We will close registration at 500 or on March 5, whichever comes first. Consistently every year, we have had to stop accepting registrations several weeks prior to Alive so register your group early on. We cannot accept registrations after registration is closed and will have to turn people away who show up without registering.
Yes. We will make accommodations for only registered youth groups (not individuals) that are traveling from far away and would like to be onsite in the morning. We will provide a sleeping space for your group. Please let us know on the group registration form.
Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. No exceptions. If your 13th birthday is after the Alive weekend, you are allowed to attend, given that your birthday is within a month. Otherwise anyone under age 13 must be with an adult at ALL times.
Adults can come with their youth or children, but all have to register. This is a “youth rally” so the more adults that come, the less youth get to attend. If you are bringing a youth group, we recommend more youth than adults in your group. As stated above, the more adults that come, the less youth get to attend. We reserve the right to ask you to reduce the amount of adults in your group. It should never be more than 50/50.
Yes you can, but you have to register too. The best way to do this is to register as a group, since you will be chaperoning your child. However, if your child has already registered then go ahead and register too and send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are chaperoning your child and provide your child’s name.
We are not able to change the menu for your special dietary needs. Your best option is to bring your own food in a cooler. You will not have access to the kitchen nor are you allowed to plug in crock pots or any other electrical cooking devices.
The food we will serve will be vegetarian. We will have a vegan option for lunch on Saturday.
Remember that this is a youth rally geared towards high school youth. The environment does not support small children running around on their own. The content of the messages may not be suitable for younger audiences. Your small children must accompany you at ALL times. No exceptions.
The Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church is the host, programming and content creator, as well as the primary sponsor of this event. Additional support is greatly appreciated from Southern Adventist University (Engage Ministries) and the Carolina Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Only registered attendees can be at Alive and will have wristbands denoting their registration. Our registration is capped at the maximum allowable occupational limit for our facilities. For the safety and security of our participants, we ask that those not registered please refrain from attempting to enter the event. For those unable to register or be in attendance, live streaming will be available at: live.spartanburgsda.com.
