Take Hold of the Gift - Winter Break 2018

We hope you will make plans to join us January 5th and 6th 2018! Awake and Alive will host its first 2 day regional conference for 18-25 year olds and their leaders at Wisconsin Lutheran College.  Register now to join with others in your generation from around the country!

Regular registration is NOW through December 15th.  Prices go up again December 16th.  Group Discounts are available!

Who is invited?
If you are a college student, in the military or reserves, working a job, in the trades, married, single or living in mom and dad's basement...  if you are between the ages of 18-25, this conference is specifically built for this season of life.  AND, if you are a leader of college aged young people, this conference is for you too!

If I am a college Pastor, can I attend with my students or should I sign up as a volunteer?
Awake and Alive Winter Break Conference 2018 is designed for college students, high school seniors, and their leaders. If you are a college pastor, you and your students will benefit most from you participating in the event with them and we would encourage you to register as a leader.

Can High School students attend the Awake and Alive Winter Break Conference?
High school seniors are invited to participate and make an investment in the next steps of your faith life as you gather with people who are a bit older than you.  Juniors?  You get to come next year.

I'm over 25, how can I attend?
We can sometimes get stuck on the number 25 and we appreciate that there are some people outside this time of life and would like to attend.  Our focus for this conference is really this generation and time of life and those that are leading them.  If you would like to participate, please consider sharing your time as a volunteer serving this generation.  You can email Jill Dunbar for more information.
