About Disciple Now

Disciple Now Weekend is always an incredible time of building friendship and faith. Behind camp, it is one of the biggest programmed times of faith formation. This year’s theme is “Renew” and is based on Mark 12:30 where Jesus explains the greatest commandment: [highlight]“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”[/highlight] Renew is written to help students understand the importance of loving the Lord this way, and how they can do it in their everyday lives.

March 27-29th – Cost: $35
For: Current 7th – 12th Grade Students

What is Disciple Now?
Disciple Now is a weekend of Bible Study, Worship, hanging out, eating, and having fun. It will begin Friday evening and will end Sunday at noon.  There will be amazing music, messages, and time with friends.

What should I expect if I go to Disciple Now?
You can expect a lot of fun, but also intentional conversations about our spiritual lives.  We believe that God has created us for a relationship with Him and that every human being was created to know God.   Our goal is to create a place where all people can ask honest questions about God and how we can relate to Him.

Financial: Cost, and Deadlines

Where will I be staying?
You will be staying in homes of the members of Tabernacle Baptist Church.  The adults of the host home will be there as well as a bible study leader, normally a college student.  The week of Disciple Now you will receive a letter in the mail with the address and phone numbers of the home you will be staying.  I strongly encourage parents to contact the host home their students will be staying with.

Who are the speaker and band?
This year, one of Jeff’s good friends, Jared Hollier, will be speaking at Disciple Now. Jared has an amazing heart for God and a huge desire to preach the gospel.

Jared Billups will be leading worship. He was the Worship Pastor at First Baptist Irving, and currently is on staff as the worship pastor at Highland Baptist Church in Waco, TX. He led worship for our SYATP rally in September.

When do I need to show up and when do I go home?
The weekend will kick off Friday at 6:30 in the SHOP. We’ll hang out and get to know the leaders, and we’ll start eating at around 7:00. The weekend will conclude at the end of the 10:45 worship service. That will put us ending right around noon.

What if I need to be gone for part of the weekend?
We would like for everyone to be involved in the entire weekend, but that can’t always happen.  If you are going to miss a part of the weekend, please notify the host-home as well as Jeff.

What should I bring?
Everything that they would need for a weekend trip away from home.  They will also need a sleeping bag, pillow and such. It would be a good idea to plan to bring an air mattress. They should also bring their Bible and the expectation that they are going to have an awesome weekend.
