy diet that tastes good and has a good price value. It may be hard to believe, but our “daily bread“ is one of the largest financial strains of the conference. Offering simple food makes it possible for us to keep the participation fee manageable for participants who normally could not afford such a conference.
Getting “seconds” is allowed at all meals because it is important to us that all participants get enough to eat. At breakfast and supper, it is possible to get “seconds” immediately. At lunch, “seconds” can normally be obtained at the furthest serving table. We ask for your understanding in waiting to get “seconds” at lunch after the first 15-20 minutes of the mealtime rush.
According to the current hygiene standards, we are not allowed to reuse plastic silverware or packaging. However, we do our best to reduce as much unnecessary waste as possible.
The food at the conference is primarily vegetarian. However, every participant has the opportunity to select only vegan options (for example, one can omit butter or cheese). We try to take as many participants as possible into consideration when we choose the ingredients for our menu.
Unfortunately, we are not able to cater to the allergies and intolerances of all participants. Although it is possible to select only vegan options, we are unfortunately not able to offer gluten-free bread, etc. In the case of these food intolerances, we kindly ask the affected persons to take care of their own alternatives.

Musik

The choice of songs is influenced largely by the incorporation of other regions; therefore some of the songs are more familiar in other regions. When choosing the songs, we try to consider our foreign participants. This also gives our German participants the opportunity and joy of learning new songs.
During the program planning, all program points must be reduced and restricted (or even deleted) due to time constraints. Otherwise, the program would become much too long. Therefore, we must also limit the singing. However, we consider praising God through music an essential part of worship, and, in order to reserve enough time for singing, we hold song service ten minutes before every main event. Of course, we cannot avoid the disturbance of people coming in during this time, but try our best by inviting all participants to be in attendance ten minutes ahead of each main event to praise God in song.
At our conference, a large number of people come together, representing a wide spectrum of music preferences. Some advocate traditional hymns and others appreciate more modern Christian songs. During the selection process, we always try to find the “golden middle”.
Our conference is no longer exclusively attended by German-speaking participants. Many of our guests speak other languages, primarily English. We also want to give them the opportunity to praise God in song. Since most of our German-speaking participants are also competent in English, the majority can take part in singing.

Anmeldung

Eine Anmeldung als Tagesgast ist über die Homepage möglich. Am Sabbat ist die Teilnahme frei. Spenden können gerne bei der Gabensammlung im Gottesdienst gegeben werden.
Yes, however you will have to pay for accomodation anyhow. At the moment there are two packages available for booking: either an all inclusive package with accomodation and meals or a package with neither food nor accomodation.
Unfortunately, it is not possible. A refund involves a significant amount of time and expense. However, you may find a replacement person who would like to take part in the conference in your place. Simply write us an e-mail indicating the name of the person you would like your fee to cover. We will then delete your registration and it will be taken over by the name you give us. You may then ask the person who takes your registration spot to forward the registration fee (which you had already paid) directly to you. Please be aware that your replacement participant must participate under the same conditions (same amount of time, including/excluding food, etc) that you had registered for, so that the fee amount is exactly equal to what you paid.
We have to manually mark all incoming payments in our system. Please have patience and check again in a few days to see if the money exited your account. If you still have not received a payment confirmation after three weeks, then you may contact us to inquire; contacting us before waiting three weeks is not necessary.
A confirmation e-mail is automatically sent after successfully completing the registration process. Please check to be sure that your e-mail address was entered correctly and check your junk mail or spam folder to be sure that the confirmation email is not there. Also make sure your inbox is not full and can still receive new messages.
Yes! Please bring a receipt of payment from your bank so that we can confirm that the participation fee has been received.
You need a PDF-Reader to open the Parent/Legal Guardian Release Form. You may download the PDF-Reader here: http://get.adobe.com/de/reader/ or http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/.
No! Due to legal obligations, we must have this document ahead of time. Without the Parent/Legal Guardian Release Form we will not be able to activate your registration, even if you have already paid.
Ihr könnt gerne als gesamte Familie zum YiMC kommen. Aufgrund der Platzverhältnisse ist es allerdings leider nicht möglich, jeder Familie ein eigenes Familien-Klassenzimmer zur Verfügung zu stellen. Familienzimmer bedeutet daher, dass dort die Mutter mit ihren Babys und/oder Kleinkindern gemeinsam mit anderen Müttern und deren Babys oder Kleinkindern übernachten kann. Die Väter sind wie alle anderen männlichen Teilnehmer in dem Schlafbereich der Männer untergebracht. Wer an dem Familienzimmer interessiert ist, muss eine E-Mail an familien@youthinmission.info schreiben.

Übernachtung und sanitäre Einrichtungen

All participants who have registered as overnight guests sleep in designated areas in different halls. Please bring your own sleeping bag and mat.
Toilets and sinks are available as well as large rooms with showers.
