One in Love (OIL) started in 1988 as a cozy retreat in Pennsylvania for a little group of college kids. Nearly three decades later, OIL is now a multiethnic conference that serves nearly a thousand college students and young adults from all over the nation. We come together as a diverse generation of Christ to become “one in love.”


The vision of OIL is to nurture personal and corporate spiritual renewal, strengthen local churches, and equip individuals for personal ministry. It also aims to build collaboration and networking amongst church leaders. Through OIL, we desire for attendees to return home with a fresh love for God and a compassionate heart for the world around them.


OIL 2016 will take place at the beautiful campus of Wheaton College (Holiday Inn & Suites Carol Stream for lodging), which is about 45 minutes from both O’Hare and Midway airports.  OIL is not a function of Wheaton College.
