9th Graders will be invited to all Happenings beginning in 2019!
In 1992, several teens and adults attended Mississippi Happening #11 in hopes of starting Happening in Louisiana.
It Happened!!! LA Happening #1 was held in Alexandria, Louisiana at Tall Timbers Retreat Center in January of 1993. Since then we have moved to the Wesley Center in Woodworth, Louisiana.
The Happening Experience is a powerful instrument of renewal in the Church. The weekend theme is developed through a series of talks which compare the changing nature of material and social reality as compared to the permanent nature of spiritual reality, a firm foundation on which teens can build a secure foundation on life.
The Happening staff is made up of teenagers 10-12th grades. Adults are present to support the weekend, including Spiritual Directors. Happening provides a method through which one's spirituality may be developed, lived, and shared in fellowship with Christians willing to dedicate their lives to God in an ongoing manner.
