Volunteering at DCYC

DCYC will take place on February 14-16, 2020 at the Frisco Convention Center in Frisco, TX. We have a great weekend planned, but in order to make sure the conference runs smoothly, the conference team needs the help of volunteers.

There are three types of volunteer categories: Group Chaperones, DCYC Leadeship Team, & Conference Team Volunteers. This section is specifically for Conference Team volunteers. Group chaperones should register with their group and we will contact leadership team volunteers directly.

We rely on the dedication and generosity of volunteers to make DCYC 2020 successful. Please prayerfully consider joining us to serve the young Church in Dallas that will gather for this life-changing weekend. You can find more information about the conference HERE.
