FIRE-UP SR. HIGH CONFERENCE
Fire-Up is a discipleship event for high school students hosted in Troy, IL. For 2024, the dates are February 23-25. The event will take place on Friday from 7:00 – 9:30 pm, Saturday from 9:30 am – 9:30 pm, and Sunday from 9:00 – 12:00.
Registration includes the program, meals, refreshments, and a t-shirt if registered before February 5.
HOW FIRE-UP WEEKEND WORKS
Most commonly, a local church student ministry group, led by a student ministry leader and or some adult volunteers, register for the event and attend together. Friday night opening worship and fellowship time will happen from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm. Saturday will be from 9:30 am until about 8:45 or 9:00 pm and Sunday will go from 9:30 am – 11:45 am. During this time, meals will be provided at the event and included in the registration fee. All programming will take place in the same building except for a couple of hours after lunch when groups, who will be responsible for their own transportation, will have an option to go take a break. Your group can do your own thing around town or you can take part in one of a handful of activities planned through Fire-Up.
Fire-Up concludes at 11:45 am on Sunday, but we know some groups need to leave on Saturday evening after closing worship. If you are a student in the Troy, IL area and would like to attend, you can join in with the student ministry from the host church for the event, including the afternoon activities.
When you register for the event, there is a basic checkbox to click as “permission” from your parent/guardian to attend. We’re counting on student ministry leaders to use their own permission forms as they would for any other trip. However, here is a Printable Release Form if you can use.
