Where: Our home base is at St. Matthews UMC in Memphis, TN (1362 Prescott St. Memphis, TN 38111)
When: Monday, July 20 (approximately 12 p.m.) - Friday, July 24 (approximately 12 p.m.). If you're participated in Collide before, please note, there is no Pre-Immersion event this year.
Who: For youth (completed 6th-12th grade by summer 2020) and adults in your congregation! Please also see the Support Staff option below which can be great for college students (or adults of any age too!).
Cost: $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, but if you are unsure of how many ministry team spots to register for, please be conservative so we don't turn anyone away. Again, there are no refunds. Reserve a Ministry Team spot by January 17, 2020 for $200/team (First Payment). Space is limited, and ministry team registrations will close when we reach 12 teams.
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!
