About this event

Fire Up Conference is a discipleship weekend designed for students in grades 9-12 and their leaders.  It is held each February in Troy, IL (Troy United Methodist Church).

This amazing weekend conference has grown into a great combination of both conference and retreat, and is now celebrating it's 25th year! The weekend includes times of worship with the Havest Band, preaching with Bill Stanley, small groups, seminars, meals and activities!

Fire-Up is a a really affordable event for the students in your church (and all the friends they can invite) and our prayer is that students will encounter Christ and experience his grace in their lives.

Bill Stanley from Cocoa Beach, FL will be joining us as the speaker for the weekend. Harvest Worship Band will be leading music.

The registration fee covers the program, refreshments, lunch and dinner on Saturday and a free t-shirts for those registered by the early deadline (2/3/21).

LODGING POSSIBILITIES

There are four motels located one mile from the church on the same road:

-- Holiday inn Express (618) 667-2301

-- Best Western (618) 667-9200

-- Super Eight (618) 667-8888

-- Red Roof Inn (618) 667-2222

Other budget friendly options include connecting with another local church to set up the possiblity of sleeping in their facility. If you have friends or others in the area, that's always another great way to visit and keep the cost down.

One last option we have arranged during this pandemic year is to program out Fire-Up so that if a group chooses to attend on Saturday only (and skip the need for lodging) we're adjusting things so that Friday night is a stand-alone message and groups who will be with us from 9:30 am - 8:30 pm on Saturday wouldn't feel like they missed something. If that's something you group would be interested in, you still register and sign up the same way, but just arrive in Troy between 9:00 am - 9:30 am on Saturday, February 26th.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON BREAK

Following lunch on Saturday, we will have some time for groups to take a break. Your group may want to plan something OR you can take part in the Fire-Up free time activites. One local church is setting up a space for hot chocolate, coffee and board games and another church will be opening their gym. Groups will be responsible for their own transportation to these afternoon options. Of course, groups will be able to do what they would like around town during that time slot as well!

As a reminder, lunch and dinner is included in the regsitration fee and will be held at the conference!
