WHAT IS WKND?

 

We believe that a healthy spiritual life is the most important thing for a teenager’s long term success.

We recognize that there are a lot of barriers that prevent a teenager’s ability to have a high quality spiritual life. Self-doubt, regrets, identity questions, hidden pain, fear, depression - all of these can be crippling forces in their young lives. When these barriers are left intact, they stunt a student’s ability to grow into a spiritually healthy and stable adult.

In order to break free from these deep-rooted issues, there needs to be an encounter with the life changing power of Jesus Christ.

WKND is that encounter.

WKND is a three day event that takes place from Friday March 1st until the morning of Sunday March 3rd. It is specifically designed to help 6th-12th graders experience a new dynamic in their walk with God while breaking free from the things that are holding them back from succeeding in life. We do this by coupling together meaningful interactions with small group leaders and peers, and engaging in several worship services.

Through discipling students deeply, and having fun together we believe that these harmful barriers are gradually replaced with God’s joy and peace.

We can’t wait to see you there.

    • Since so much will be happening during the 3 days of WKND , we encourage all students to make being at WKND for its entirety the highest priority. However, if a student needs to leave for a prior obligation, they will be permitted to leave and return (PLEASE INDICATE THE NEED TO LEAVE WHEN YOU REGISTER). Students under 18 must have an adult sign them out and back in.
