What to Expect

Mars Hill Acts 17 events are FREE and designed for youth ages 12+.  Each event includes Christian music concert with fun light show, dinner, games, youth group presentations, time of worship, and guest speaker all with a Biblical theme, emphasis on scripture, and focus on Jesus Christ.


A typical event schedule of activities can be found here.


Themes from previous events are here.


Doors open for registration 30 minutes before each event.   Youth are encouraged to arrive early for registration and avoid missing a part of the planned program.


Event light shows Include haze and strobing lights; not recommended for those prone to seizures.  Live music is at concert volume.  Ear plugs are provided as needed.



A safe and respectful atmosphere is important at each event so all may enjoy and be blessed.  Chaperones are encouraged to remain with their youth group.

Youth with any special needs or medical needs must have an appropriately trained adult chaperone.



The youth registration process collects emergency contact info, and the sign-in/sign-out procedures keep track of youth presence.  All youth must sign-in and sign-out; no coming and going freely. Teens younger than 18 must leave with an adult unless they arrived on their own means.

Volunteers in contact with youth undergo a background check.  Volunteers are identified with “Mars Hill Acts 17” badges.  During opening announcements, youth are instructed to be respectful and to seek an adult with an official badge if any issue.  All event activities are conducted in a common area where multiple adults are present and keeping eyes on facility entry/exit points.



Youth with food allergies should bring own food, as needed.   Youth with medication needs may only receive medication on the premises by parent or legal guardian.   Mars Hill Acts 17 volunteers will not administer medication to any youth.

Youth with any special needs or medical needs must have an appropriately trained adult chaperone.
