Or call us at 615-599-5595


We come to the Edge Conference each year because it is a life changing weekend for those that attend and they are fed the Word of God and it is not watered down. It’s like the Word of God says in Proverbs “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it”. Our youth ask me each year to come back.

— Michael, Student Pastor

A Note from Craig

I started The EDGE about 20 years ago to provide an affordable, high-quality worship and discipleship weekend for students and youth leaders. I would love to give you a rundown of the conference—just call me at 615-599-5595 and let's chat.

Now, you might be wondering: What makes this conference unique?

Easy! Here are my top 5 reasons you'd want to bring your group:

1. Most importantly, we're dedicated to discipleship.

Two times during the weekend your students participate in smaller group Bible studies to go deeper into the Word. Plus, our speakers don't water down the gospel. They speak truth from the Bible in a way that engages students to deepen their relationship with Christ. 

2. We train your leaders.

It's not just for students. Your leaders (volunteers and staff) will get in-depth, practical training to reach and disciple today's generation of students. 

3. It's just big enough.

We value both intimacy and quality. The conference is big enough to offer top-notch speakers, musicians, artists, and staffers, but they all still want to connect with your students personally. It feels like family here—which is why many groups come back year after year!

4. You can park your vans for the weekend.

At most conferences, you have to pile everyone into the van and drive back and forth multiple times throughout the weekend. Not so with this one. Everyone stays right next to the conference activities.

5. No hassle whatsoever.

We work out the logistics so you can focus on your students. When you arrive, you're all already checked into your hotel, Bible studies are counted out, and everything's scheduled. Just let us know you're here and enjoy the weekend.

That's it! The conference happens each year in Ridgecrest, NC over MLK weekend in mid-January. I'd love to have you join us at this winter's event!

Again, if you want to ask any questions, just call me directly at 615-599-5595.

I have never been to a conference where the leaders cared so much about the pastors, leaders, and students. From the people opening up the doors, to the band, or even the entertainment acts, they are leading bible studies and hanging around to interact with people throughout the weekend. I also have never been to a conference that seeks to challenge the leaders just as much as the students. It is the conference for the ENTIRE student ministry!

— Tanner, Student Pastor
