Sign Your Group Up Today


Encouraging each other through affirmation is crucial to the growing process of a group.  When a youth’s peers compliment them, they feel more confident in their self in relation to the group and can share deeper feelings.  When friends tell a peer that they appreciate them, they realize that they are worthy of love and praise.


Worship describes those times we gather deliberately seeking to encounter God in Christ. God uses worship to transform lives, heal wounded souls, renew hope, shape decisions, provoke change, inspire compassion, and bind people to one another.

Veritas is the premier event for ACCYM. Each year, more than 1,400 youth and youth leaders from across the Arkansas Conference come together to celebrate what it means to live a connected Christian life. Nationally-known speakers and musicians headline this amazing experience, where young people will learn to encounter the Lord in new and deeper ways.

But what does it mean to worship? Worship describes those times when we gather deliberately and seek to encounter God in Christ. God uses worship to transform lives, heal wounded souls, renew hope, shape decisions, provoke change, inspire compassion, and bind people to one another. The word passionate expresses an intense desire, an ardent spirit, strong feelings, and the sense of heightened importance. Veritas is where we practice Passionate Worship.

This Years Line Up

Tim Palmer

Veritas Speaker

The son of missionaries who spent his earliest years living in the West Bank and on the island of Cyprus, Timothy Palmer is a singer/songwriter, poet, and speaker who currently lives in Abilene, TX with his wife, Erin, and their three children, Aubrey, Elijah, and Quinn. Tim is a conference favorite and always brings a new perspective to God’s word.


Veritas Worship Band

Our decision to worship isn’t rooted in our circumstances or our emotions, our gifts or our talents. We worship, not because of how we feel or what we’re going through; we worship because of who God is. He has proven faithful time and time again, and so we continually chose to seek Him—in joy and in pain—in every season. This truth is the guiding vision behind California-based band For All Seasons. For All Seasons desires to cultivate an atmosphere of hope through their new project Clarity, no matter what season of life listeners may find themselves enduring.

Taylor Mason

Special Guest

There is no way to describe what he does because combining ventriloquism, music, and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed. Does it sound old school? Only if music, laughter and the shared experience of sheer joy and excitement are out-of-date. For Taylor Mason, these are calling cards as a comedian, and the pillars on which he has built an outstanding, consistent and truly American career as an entertainer.

Romans 12:2
