We are not providing onsite registration. Registration is online only. Please do not show up without registering.


Different from previous events, this year’s Alive Youth Rally is on Saturday only. If you are a youth group (no individual registrants) and are traveling far distances and want to wake up onsite, we will allow you to arrive on Friday night, no later than 11pm. An important point to consider is we are not bussing people to the YMCA for showers and there are no showers onsite. Also, there will be a continental breakfast (pre-purchased) on Sabbath morning for those staying overnight. If you are wanting to spend the night on Saturday night too, we will allow that for those registered groups. There will be no breakfast on Sunday morning.

There will be a tent area on the field if you are wanting to bring a tent to sleep in. All tents must be supervised by a chaperone that you bring. Male and females are not allowed in the same tent unless you are a family or married.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to bring a group to stay overnight and you have both boys and girls, you are required to bring male and female chaperones to supervise your youth.

We have provided a list of hotels on our website that are close to the church in case you, your group or family wish to stay in one of them. There are no discounted rates available.

There will be options, during online registration, to purchase meals if you want us to serve you. This has to be selected and paid for during online registration via credit card or PayPal account. There will be NO ONSITE REGISTRATION and NO onsite payments made for food either.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are wanting to eat at Alive and have not purchased meals before arriving, you will have to bring your own food. You will not have access to the kitchen nor are you allowed to plug in crock pots or any other electrical cooking devices.

  • Saturday Cont’l Breakfast
  • Saturday Lunch: Vegetable Lasagna (Vegan option available), salad, garlic bread, dessert
  • Saturday Dinner: Haystacks, corn, yellow rice, dessert

Bring $12 if you plan on purchasing an additional shirt, did not purchase one here online, or are not one of the first 100 to register and attend and want a shirt. Either purchase one beforehand online or after sunset on Saturday night.

What To Bring

  • Your Bible.
  • Alive 2019 Activity/Emergency Contact Form – Fill out online or download it. (For youth under the age of 18, not supervised by an adult.)
  • Sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, change of clothes, personal care items (overnight groups only)
