Teens Encounter Christ

Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) is an opportunity for a special time in a young person's life. At TEC, you can experience that you are not alone at the in-between time of moving into adult life. In the three-day weekend, you experience being part of a vibrant, loving, and supportive faith community in which the friendship of Jesus Christ becomes a real possibility that makes sense.

TEC is Very Inspiring

Team members of adults and youth from various walks of life entrust to the participants some of the struggles, joys, and feelings they have experienced in their own lives. TEC provides a space to reflect upon one's own ideals, hopes, dreams, and problems to discover a God that one can believe in, a Christ you can encounter as risen and alive in your midst.
