The full schedule will be available closer to Uplift. Below are some important times to consider.

Drop-off: All students will need to register upon arrival. Registration begins at 2:00 pm in the lobby of the Benson Auditorium. For groups, only the group leader needs to come to the lobby. For individual campers, please come with whoever is dropping you off. After your students are registered in the lobby, you may take them to their dorms to checkin with the dorm manager and receive their key. At that time, you may leave them. Dinner will be served starting at 4:30, and the evening activities usually start around 6:30.

Pick-up: Campers may be picked up between 7 and 9 am on Thursday, and breakfast is served in the cafeteria until 9. They will be picked up at their dorm. Their counselor will go through their room and be sure there was no damage. They will then turn their key in and be free to go with either their group leader or whomever is picking them up. Lost and found items are left in the Benson lobby.

Confirmed Speakers:

For Uplift 2014, the schedule will be a little different. We are returning to a format we’ve used in the past and are really excited about the possibilities.

Instead of having a different speaker every night, who then teaches the morning class (Group Uplift) the next day, there will only be two speakers for each week: one nighttime presenter and one morning presenter. That way, the speakers will be able to fully expound and build on themes and ideas throughout the week.

Session 1:

  • Night: Don McLaughlin
  • Group Uplift: Dustin Bartee

Session 2:

  • Night: Josh Ross
  • Group Uplift: Steven Hovater

Session 3:

  • Night: B Chris Simpson
  • Group Uplift: Pat Bills

Worship Leaders:

Session 1: Josh Kasinger
Session 2: Chase Akins
Session 3: Brandon Tittle


Drama is back again! Marcus Neely is writing and directing.
