Required. It's in Memphis at St. Matthews UMC, approximately 10:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. You only need to attend 1 date, and you can choose which date. You must bring at least 1 adult and at least 1 youth per Ministry Team to Pre-Immersion (you can bring more). It does NOT cost extra. If we have enough CYMT Texas area churches wanting to participate, we will work to plan a central Pre-Immersion experience in Texas to help prepare you for your summer Collide immersion in Memphis (contact Lindsay if you have questions!).

Cost is $299 per participant, paid in installments by the Youth Minister (as outlined below)
Payments are non-refundable (unless you register and the week you request ends up being full, then your $200 payment will be refunded). This cost covers all meals, lodging, and activities while on Collide. This does not cover your travel meals or transportation expenses. There are opportunities for getting ice cream or other treats some evenings of Collide. If you have any questions as you budget for Collide, just contact Lindsay!
Collide Ministry Teams consist of exactly 2 adults, between 4 and 10 youth, and ONE vehicle. Churches may register for multiple Ministry Teams. Reserve a Ministry Team spot by January 15, 2019 for $200/team (First Payment). Space is limited, and ministry team registrations will close when we reach 12 teams per week.
You can pay online with credit card (via Pay Pal, even if you don't have a Pay Pal account) or via mailed check. You can also bring additional adult(s) as Support Staff for FREE. This is a great opportunity for a college student or other adult in your congregation who wants to come serve behind the scenes and maybe can't afford the $299 cost. Contact Lindsay if you have questions!
