Register for Charge

The 2017 Charge is SOLD OUT!

We had no idea when we launched this event that the response would be so fantastic! We have reached the capacity of the ballroom, we have sold out our room block at Great Wolf Lodge, and we are overflowing to the Fairfield Inn & Suites. It’s a great problem to have and we’re excited for the energy of such a large gathering of middle school youth & adult leaders! We are super pumped to deliver an experience of faith formation, service, leadership and community to the middle school audience in our inaugural year of Charge!

Groups currently registered may still login and edit their registrations as necessary but we are no longer taking new groups for this event. Dates & speaker information for the 2018 Charge will be released at the conclusion of this year’s event.

Our room block at Great Wolf Lodge has sold out. Overflow housing is located at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Traverse City (1 mile away from GWL). Rooms are $99 per night and house 4 people to a room. The Fairfield also offers free breakfast (GWL does not). Water park passes will still be made available to participants of Charge staying at the Fairfield. Passes will be distributed at check-in with Living Water Ministries on the 24th. When booking a room at the Fairfield, please tell them you are with Living Water Ministries.
