Fun in the Son, Teens Encounter Christ
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" ~ Phillipians 4:13

Welcome to Fun in the Son Teens Encounter Christ!

TEC is a highly structured, well-thought-out method of renewing the faith of individuals, the congregations from which they come, and the environments in which they live. This renewal movement is presented as a united effort of laypersons and clergy to aid congregations in the development of young Christian leaders.

To learn more about what TEC is, please visit the 'What is TEC?' section.

Want to make a TEC weekend?

That's great! Here are a few things you need to know:

The next weekend will be from Sep 5, 2020 to Sep 7, 2020 at Luther Springs. The lay directors for the weekend will be Kira Luther and Melanie Peters.

Fun in the Son TEC retreats are held once a year over Labor Day weekend at Luther Springs in Hawthorne, FL. If you can't make the next weekend, keep in mind that it's an annual event, and hopfully you'll be able to attend the next one. For a list of previous and immediately upcoming weekends, please see our weekends at a glance list.

Remember, TEC is not just for teens. We need adults to participate and facilitate — Every year we have a few adults that attend the weekend. If you are a pastor or youth coordinator and want to know more about TEC first hand, we encourage you to join us for a weekend.

There are several ways to begin the application process:

Looking for other ways to help?

If you're looking for ways to support TEC, but haven't made a weekend yourself, we have other ways that you can become involved. One such way to be involved is to sponsor a youth by providing a scholarship for the weekend, covering their camp expenses so that they can experience what TEC has to offer. We offer several scholarships every Weekend, and hope to continue to do so.
