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. Teenagers experience 12 hours 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, sex, friendships, social media, peer pressure, bullying, 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? We'll leave around 4pm on January 14th and return after lunch on January 17th, 2022.
What's the plan for 2022? We've got the campground at Southland Christian Camp reserved ready for us this year! We're hoping for our biggest Princess & Warrior Weekend ever! Back at the campground with great food, cabins, zip lines, human foosball, bon fires, and all that comes with Southland Christian Camp!Who is leading? Many of the same amazing leaders from years past 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 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! At 10:30am on Sunday morning, January 16th, we will have a parent session for any and all parents of teenagers involved in Princess & Warrior Weekend. 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!
How can I sign up? We'll post the sign-up link here very soon!
