Questions & Answers

Question: Am I able to get a refund on tickets that I will not use?
Answer:

No, we have a strict "No Refund" policy.  The reason for this is because the Youth Rally is not a budgeted event and relies solely on the registration income in order to provide you with the best event that we possibly can . . . please be careful not to order more tickets than you can use!

 

Question: Can I purchase a ticket just for the Blanca concert on Saturday evening?
Answer:

No.  The Youth Rally is a Safe Sanctuary event (Peninsula-Delaware Safe Sanctuaries Policy).  In order to stay compliant with this policy, you would be required to register for the entire weekend in order to attend the Blanca concert on Saturday evening.

 

Question: How do I find my "District"?
Answer:

If you are part of the Peninsula-Delaware Conference of the United Methodist Church, your church will come under one of our 4 Districts (Wilmington, Easton, Salisbury, or Dover).  Please refer to the map below to see which District your church is in.

 

If you are a United Methodist Church in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference, your church will fall under the "EPA" category.

 

If you are from a different denomination or your church is not part of the Peninsula-Delaware or EPA United Methodist Conferences, your church will fall under the "Other" category.

 

If you are unable to determine your District, send your church information to Janet Westbrook.

Question: Where do I get a Health Form?
Answer:

Click Here:  2019 Youth Rally Health Form

In order to receive your Registration Packet when you arrive, you must turn in the Health Forms for everyone in your group (Youth AND Adults).  The Nurses will not treat anyone without this form!  Since the form doubles as a Liability Release, we will be collecting them for that purpose and they will be kept in the Nurse's Station.  We suggest that you make copies of your completed Health Forms in case you need them while not at the Convention Center.

Peninsula-Delaware Conference Safe Sanctuaries Policy

 

 

Question: What is the Adult to Youth ratio?
Answer:

We recommend a ratio of 1 Adult to every 7 Youth.

 

Question: What is the Youth Rally Covenant?
Answer:

THIS EVENT IS FOR 6-12 GRADE STUDENTS & THEIR ADULT LEADERS.

STUDENTS YOUNGER THAN 6TH GRADE WILL NOT BE ADMITTED.

Our behavior should always be that of someone who is representing Christ.

Event leaders, staff & security members should be respected at all times by students & adults.

We should never engage in behavior that would make it difficult for someone else to benefit from their Youth Rally experience.

Adult leaders are responsible for their youth group at all times, including while at the rally, restaurants, hotels, etc.

Each group will provide appropriate adult leadership following Safe Sanctuaries guidelines (adult leaders should have appropriate background checks & be at least 23 years old; groups must have both male & female leaders if both male & female students are participating).

All Youth Rally participants agree that their image or likeness may be used in publicity for future Youth Rallies or YPM events.

 

Question: What is the "Proclaim the Name" Contest?
Answer:

"Proclaim the Name" (formerly known as "Spittin' Da Word") is a youth preaching competition in search of high school students with a passion for sharing God's Word.

If you want to compete, prepare a 5-minute, biblically based message and be one of the first 15 students to register before December 21, 2018 at umyoungpeople.org/proclaim-the-name-2019.  If you have any questions, please e-mail Rev. Rick Wessell at proclaimthename@umyoungpeople.org

The winner will get to share on stage at the rally, and receive a $500 grant for their youth ministry!
