Veritas 2022

What is Veritas?

Veritas is the largest event of the ACCYM year with over 1,500 youth and adults in attendance. The event is hosted at the Embassy Suites Northwest Arkansas - Hotel, Spa & Convention Center in Rogers, AR. The event concentrates on offering an incredible worship experience with nationally renowned speakers, bands, and specialized artists. Between worship sessions, Veritas offers a variety of opportunities to connect in community with others through our Ministry Mart that is full of ministry opportunities for all and our Saturday options. Saturday options such as mission opportunities, a prayer room, learning workshops, and other activities with your local church group and visiting vendors are offered after the lunch break. Saturday options are not required attendance. You may also choose to use the afternoon to take your group to the many options that the Rogers area has to offer. You can find many of the area's offerings on this website. http://visitrogersarkansas.com

In addition, devotionals are provided to each church to be discussed each night after the last activity ends as a way to reflect on the day’s experiences together.
