DNOW 2024

John Piper famously wrote, “Missions exist because worship doesn’t.” From the very beginning, God’s plan has been to fill the earth with people who love and worship Him. Now that Christ has come and made a way for us to be restored back to Him, He also calls us into His church to live on His mission. We now seek to make His name known “to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This year at DNOW, we will be looking at what this mission is and how God calls us to live it out. 
Our speaker this year will be Drew Taylor. While originally from Mississippi, he currently serves as the Assistant Pastor of Discipleship at First Baptist Church in Canyon, TX and has been there since 2016. He is married to his wife Lindsay and they have 4 children. While he has helped lead the college and discipleship ministry at his church for years, Drew also has a heart for global discipleship through missions. He and his wife have served as missionaries in Africa and Central Asia. Now, Drew and his church are actively partnering with missionaries all over the world to help see the gospel flourish and churches grow.

What Is DNOW?
“DNOW” stands for Discipleship Now. The goal of this event is to intentionally set aside a weekend for students and leaders to draw closer to Christ through the preaching of God’s Word, the singing of God’s Word, and Christian fellowship. We pray that this would be a time when students might be saved by the gospel, grow in their understanding of the gospel, and be challenged to live as Christ calls us to live as his disciples.
Who Can Attend?
This is for students in grades 6th-12th.
Where Do I Drop Off My Student?

What Are Host Homes?
The students from High Pointe will break into smaller groups throughout the weekend and spend the night in the homes of church members. These groups will consist of students of the same gender and two adult leaders. At the homes, the students will reflect on the main sessions and enjoy time together.
