Imagine thousands of young adults from all over the world coming together to redefine church.
If you’re skeptical about church, you’re not wrong. When you think of church, what do you think of? Do you flashback to your parent’s church that’s outdated, judgmental, and boring? Do you still remember the taste of the stale shortbread cookies and powdered lemonade? Most of us have a tainted view of church, and it keeps us from knowing what real Church is all about.
We’ll state the obvious, there’s a lot of craziness happening in the world. In the midst of it all, we’ve seen a silver lining - the reality that church is not a building, it’s a group of people. With public gatherings being shut down, we’ve seen the Church still rise up through young adults living out their faith and being fully devoted followers of Jesus. We’ve witnessed that the church is not a place, it’s a lifestyle. It’s pretty obvious… church is back.
Join us September 5-7, 2020 at Watermark Community Church for Awaken Conference – a conference for young adults from The Porch. We’re continuing to redefine church… well sorta… we’re actually just going back to what the Church was always meant to be.
As a result of COVID-19, we changed dates and locations for AWAKEN 2020. If you registered for AWAKEN prior to April 10, 2020, there’s more info for you here.

If you are reading this, probably you. Ok, ok, we’ll be more specific, this conference is for young adults in the thick of trying to figure out life as an adult… a.k.a. how to live for Jesus and His church while balancing a full-time job and life after college. This conference is for the young adult wanting to know Jesus more, and know what the Church is supposed to be like. Sound like you? Then let’s go!
We got you. Watch here.
All your questions can be answered here.
Last year, hundreds of people came alone and left with new friends. There will be opportunities for people who come by themselves to connect with others. We promise you won’t need to eat your lunch alone in a bathroom stall.
