What Is Pilgrimage?
Pilgrimage is a weekend event for UMYF and local church youth groups in which youth and adult advisors are challenged to a new or deeper faith in Jesus Christ. The content of the weekend will focus on evangelism, faith sharing and discipleship for youth and adult advisors to youth ministry in local churches. Pilgrimage is a time and place where faith and discipleship can be fun!
Where Will It Be Held?
The sessions of Pilgrimage will be held in the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC. The Crown Coliseum Complex is very accessible to Interstate 95 and Highway 301. Most lodging accommodations will be off Interstate 95 at exit 49. This area also provides restaurants and fast food places to eat. The mall and shopping area with lodging and eating options are also not far away.
Who Is It For?
Pilgrimage is a retreat type weekend for youth groups. Any middle high/senior high (grades 6-12) UMYF from a local church in the North Carolina Conference is invited to join the excitement. Since this event is for youth groups, each group must provide its own adult advisors. There should be at least 1 adult for every 7 youth in your group, and at least 2 adults with each group. The adults will be responsible for the guidance, conduct, and safety of the youth from their church. Each group is responsible for its own transportation to, from and during the weekend.
How Much Does It Cost?
The program cost for Pilgrimage is $15 per person - youth and adults. This covers participation in all sessions. The program cost does NOT include lodging, meals, or free time options on Saturday afternoon. There will be no pro-rating of cost for attending only a portion of the event. Groups must pre-register for the event with an estimated number attending. This number may be adjusted up or down upon check-in at the event.
