We do not provide onsite registration. Registration is online only. Please do not show up without registering or we will have to turn you away.

Since Alive’s inaugural youth rally in 2009, our purpose has been to help young people develop a bond between them and God that is unbreakable, and to help them realize that life is no life at all without Christ. We hope that you will join us for this life changing experience.

On Saturday, March 7, 2020 the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church will be holding its 12th annual Alive Youth Rally for young people ages 13+. The event will begin with onsite packet pick-up at 8 AM on March 7, 2020. Registration is online only and under the Event Info menu. We will be capping registration at 500 people. We will close registration at 500 or on March 3, whichever comes first. We cannot accept registrations after registration is closed.

This year we will be providing food for all registered attendees for free.

PLEASE NOTE: You can bring your own food if you do not prefer what we serve. However, you will not have access to the kitchen nor are you allowed to plug in crock pots or any other electrical cooking devices.

The first session will start at 10 AM Sabbath morning, and our last meeting will conclude Saturday night, which will be followed by an activity game that you will want to be a part of. You can sign up to be a part of the game when you arrive and an awesome grand prize will be awarded to the winner.

If you are able, we do suggest a donation of $5 per person to help us with expenses. You can donate via PayPal by clicking the Donate button on our website or bring it with you. The first 100 to register online and attend will receive a free Alive t-shirt upon arrival.

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 that there are no showers available. Also, there will be a continental breakfast 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. We do have plenty of camping space in the field if you would rather bring your tent. We also have provided a list of hotels close to the church on our website in case you and your group or family wish to stay in one of them.

We will have volunteers and sponsors at the event to help supervise, however we do ask that you bring your own chaperones with you, as we ask that no one under the age of 18 be unsupervised. Any individual registrant under the age of 18 must have their parent/guardian fill out the Alive 2020 Activity/Emergency Contact Form located on the Resources page. All registered groups need to provide their own chaperones.

(1) If you are planning to bring a group and stay overnight and you have both boys and girls, you are required to bring male and female chaperones to supervise your youth.
(2) 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.


Worship music is provided by Engage Ministries – A ministry team sponsored by the Enrollment Services Dept. at Southern Adventist University. Engage helps with Youth Rallies, church services, worship gatherings and other events, mostly throughout the Southeastern United States.
