DNOW 2022

D-NOW 2022 is almost here! We are excited to have your 6th - 12th graders join us February 4th-6th for an exciting weekend serving and uniting in Christ. This year is going to be amazing as we highlight 1 Peter 3:15 and how we are called to live a life that is UNASHAMED of the Gospel. With powerful and biblical teaching from Runks Runkles, and passionate worship provided by Travis Clark, it’s going to be a weekend that you do not want to miss.


Discipleship Now (DNOW) is a weekend retreat for 6th -12th grader students. This event takes place from Friday night till Sunday morning.

Each group is led by one of our adult or college leaders, who have cleared background checks, thorough interviews, and appropriate training.

SPEAKER: Runks Runkles

Runks has a passion for Christ and a passion for people. A true evangelist at heart, he has a deep desire to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to this crazy world we’re living in. Runks is a master at communicating the Gospel with clarity, relevance, and depth. His passion for the Gospel, knowledge of the Word of God, and off-the-charts energy will inspire your students and adult to love Jesus, follow Jesus, and share Jesus! He absolutely believes that the power of the Gospel is still the power of the Gospel and no matter how crazy antagonistic our culture may seem to be towards the Gospel it is still the power of God for salvation for all people. So Runks, in his own unique way, unashamedly and refreshingly preaches the Gospel with passion and relevance. However, Runks’ message is not just about getting saved (trusting Christ), it’s about being saved (finding your identity in Christ), living saved (growing in relationship with Christ), and getting more people saved. Jesus saves y’all!! Nothing else matters!

Runks was a Youth Minister for 7 years and in 1998 began traveling the country sharing the Gospel to teenagers, college students, and adults. He holds a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and resides in Levelland, Texas. He and his amazing wife Joanna, have two awesome grown kids.


Travis Clark has a passion for leading others into a position of worship. Travis started his worship ministry pursuit as a guitarist in the BBC student ministry praise band years ago. Travis is a gifted communicator as well as a wonderful praise leader. His heart is for people to grow in a relationship with Christ while recognizing the importance of giving our God glory for the great things He has done!

Travis graduated from the University of North Texas and is married to his wife Danielle. Travis loves the outdoors and has made music a part of his ministry for the glory of God.
