Please note: Student registration is now closed. We are still in need of host homes and college leaders.
For one weekend in February, students from all over East Cobb come to Mt. Bethel for DNOW – Disciple Now weekend.
Throughout the weekend, we experience incredible worship, hear challenging messages, serve our community and have fun. Most importantly, students will have the chance to unpack what they’ve experienced with college leaders who have come to serve from universities throughout the Southeast. Our college leaders are madly in love with Jesus and want nothing more than to lead and serve our students! Groups of students and their college leaders will stay in host homes. Our hosts are fabulous church members who graciously open their houses to our students throughout the weekend.
If you would like to volunteer to serve as a host home or college leader, please follow the appropriate link below. Any questions should be directed to Patricia Clark.
Want to know more about being a host home? Click here for a video from one of our host home parents.
DNOW is Mt. Bethel Student Ministries’ annual in-house retreat and the biggest thing that we do all year. Come be a part of it, or follow us on social media!
