What is DiscipleNow?
DiscipleNow is an awesome experience that takes place in the late winter or early spring. It is a combination of the best parts of youth camp, Refuge, and mission trips all rolled up into one amazing weekend of an intense encounter with God. Students get to study the word, worship, join in a service project, and have fellowship with one another over a weekend.
DiscipleNow will be January 12-14, 2024
The cost for DNow Weekend is $65 ($85 after November 19).
DiscipleNow Weekend 2024 will take place from 5:00 PM on Friday, January 12 to 12:30 PM on Sunday, January 14, 2024. If your student will need to miss any of this time, please fill out a DNow Time Away Form HERE.

Consider being a Host Home!
If you are interested in being a Host Home, please email Alyson Davidson ([email protected]).
- Host Homes play a vital role by providing a place for students to call “home” for the weekend and helping to create an environment for discipling students. You will receive a weekend schedule that thoroughly explains what happens at all times during Disciple Now. We believe teenagers need Christian adults in their lives! We hope you will see this weekend as not only an opportunity to share your home, but to share of your life as well.
- Weekend participants will be placed in small groups by age and gender. The size of your group will depend on the number of participants and host homes, but will typically be between 5 and 9 students. Students bring sleeping bags/rolls to sleep on the floor in a designated area determined by you. After you let us know that you are interested in hosting, our Student Ministry Staff will contact you to help determine what age, gender, and size of group will be a good fit for your home.
- One or two adult Bible study leaders for the weekend will be assigned to your house and will take the lead on helping the students at your house behave, have fun, stick to the weekend schedule, and experience the Lord together.
