MAIN SESSIONS

At Surge Weekend, you will have the opportunity to participate in powerful worship sessions with hundreds of other students in the Worship Center at First Orlando John Young Campus. During each session you will not only experience high-energy music by FRVR Free, but you will also be inspired by Biblical messages from special guest speakers Marquise Cox and Ryan McDermott. Saturday’s session includes a concert featuring rapper KB.

Small Group Time

Groups at Surge Weekend are age- and gender-specific, and designed to connect and engage students in life-giving friendships. Each small group stays overnight in a background checked Host Home with two or more trained Adult Leaders. Leaders help facilitate small group conversations and provide the opportunity for the bigger main sessions to become small and more personal.
