“DNOW” is short for “Disciple Now”. “Disciple Now” is an event that has been a staple of student ministry all over the country for many years. It focuses on a few key elements. Discipleship is obviously the focus. It’s like an out-of-town retreat, except it stays local. Rather than hotels, students stay together in “host homes” with a college student/young adult as their group leader. They take part in small group Bible studies together throughout the weekend. In addition to the host home experience, a typical DNOW also includes worship services and a keynote speaker. For the past 10 years, the youth ministers of Rome & Floyd Co. have collaborated to create a collective DNOW event that unites all our groups, yet creates individual community within individual churches. It’s come to be known as “COLLIDE.”
This year’s COLLIDE will come together at West Rome Baptist Church. There, our students will be a part of approx. 500+ students from all over Rome coming together. This year, there will be a Wednesday night kick-off (February 19th) in place of normally scheduled Wednesday night activities. This will be an opportunity for the students to gather prior to the weekend to prepare their hearts for worship and as we pray for Collide Weekend!
