ELEMENT FAQS

The mission of ELEMENT is to provide an amazing weekend experience to Middle and High school students. While we have decided to make some minor tweaks for 2018 (see below), our mission for ELEMENT has not changed. Our mission with Element:

  • Students have the best opportunity to grow closer to Jesus and their relationships with each other.
  • Students and Volunteers have an amazing time.
  • Students and Volunteers are at all times safe.

To ensure that your students have an amazing weekend, we wanted to be sure you were aware of the changes we’ve decided to make and believe are best this year. While we don’t forsee these being permanent changes for Element in the future, we will evaluate and get your feedback following this year’s event.

Please take a moment to check out our restructured schedule and FAQ’s about changes made and other Element updates below.

FAQs for ELEMENT WKND 2018

1. WHAT MEALS WILL BE PROVIDED?

All ELEMENT participants will receive dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. 

2. WILL STUDENTS BE STAYING IN HOST HOMES AT ELEMENT 2018?

During ELEMENT 2018, students will not be staying in Host Homes.

3. IS CARLOS WHITTAKER STILL SPEAKING?

Yes!  Carlos Whittaker will be here for both the evening sessions. He is excited to be with us this year!

4. DO STUDENTS NEED TO BRING SPENDING MONEY?

The only spending money your student will need to bring is if he/she would like to purchase items at the ELEMENT store. Items will range from $5 to $20.

5. WHY ARE STUDENTS NOT DOING ANYTHING OFF SITE?

Unfortunately, Highpoint has received very PUBLIC negative attention in recent days, especially on social media.  At all times we want to keep students and volunteers safe from negative factors and influences, which will take away from the purpose of the event.  This is why we have decided all components of ELEMENT 2018 will take place on site at Highpoint East Memphis.
