Are you searching for more than a surface-level youth event? The STUDENT Advance is a WAKE-up call. It’s about getting our eyes wide-open to eternity! Wide-open to God’s grace! God’s mission! And Christ’s indwelling power! 


No roller-coasters and no frills! This is a hyper-discipleship weekend for students and student leaders.


So what happens at the Student Advance? Soul-searching preaching, heart-felt worship, directed praying, group time, and targeted breakout sessions for middle-schoolers, high-schoolers, college-age young people, and leaders.

We have an exciting lineup of engaging speakers throughout the Advance. You will be inspired to intensify your focus on Christ and to ignite a passion for Him.

Who Should Attend?

Middle and High School age
This event is for all teachable young people whether they attend Christian school, home school, or public school. Mature 12 year-olds may attend, preferably with at least one parent. Younger students without parents are required to have a designated overseer from their group for the entire Advance.

Any young person 18 and older can attend, whether they attend college or not. Far too many young people flounder, rather than pursue their God-given destiny. We divide the middle and high schoolers from the College-age during the breakout times and conduct separate sessions for them. It is absolutely crucial that young people discover their Assignment. We will focus on assisting these “soldiers” in discovering and fulfilling their mission.

Breakout Sessions

We will have separate breakout sessions for Middle School students, High School students, Collage-age students and leaders. Age-specific topics and hot-button issues will be addressed. 

What Should I Expect?

You should anticipate outstanding Bible preaching on relevant topics. Also, you will experience great fellowship in an inspirational atmosphere. Designated group and prayer times are scheduled as well.


Each group is required to bring their own leaders. At least one leader is required for every six students. Adults and parents are encouraged to attend!

Meals are served cafeteria style in the campus Dining Hall. Each person will be issued a wrist band. This wrist band must be presented in order to enter the dining hall.

Victory Reports

Our deep gratitude to the ministry of Prayer Advance! We received so much blessings from this event! Thank you again! To God be all the Glory!
– Elloid Gerona

Our teens gave testimonies last night… Many thought that the idol message really woke them up. Things they didn’t think were that big of a problem were becoming idols and consuming their lives when they didn’t do them. Plus some teens were searching for acceptance from others more than from God. I thought it was great!

Just wanted you to know one of our teens got saved last night. It was a great weekend.
