Collide Weekend

January 17th & 18th

A local student conference for students no matter denomination to collide under one roof, to worship the one true God together.


What will I experience at Collide 2020?: Throughout the weekend we will host 3 sessions with live worship and speakers. Following each session we will spend quality time in StudentGroups to discuss and learn how to apply what you just learned.

What is Collide Student Conference?: COLLIDE is a local church student conference that is founded on the belief that we were created to collide with one another in our faith! We want to see this generation empowered by Jesus, equipped to make a difference, and living out their faith every day! Over 10 years ago God laid in on a local student pastor’s heart to bring local churches together to host a student conference. The vision for the weekend would simply be this: worship, prayer, and focused teaching on one thing- this generation putting their colliding with Jesus in a real way. COLLIDE is now in its eleventh year as a conference and God is doing amazing things! It is our prayer that students and youth leaders leave the conference refreshed, equipped, and inspired to live their lives colliding with Jesus at home, in the local church, in their cities, and around the world.

Who can attend Collide?: COLLIDE designed for 6th-8th grade and 9th-12th grade students. Adult student ministry leaders are encouraged to attend with the students they lead.

When does the event end and begin?: Although check-in will tentatively begin on Friday, January 17th, 2020 at 5:30 p.m., the first session of the conference will not take place until 7:30 p.m. We open check-in early to help accommodate those that are traveling with multiple students and have enough time to drop each student off individually. The conference will conclude on Sunday, January 19th at 10:00 a.m.

What is the cost of Collide?: $20.00 for registration prior to December 18th.

What does the cost of Collide cover?: All meals, transportation, host homes, and a shirt from the weekend.

How do I register?: All registration for students is completed and paid through our Student Minister, Kalon Collins. Your spot for Collide is not guaranteed until your total cost is paid for.

During Collide Weekend we will need places for students and their leaders to retreat to after an exciting and life changing day, and hold small groups. Groups are the backbone of the church and are vital to seeing students lives changed. Are you interested in hosting a group of 10-12 students in your home for Collide Weekend?
We will also need meals for Collide weekend. Are you interested in providing a meal for a student host home?

Grades: 6th grade – 12th grade
