About Pilgrimage
Event History, Core Values, and Planning Team Roles and Positions.

Pilgrimage has been bringing 5000+ youth (6th-12th grades) and mentors to the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC for 24 years.  It is a life-changing weekend event filled with amazing artists, thought provoking speakers, and inspiring youth leadership--all bearing witness to the transforming love of Christ.  Sponsored by the North Carolina United Methodist Conference, this weekend is for students and adult student leaders of all denominations looking for a weekend worship experience that calls everyone to a new or stronger faith in Jesus, challenging everyone to share God's love in word and action.

Our CORE Values

For 23 years, Pilgrimage has been a space for youth (6th-12th grades) and mentors to gather together for a life-changing, worship-filled weekend event with artists, guest speakers, and youth leadership.

  • Creating meaningful and Christ-centered learning, mission, and worship experiences for youth
  • Empowering, equipping, and nurturing youth to become leaders in the local, district, and conference levels of the church
  • Practicing Wesleyan traditions while embodying the spirit of Christ in uniting diverse members of our community
