Teens Encounter Christ is a weekend experience in Christian living designed for youth, young adults, and adults. Participants spend time listen-ing, laughing, singing, reflecting, & discussing things about themselves, others & God. TEC is based on the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The weekend begins on Friday morning between 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. The TEC weekend ends on Sunday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. In order to best experience the weekend, all participants must plan on attending the entire weekend.
Participants must be at least a Junior in high school to make a TEC weekend. Adults interested in working with youth and young adults and youth ministers from parishes or schools are also invited to participate.
