Youth D-Now Registration
“D-Now” stands for Disciple Now. In its simplest form, a Disciple Now is a weekend retreat for a youth group packed with an incredible worship team and a special speaker. This year, we will have two options: conference only (for students not spending the night at host homes) and full weekend. Students will spend Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning in host homes, while building community and diving deeper in small groups, culminating together at the 11:00 am service on Sunday, March 5 at First Baptist Church of Universal City.

WHAT IS THE THEME FOR D-NOW?
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8–9Left to ourselves, we develop our own rules for navigating our lives. We may not write them down or even be aware that we have them. But it’s human nature. As we go through life, interacting with the world around us, we craft pathways for getting ahead. We are constantly reinventing ourselves to maintain our image. We have expectations about how we see others and how they see us. The places we go. The people we’re friends with. The people we’re NOT friends with . . . If we’re honest, we have certain expectations for how the world works. But what if we’re wrong? The simple truth of how God’s Kingdom works is that God dramatically upends our expectations. He turns the wisdom of the world on its head. We see this over and over again in Scripture. We learn that only in our weakness are we truly strong. We learn that real freedom comes from embracing God’s rules. We learn that death can mean life. And we learn that living a life of influence can be achieved through a quiet life and not a loud one.
