This year the conference is a little longer than usual. We’ll begin on Sunday afternoon and end on Wednesday at noon. 

The dress code is business casual. Feel free to wear jeans if you want. We do have an awards banquet on the very last evening that is slightly more formal, but we want you to be comfortable.

Nope! While the event is hosted by Adult & Teen Challenge, it is open to anyone who wants to learn more about faith-based addiction recovery. We welcome similar ministries, pastors, counselors, and laypeople who want to do more to help hurting people. 

Absolutely! Come ready to connect! We encourage you to take this opportunity to build relationships with other ATC colleagues—bring your business cards! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet others who you can continue to learn and connect with after this event.

For ATC staff members, we will hold a Vision Casting & Awards Dinner on Tuesday, July 21 at 5pm. We are planning some exciting giveaways for this event!

  • Make sure to accurately list your years of full-time ATC service when you register, so we can honor you appropriately. We cannot honor years of service we don’t know about.
  • Also, please let us know if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions when you register so we can ensure the hotel accommodates those needs.  You’ll just need to notify your server at those meals, so they know where to locate you.

This year we are hosting our first every kids conference! Think childcare, elevated. For those interested in registering kids for our ATC Kid’s Conference, click here. This registration needs to be completed by the parent or guardian of the children.  This is going to be a time of valuable ministry for children 0 – 17 years old. Cost is $100 for one child or $50/child for 2+ children. (Registration is only available to children of Adult & Teen Challenge staff members.)

We have lots of different sponsorship options! Click here for more sponsorship information.
