Some additional subsidies may be available on request for those with financial need. Please have conversations with the PAC Youth team at the beginning of the fundraising process.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where Will We Stay?
LIFE 2019 will be held in Orlando, FL. The conference, as well as our sleeping accommodations, are at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

Each leader is responsible for a small group (approximately 5-7) of same-gender students throughout the conference.
When Do We Leave and Return?
We leave from Princeton Alliance Church (PAC) Saturday, July 6, 2019, time to be determined. We return to PAC late Sunday, July 14, 2019.
What Is Our Travel Transportation?
PAC contracts a coach bus service for travel to Orlando. Once at our destination, our hotel is also our conference center. Therefore there will be minimal bus use other than a couple of group trips.
Where Will We Eat?
Scheduled meal stops occur as we travel to and from Orlando. Onsite, PAC provides breakfast and the event catering staff contracted by Marriott and our LIFE team supplies our team with five dinners and four lunches during the LIFE Conference. We received notice that the caterer for LIFE 2019 is able to accommodate almost all allergies and dietary restrictions as long as they are informed on a timely basis. If this is an issue for your child, let’s talk about this immediately after registering your child.
What About Free Time?
Activities will vary from day to day, but some structured free time is available during the week for fellowship with other teens to experience live concerts, games, and to browse the LIFE Store.
