What is it? Princess & Warrior Weekend is the BIGGEST event our youth group family participates in and it's INCREDIBLE! We take our big youth group family and separate them by age and gender into lots of small bible study groups led by absolutely amazing leaders. There's no featured speaker, no big name band, no special lighting, and nothing really flashy at all, but the genuine time spent together in God's Word is like nothing else! Teenagers experience 7 big sessions of Bible study honestly answering their real and difficult questions and have a chance to talk about tough issues they're going through. Teenagers LOVE it! They are more excited about this event than anything else we do!
This is a retreat where teenagers get Biblical answers for their honest questions about dating, friendships, social media, peer pressure, self image, absolute truth, doctrine, theology and much more. Princess & Warrior Weekend gets students involved in solid teaching and conversations with some of the absolute best leaders in the country who are passionate about teaching and showing teenagers what it means to be a real man or woman of God. We’ll also have a whole heap of fun as we compete to see which gender will reign supreme in the Competition for the Crown!
When is it? January 12-15, 2024Who is leading? Many of the same amazing leaders will be back to continue to impart their wisdom and challenge us through God's Word as you get real Biblical answers for questions you're asking! Our leaders are youth ministers, college ministers, and youth ministry veterans from Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, and they truly are amazing!
What's the cost? $195 gets you 4 days of awesome! This covers transportation, food, leaders, lodging, activities, swag, and everything! We'd also love to help out financially if needed - just let us know! There's a $10 sibling discount too!
What if I have a conflict? We have teenagers with all kinds of commitments, but we don't want anyone to miss the whole 4 days just because of one event! You can fill out a Time Away Card and return that to the church office to let us know to expect you to come late or be away for a portion of the weekend.
Here's how parents are included! On Sunday morning, January 14th, we will have a parent session during the 10:30am Sunday School hour for any and all parents of teenagers involved in Princess & Warrior Weekend. This will take place in the Gathering. John is partnering with parents to share about what students are learning, Scripture references being used to answer the difficult questions of the weekend, and a challenge for parents to continue tackling tough topics as they disciple their teenagers. Come be encouraged and maybe even win a fantastic door prize!
