The TEC retreat beings Saturday morning. Guests are asked to arrive between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. in order for the weekend to proceed as scheduled. The retreat is scheduled to end around 5 p.m. on Monday afternoon. Parents/Guardians will be notified if it will end early due to weather or any other issue.
Guests are asked to arrive and depart at the times indicated above. If that is going to be a problem, we would suggest attending another weekend so that you can fully experience the weekend and all of its activities.
TEC processes the applications as the weekend draws closer. You can assume that your application has been accepted and will be processed. If you have questions about your application, or would just feel better to confirm it, please email the webmaster at ObscureMyEmail and they can help you with confirming or discussing your questions.
TEC has created a packing list for you which can be found here. Other than that, just bring yourself and be open to experience the weekend.
TEC is an amazing experience that changes many lives. It is similar to seeing a good move and not wanting to spoil it for others. Your friends and family want you to experience the weekend and develop your own feelings about it, rather than spoiling it for you.
TEC is a life changing experience, but it is by no means a cult. Many people in the TEC community stay involved because of their wonderful experiences on the weekend. They have great excitement and devotion for the movement and sharing it with others, but it is not a cult, simply a Christ-filled experience!
TEC is designed around the Lutheran theology and beliefs; however, that does not mean you have to be Lutheran to attend the weekend. There are always non-Lutheran participants.
The reunion is an event, where the entire TEC community is invited to attend. This includes all of the people who have attended TEC weekends in the past. Reunions happen occasionally throughout the year to keep the TEC community close.
TEC is completely run by volunteers. The TEC experience is designed to grow and create teen Christian leaders; therefore, the weekends are run by teenagers, in addition to adult mentors.
