All young adults ages 18–30 and those in their last year of seminary within a 1.5-hour radius of the Conference Center are encouraged to participate. (Learn how you can watch online.)

Due to limited parking and accessibility concerns related to the construction on and around Temple Square, young adults are encouraged to carpool and mass transit.

The broadcast begins at 6 p.m. in the Conference Center and seating will open at 4:30 p.m. Tickets will be distributed on the Conference Center plaza on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating arrangements will be made inside the Conference Center. Overflow seating will also be available in the Little Theater, Tabernacle, Assembly Hall, and at the Social Hall Avenue Meetinghouse at 95th South and State Street. 

After the broadcast, young adults are welcome to explore the Conference Center, including the roof, which offers the best view of the sunset and the construction site of the ongoing renovation of the Salt Lake Temple.

Young adults can enjoy free cookies and bottled water available in various locations after the devotional.

Available Activities

Participants are invited to share their experiences using #JesusChrist, #PresNelson, and #WWDevo. Young Adults in other areas of the Church are encouraged to gather locally for the broadcast and to share experiences as well.
