  • Please read our Rules and Regulations prior to registering. Be sure to note new additions to our cell phone and auditor policy. By registering, you agree to park your cell phone in the designated spot prior to entering the chapel and to only use your cell phone for essential calls and texts during lunch, dinner, and dessert.

Logistic Reminders:

  • If you are flying, Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is the only airport for Hillsborough church-arranged transportation. The airport is one hour away from the church. Please try to fly as a group with your local church members. This will greatly help the church members coordinate airport pick-ups and drop-offs
  • The earliest arrival date should be Thursday, July 18 and the latest departure date should be Monday, August 5. Please choose a flight that arrives by 9pm and preferably not during Sabbath services so that Hillsborough church can arrange for reasonable transportation. Arrivals or departures outside of the hours of 6:00am-11:00pm may require you to arrange your own airport transportation (Uber, Lyft, etc).
  • Post-NYTS is not planned by NYTS coordinators. Lodging and transportation for any activities will not be provided by the host church. If you need to arrive earlier or stay later, please arrange your own food and accommodations.
  • For international participants or any special circumstances, please email nytsadmin@tjc.org

    This NYTS we will be studying: Hosea, Ecclesiastes, Jeremiah, 1 Corinthians, and a few chapters from the gospel books (listed on the schedule). Please prepare yourself by reading the listed books. 

    If you are a 4th year student, please prepare a 20 minute sermon outline and email it to Pastor Enoch Hou (
    houtsengmf@gmail.com) by July 9 for review. If you attended NYTS before 2013, you can graduate on your 3rd year.

    For those who would like to bring a laptop, you will be given the option to get an electronic version of all the lecture notes in PDF form, instead of a printed binder. This option will help us to reduce environmental waste and conserve the paper used for printing. Please select this option when you register.

    If you have any questions, feel free to email the NYTS coordinators at nytsadmin@tjc.org. Please keep this event in your prayers every day. May the Lord bless us with a fruitful spiritual feast.
