The Wave has been Rescheduled!


GRADES 6-12  |  JULY 19 – 22, 2021  |  WILDERNESS RESORT

Given all the uncertainty we face with COVID-19, WAVE 2020 will not happen at Wilderness Resort as planned this year.  The plan is to reschedule for July 19-22, 2021

We’ll continue to follow CDC guidelines on public gatherings, and we are already dreaming of ways to bring an amazing experience to our teens and their friends, THIS SUMMER, closer to home, when we know it’s safe to gather. 

In this season, when so much of our world looks different, we’ve decided the best way to care for students, families, and volunteers is for the Wave to be rescheduled. 

A Message from our Youth Pastor, Alaina Bennetts,

As we forward to summer, we are making the decision now to be good stewards of the resources God has put in our hands. Months of preparation go into the Wave each year. After considering the uncertainty families face and the likelihood of Coronavirus continuing to spread, we knew it would not be wise to move forward with Wave 2020.

Each family will be getting their deposits returned to them through SecureGive.
If you’ve given to the WAVE Fund in 2020, we’ll be in touch to answer any questions you have.

As we make new plans, we’ll update with our new game plan of what this summer looks like with reaching teens for Jesus. We know it’s gonna be good because we serve a GOOD GOD but we also know it may not be easy, so we’ll be doing what we can to set the pace as we keep our eyes on Jesus.
If you have questions in the meantime, I want to help.

God Bless,
Alaina Bennetts
Pastor of Teens
Fierce Church

What are the dates for the Wave?

July 19 – 22, 2021

What is a day at the Wave like?

Students start the day spending time with Jesus, learning about Him from the Bible and talking to Him in prayer. Students can do this outside or in the room, as long as everyone sticks together.

Next, we’ll kick off the mornings with a combination of sessions, community groups, and fun! Sessions are a lot like a Level Ground night but better. Then, they head into small groups in the session to hash out what they just experienced. Leading them to Community Groups, where Squads meet up with a few other Squads and use their FUN PASS. Doing some group activities around Wildnress, and by midday, everyone is getting hungry.

Lunch is different every day, but it’s always delicious. After eating, students have free time to relax on the water parks, indoor or outdoor, lounge at the pool, take a nap— whatever the entire room can agree to.

Each night, we come together for dinner and an evening session. We sing, we learn, and we pray. Then, it’s back to the room for small group time. And maybe a little sleep. Maybe.

Now that the Wave has been rescheduled, What happens to my money if I already paid my deposit?

You will receive your deposit back. An email will be sent to you directly giving you information about how you will receive it.

What happens to the money my student raised for the Wave 2020?

All money students raised for the Wave 2020 will be saved for each student who raised it and they will have the option of using it towards the Wave 2021.

Will there be something to replace the Wave 2020?

We are already planning new ways to create the best experience possible for our Fierce Teens. As we know what restrictions will be in place for this summer we will be updating you via so be sure to check it.
