Event Information

We do not provide onsite registration. Registration is online only. Please do not show up without registering or we will have to turn you away.

[Update: 1/24/2022] This year’s theme is “Scarred.” Our speaker is former professional wake skater, Matthew Manzari who will share his miraculous story of surviving 2 death defying accidents, one of which left much of his body scarred from electrocution. Matthew is a graduate of Southern Adventist University with a degree in Theology. Currently Matthew does motivational speaking in churches and venues all around the USA. When he is not traveling, he resides in Florida with his wife Bobbye Jean and 3 boys, where he continues to teach wake skating.

We are excited to once again partner with the talented Engage Ministries from Southern Adventist University and blessed to have them lead us in praise music.

This year will be the 14th year for the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church to host and sponsor the youth rally and it will be a live in-person event. There will be three sessions throughout the day, with 2 meals provided upon registration. Due to the pandemic, we are limiting the rally to the first 250 registrants.

The first 50 registrants will receive a FREE t-shirt and the next 50 registrants will receive a FREE Alive Youth Rally mask. Others will be available for purchase.

Youth Leaders can also register groups. There is limited overnight sleeping available for those traveling longer than 2 hours away. There is a FAQ page to help answer questions.

This year’s Alive Youth Rally is on Saturday only. If you are are traveling far distances and want to wake up onsite, we will allow you to arrive on Friday night, no later than 9pm, unless prior arrangements have been made with us. Please let us know. An important point to consider is that there are no showers onsite. There will be a continental breakfast on Sabbath morning only for those staying overnight. If you are wanting to spend the night on Saturday night too, we will allow that for those registered groups. There will be no breakfast on Sunday morning.

There will be a tent area on the field if you are wanting to bring a tent to sleep in. All tents must be supervised by a chaperone that you bring. Male and females are not allowed in the same tent unless you are a family or married.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to bring a group to stay overnight and you have both boys and girls, you are required to bring male and female chaperones to supervise your youth.

We have provided a list of hotels on our website that are close to the church in case you (on the left - desktop; scroll down - mobile), your group or family wish to stay in one of them. There are no discounted rates available.

This year we will be providing food for all registered attendees for free.

PLEASE NOTE: You can bring your own food if you do not prefer what we serve. However, you will not have access to the kitchen nor are you allowed to plug in crock pots or any other electrical appliances.
