General Questions

Are partial conference rates available?

Partial registration is not available. We recommend registering and attending as much of the conference as your schedule will allow.

Are seats assigned?

All tickets for this conference are general admission. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each session. There will be a number of seats saved for worship teams, guest speakers and large groups (40+). Any other seat-saving before the doors open is not allowed.

Can I (parent or guardian of attendee) come inside the building?

Due to safety concerns we do not allow adults into the building that is not a registered Gateway Student Conference volunteer or staff member. We require every adult working conference to have a background check. This is the best way for us to ensure your student is safe. Thank you for understanding.

Can I register at the door?

If the conference is NOT sold out, at-the-door registration will be accepted at the At The Door rate.

Do I have to bring students in order to participate in the Youth Pastor Track?

While we would love for you to bring the students from your youth group, it�s not required to participate in the Youth Pastor Track. Please note you will still need to purchase tickets for each adult attendee.

How do I request financial aid?

Financial aid applications will be available to students currently attending Gateway Students on Wednesday nights beginning April 1, 2020. If you are in need of financial aid for a current Gateway Student, please contact his or her campus directly.

How does the meal wristband work?

The meal wristband is available as an �add-on� to your ticket in Brushfire. Each meal wristband costs $35 and covers four meals (lunch and dinner on Thursday and lunch and dinner on Friday). These wristbands cover all meals and there is not another option for certain meal times only. If you purchased a meal wristband, you will receive it at check in. To pick up your meal, go to the meal pick up tent marked on your map and show the Food Crew your meal wristband.

I am a youth leader bringing a large group. Can we request group seating?

If you bring 40 or more attendees, you qualify for reserved seating! After you register, we will send you an email to confirm that you would like to take advantage of group seating.

What does the registration fee cover?

The registration fee covers conference admission only. Meals, hotel, and transportation are not included.

What is the Youth Pastor Track?

The Youth Pastor Track is available to guest youth pastors while your students are engaged in community groups with our staff. These 4 sessions are an opportunity to connect with each other and receive valuable behind-the-scenes time with our Gateway Students staff and conference speakers. When it comes time to leave the conference, we want guest youth pastors to feel refreshed, encouraged, and empowered to lead their students like never before! There is no additional cost for participation in the Youth Pastor Track sessions.

What is the refund policy?

All tickets are transferable. Thank you for understanding that all payments are non-refundable for any reason, please click here to read our cancellation policy.

What meals are included with the meal wristband?

Last year we provided boxed meals that included BBQ sandwiches, Chickfila sandwiches, cheeseburgers and turkey sandwiches (all meals came with chips and a drink). Although we can�t guarantee specific meals, for GWSC20 we expect to serve similar meals. Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accommodate food allergies.

What should I bring?

You should bring your Bible and money for meal purchases onsite or conference merchandise.

What should I wear?

Casual attire is recommended. The auditorium is enclosed and air-conditioned. Because the temperatures may vary, we encourage wearing jeans and layered clothing. We suggest bringing a light jacket or hoodie. All of our activities will be indoors.

When does the event begin and end?

Check-in begins on Wednesday, July 15 at 4:00 pm. Even though the first session of the conference doesn�t start until 7:00 pm, we start check-in early to accommodate those travelling from out of town and those interested in avoiding lines. The conference concludes on Friday, July 17 by 10pm.
