Disciple Now is a weekend Youth discipleship event filled with Bible Study, fellowship, corporate worship, & tons of fun & memories. Youth are divided by grade & gender into host homes where they will stay Friday & Saturday nights. We come together as a group for worship with an awesome praise band and speaker on Friday night, Saturday morning and night, & Sunday AM.
Our theme this year is “ALL”. The Hebrew word seen in the logo is pronounced like our word “coal” and means “ALL”. This word is found over and over again in Psalm 103 and gives us an incredible picture of the nature of our great God, ourselves, & His work in our lives.
Students should drop off their luggage at their host home between 5:00 and 7:00 PM on Friday Jan 17.
Check In will be Friday night, January 17th, at 7:00 PM in the Scott St Lobby.
Our first session will begin at 7:30 PM in the Youth Center. .
The weekend will conclude after the 11 AM service on Sunday, January 19th.
Jeremy Berger will be delivering our messages. Jeremy served for years as Youth Pastor at the Summit Church in Raleigh, NC where JD Greer is Pastor. He is now the Family Pastor, leading all ages of kids & their parents (basically he’s the children’s and youth minister’s boss). He also travels regularly to camps and events to preach God’s Word.
The Zach Brown Band will be leading worship for us this year. Zach is the worship leader at Sugar Hill Baptist in Atlanta and travels regularly to camps and events like ours. Zach and the band will lead us in an incredible weekend of worship!

NO (WITH EXCEPTIONS). We will have sufficient transportation to carry each student. We limit student driving throughout DNOW weekend for liability reasons.
The only exceptions:
a) is if a parent lets us know they must have their car for an outside event (See Time Away Form). In this case, that student can drive from the Church to the Host home Friday night and from the home to the church on Sunday morning. During this trip they cannot drive another student.
b) a student has to drive themself to the church but parents do not want them to leave their car there through the weekend. In this case, that student can drive their care alone to the host home where it should stay until Sunday when they drive it back to church.
If your child must leave for a previously schedule engagement they can’t get out of….there is an online “Time Away Form” at the top of this page. Click on the link and fill out/submit the form. We encourage students to enjoy the entire weekend, but we understand that this can’t always be the case. Just have them back in a timely manner if possible. STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO FILL OUT THIS FORM. WE WILL CONFIRM ANY TIME AWAY REQUESTS WITH PARENTS.
The purpose of Disciple Now is to create an opportunity to see God clearly and grow deeper in faith. There are always opportunities to distract from that purpose. The following rules are in place to limit distractions and create an environment where the most growth & the most fun can happen simultaneously. Failure to follow these rules may result in an end to the student’s DNOW experience.
