What is DNow?

Disciple Now is a weekend-long worship experience unlike anything else we do. This is THE EVENT of the year for our ministry!

What are we going to do?
We’ll spend time together worshiping our awe-inspiring God, learning how God works in the Bible so we can apply it to our lives, meeting new friends and opening up in honest ways about our relationships with Jesus, serving our community in outreach and having fun together.

2020 Speaker

Jimmy Manis will be our DNow speaker! He is the Family & Missions Pastor at Fairview Church in Maryville and has an incredible passion for discipling others. Prepare to be blessed!

2020 Musician

Matt Dixon & Band will be our guest musicians! Matt is the Student Pastor at Dotson Memorial Baptist Church in Maryville and has a beautiful heart for worship. He and his band also lead the contemporary worship service at Dotson Memorial. Come ready to worship!

Where is it?
DNow is an in-town retreat, meaning we meet for large group sessions at Calvary then divide up into co-ed groups of 8-10 and spend Friday and Saturday night in Calvary host homes.  It has the feeling of an out-of-town retreat with the flexibility of being close to your apartment/dorm/house and school/work. If you are worried about previous commitments that would keep you from coming, please know that you can come and go as you need to - we’ve even scheduled free time on Saturday for that reason (see detailed schedule below).

How much does it cost?
Cost is $30, which includes a shirt, lodging, snacks, meals, and a great time! You can pay when you show up, but SIGN UP TODAY!

What to bring:

  • Bible + pen/pencil
  • Sleeping bag (something to sleep on) and pillow - if needed, UT students can rent a sleeping bag from the UT Rec Department for a nominal fee.
  • Toiletries + towels, washcloths, etc.
