Do College Differently

Encounter God. Make friends. Be forever changed.

April 6-8 • Rochester, NY

Online registration coming soon.



Join over 700 college students and young adults for a weekend of passionate worship, dynamic teaching and life-changing ministry! This high energy event is one of the largest of its kind in the Northeast, drawing students from dozens of universities and churches.
BASICcon is the national conference held by BASIC College Ministries. This event is held regularly each spring and fall in Rochester, NY. BASIC stands for “Brothers and Sisters in Christ.” BASIC College Ministries’ mission is to serve and equip local churches to help college students succeed in college and life. This is accomplished by resourcing them to start chapters that meet weekly on over 30 campuses across the Northeast.

So there I was, desperate and broken, about to attend BASIC for the first time. These people I had never met came around me and prayed for me like I was one of their own. I knew I had to come back.
