• NCC Pilgrimage, a Virtual Event: November 13-15, 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

The Pilgrimage Weekend has a different look for 2020, but three things remain the same. Pilgrimage 2020 will:

  • Create meaningful and Christ-centered learning, mission and worship experiences for youth of the NC Conference
  • Empower, equip and nurture youth to become leaders in the local, district and conference levels of the church
  • Practice Wesleyan traditions while embodying the spirit of Christ in uniting diverse members of our community

As the Pilgrimage Experience is different for the 2020 event, we’ve compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for Youth and their Leaders:
