Advance Registration Cost:

Advance Registration:

Each student under the age of 18 must submit a registration form with Parental Signature giving permission for you to attend. You must do this even if you register on-line or call our office to register. The ways you can register for the Advance:

Alpine Ministries Option:

As a youth leader, you now have the opportunity to combine “summer camp” in the same week with the Student Advance. By combining the camp experience and the Advance churches can save travel expenses, time and alleviate the need for securing extra leaders for two separate trips. Alpine Ministries offers tailor-made Adventures from one, two, or even three days in length. Activities include whitewater rafting, caving, rappelling, high ropes, paintball, hiking, and more. Groups choosing to come early, or stay later, can coordinate directly with Alpine Ministries for details. Their full-time staff is available to assist you and they are located on the same campus as the Bible College. For more information call 800-806-2180 or click on option 3 below.

Cancellation Policy:

Canceled registrations are refundable (less a $20 processing fee) up to July 2, 2018. After that date, registrations (less a $20 processing fee) can be used by you or another person as a credit for any Advance within one year of this Advance.  After August 2, 2019 any remaining credit will be forfeited. You must call our office to notify us of any cancellation or substitution before the Advance.

MARTINSBURG WV: "Praise The Lord, one saved. Two in our group surrendered to preach, 5 surrendered their lives to the Lord, Amen." 

CARNEYS POINT NJ: We saw God answer prayer, convict of sin, bring assurance of salvation, renew and strengthen their resolve to live for Christ, stir their hearts to evangelize, get right with their parents (there were phone calls made to home about this), reevaluate their priorities (selfishness was seen as a sinful deterrent to be repented of and Christ to be pursued) all these things God dealt with us at this advance.

BLUE RIDGE VA: We had one get assurance of salvation... 4 surrendered to full-time Christian service in our group! Praise God for what He is doing! Just had an awesome testimony time too!

WESTIN WV: 2 called to preach one young lady surrendered to missions. Breakthroughs all the way through. Student-led fast tomorrow for God to save someone in service Sunday!

MOREHEAD CITY NC: Had one 17 year old young man who wanted to confirm his call to the ministry. Caroline had already surrendered but has renew excitement in that direction due to the LORD'S work in these services. We have had great prayer times.
