Every day, you are faced with endless decisions.
Most of them are relatively small—what will you have for lunch? Will you study first-thing after school, or will you spend time with friends? What movie will you watch over the weekend?
However, some decisions have the potential to change the course of your life. Should you go to college? Where should you go, and what should you study? Where do you go for counsel? What do you do when you’re faced with temptation?
In the daily flood of questions and decisions, how do we determine the right choices? During the 2019 Fall ENCOUNTER Student Conference, we will walk through the 40-Minute study How to Make Choices You Won’t Regret. Through this study, you and your peers will learn how to make choices that honor God and bring peace to your heart and mind, no matter the circumstances.
The ENCOUNTER conference is centered on Scripture and oriented towards small groups, allowing students to build community while engaging with God’s Word. This event is designed for students ages 12-18 (6th-12th grades) and adult leaders. To attend, students must be 12 years old by the date of the conference. An adult leader is responsible for the students they bring to the event—examples of leaders include pastors, parents, family friends, or youth volunteers. The group ratio requirement is 3-6 students per 1 leader.
As a student, you may not be able to come with a group. Don’t worry—you can still attend! Individuals coming to the conference are placed in existing small groups led by our Transform volunteers, so you will still have the same experience as other students.
As an adult leader, we will equip you to disciple your students during the conference. Prior to the event, we will send you the 40-Minute study and an optional training video. During the registration and final small group time, we will provide training on how to lead the material throughout the weekend and when you return home.
Ticket prices are the same for students and adults, and each ticket includes a study book and meals. On-campus housing is also available for a separate fee (see the HOUSING OPTIONS tab).
* Early-bird Ticket—$99 (through September 30, 2019)
* Full-price Ticket— $120 (October 1, 2019 - October 28, 2019)
[Registration closes Monday, October 28 @ 11:59pm EST or when the last ticket is sold—purchase your ticket today to secure your spot!]
How to Register
To register your group, you will need the last name of the adult leader or the name of the church group.
Students seeking to register separately from the group will also need to provide the group name/last name of the group leader to ensure proper small group placement.
If you are not coming with a group, you will be placed in a small group led by a Transform volunteer. Individuals MUST designate “individual” as the group name during the registration process.
To quickly register a group, please contact our Student Events Registrar at 1-800-763-8280—we are more than happy to assist you!
