THE DETAILS

What Regeneration is all about.

What is Regeneration 2017?

Regeneration is the only Salvation Army conference that is specifically made for young adults in the Central Territory. It is an experience made just for you. You won’t want to miss it! Registration ends on Friday, February 1st, 2017.

How old should I be?

Regeneration is a conference for young adults. You must be between the ages of 18-29 (by 2/17/2017) to attend. There is one exception… If you are 30 or older and are active in young adult ministry on the local Corps or Divisional level you are now welcome to attend. (You will need to describe your involvement on the registration form).

When is Regeneration 2017?

Regeneration will be held the weekend of February 17-19th. This is President’s/Valentine’s Day weekend, so love will be in the air and many of you may have the following Monday off of school or work.

How much will it Cost?

Only $50. Only $50? Yes, only $50. That’s a real sweet deal, considering it includes: all housing, meals, fun, electricity, water, heat, swag, places to sit or stand and interesting things to look at for the whole weekend.

What is the theme?

The theme of this event is “Reconcile” which will address how to be reconciled to both God and man. The hope would be to address spiritual, racial and relational reconciliation. We are all very excited about what the Lord will do at Regeneration 2017.

Can my spouse and/or child come?

Certainly! We love when families attend Regeneration. There will be housing for married couples and families with children. It’s ok if your spouse is over 29 years old, just as one of you is between the ages of 18-29. Children between the ages of 0-5 can come at the cost of $20 per child.
