What Is TEC?
Teens Encounter Christ
TEC (Teens Encounter Christ) is an opportunity for a special time in a young person's life. At TEC you can experience that you are not alone at the in between time of moving into adult life. In the three day weekend of TEC, you can experience being part of a vibrant, loving, and supportive faith community in which the friendship of Jesus Christ becomes a real possibility that makes sense.
TEC is very human. Team members of adults and youth from various walks of life entrust to the participants some of the struggles, joys, and feelings they have experienced in their own lives. TEC provides a space to reflect upon one's own ideals, hopes, dreams, and problems; to discover a God that you can believe in . . . a Christ you can encouter as risen and alive in your midst.
