February 2-4


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.

2018 Speaker

Dominique Lee will be our DNow speaker! We all fell in love with Dominique when he recently spoke at Calvary’s Missions Conference. He is the Lead Pastor at Hope Fellowship Church here in Knoxville. Prepare to be blessed!

2018 Musician

Matt Brock will be our guest musician! Matt formerly was our Catalyst Worship Leader and now serves on staff at Fellowship Bible Church in Franklin, Tennessee. A truly gifted musician with a heart for authentic 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.

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.
