about awaken

Have you ever asked yourself… were we actually created for something bigger than ourselves? Why were we created at all? What if there’s more?

We believe your life exists for a purpose. To love God with your whole heart, undivided. This Labor Day weekend join thousands of young adults from across the world as we come together unified under one name – the name of Jesus. Together at Awaken Conference 2021, we will give Him our Undivided Hearts.

Maybe you’re wondering, what will Awaken really be like? Imagine The Porch… but turned up to 100. Low-key, we’re throwing the biggest party that Watermark has ever seen. And beyond the party, we’ll also equip you, encourage you, and give you the resources you need to live out the true mission of the Church as Jesus has always intended it. You’ll go home prepared to live this mission in your city, at your local church, and with your friends like you’ve always wanted to.

We can assure you that you don’t want to miss this conference for young adults hosted by The Porch at Watermark.

If you have questions, we’ve got you covered. See the FAQs below for more.

I registered for Awaken 2020, and I’m still in for Awaken 2021. What do I do?

You’re in the clear. Your registration has been automatically transferred to Awaken 2021, and we sent you an email to confirm this transfer. If you didn’t get the email, don’t sweat. Reach out to us at to let us know.

Can I get a refund?

Already busy over Labor Day weekend? In our opinion, you should reconsider your plans. But if you can't, your ticket can be refunded at 75% of your ticket price up until 60 days before the event (July 6, 2021) by reaching out to Heads up, tickets will no longer be refundable after July 6th, but they will remain transferrable.

Is my registration transferrable?

What health and safety precautions will be taken?

Hey, we don’t want the virus as much as you don’t want it. Watermark has already enhanced the frequency of our cleaning procedures, cleaning common areas, and continuing to use hospital-grade cleaning products. Our safety precautions will meet or exceed the government’s recommendations. Don’t you think you’ll wash your hands way more than you did before, even after this is all over? Forever changed.

What if you didn't answer my question?

We got you. Reach out to us at
