Participate

Youth, you’re invited to participate in the event as a worship leader.

Opportunities are available to be a worship leader in sharing your story, sharing creative arts gifts, serving in the House Band and more!

Youth leadership is central to Pilgrimage. The NC Conference Committee on Youth Ministries defines the direction of each annual event. Youth leaders of the Conference participate in the event planning process, as well as serve as worship leaders during the Pilgrimage weekend.

House Band

The Pilgrimage House Band serves as the musical leadership for the four worship sessions during Pilgrimage. The members of the House Band are selected through an application and audition process in early August and will gather for a retreat and rehearsals before the Pilgrimage weekend.

Youth that have a musical talent are invited to audition.
