The Prize

The goal of this week is to encourage young people to live their lives according to God’s Word so that they can hear those coveted words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” At this year’s conference, we hope to inspire the next generation of Christian servants to “run well,” all while having a blast during the action-packed services.

Occupancy per room is based on 4, depending on room type. For example, if the number of adult ladies and teenage girls in your group is 12, you should book 3 rooms. If the number were 13, the number would be rounded up.
