Deco-TEC is an ecumenical movement where groups of “Teens Encounter Christ.” Deco-TEC is not designed to replace the teen’s home church or youth group. Instead, it is designed to enhance the church and youth group experience.


TEC is strictly non-denominational and no church doctrine will be taught. Instead the teens will be introduced to Jesus and His gospel. Many different denominations come together to exhibit the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ.


A TEC weekend is designed to promote peer ministry. On the weekend a group of dedicated adults and teens love and minister to the teen candidates right where they are at. Whether churched or unchurched, the teen is validated and accepted right where they are.


As the weekend unfolds the teens experience great food, talks, chapels, discussions, prayer, fellowship and even some surprises along the way.

Deco-TEC is open to all teens age 13 to 19.
