What is Winterfest?

Winterfest is a weekend retreat in Gatlinburg, TN for middle and high school teens (primarily) from acappella Churches of Christ. The teachers aim to disciple and encourage teens in their walk with God through stories, drama, music, and Scripture. The acappella worship is upbeat and uplifting, and there are also performances by contemporary Christian artists and entertainers.


What's the theme this year?

The teachers, worship leaders, and entertainers have been asked to bring us closer to what God loves and Jesus died for--The Church. A fresh look at why "The Word of God Spread" in the book of Acts. Why did our early brothers and sisters in Christ, turn the world upside down? We can do the same today!
