Information from IYF:
What is IYF? International Youth Forum is held at the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri, USA. Its purpose is to provide a meaningful Temple experience including worship, spiritual education, small-group experiences, plus an opportunity to engage with people from other cultures.
Who can attend IYF? IYF is for youth who have completed the ninth through 12th grades and adult leaders registered as youth workers.
What to expect, what to bring? The IYF experience will include worship, small groups, a new element called International Games, and a campfire. The weather in Missouri is usually hot and humid in July — appropriate dress is important. The majority of campers also will attend Spectacular, so pack the things needed for both IYF and Spectacular.

Information for our delegation:
Our bus will leave from Oklahoma City - Heartland Congregation at 8:00 am on Wednesday, drive through Tulsa and pick up at 10:00am at Tulsa Central Congregation.
Our first night in Independence will be to focus on our delegation togetherness. Thursday and Friday programming will be held at the Temple. Saturday morning the SPEC bus will pick up the delegation and bring the youth to SPEC - those not attending SPEC may ride the IYF bus back to OKC but must contact Shelby Moses.
