We hope that you will plan to join us for the New Wilmington Mission Conference.  The chart below represents the current fee structure. The cost includes all housing, meals, and programming.  There is also a $1,600 family maximum for families residing at the same address.  Middle School students are invited to be Luggage Carriers to help defray their cost.  High School and Young Adult participants will also have a way to defray cost which will be provided soon.

A description of each age group can be found by scrolling down past the chart.  More details about these programs can be found in our FAQ's and in the information specific to each age group.

Age Group Descriptions

  • Adult - This program is appropriate for adults of all ages with an interest in mission work at home and abroad.
  • GAP - This Gradual Adult Program is designed for recent college graduates and professionals beginning their careers.  GAP specifically targets “20 and 30-somethings” as a way to bridge the gap between the Young Adult and the Adult program. 
  • Young Adults - This program targets those who are college-aged.  Individuals who are one year out of High School but are not yet 24 years old will be housed with the Young Adult Program.   
  • High School - The High School program includes those who have completed 9th grade through those who have graduated from high school.
  • Middle School - Students who have completed 6th-8th grade are part of the Middle School program. 
  • Juniors - Students who have completed 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade.
  • Primaries - Students who are entering Kindergarten through having completed 2nd grade.
  • Preschoolers - Children ages 3-4 are invited to participate in this group.
  • Infants/Toddlers- Children under 3 years old.  ~  There is no charge for infants and toddlers who are not using childcare. If a family plans to make use of the childcare for their infant or toddler, a separate fee will apply.

Luggage Carriers

Middle School students may receive a $50 reduction in their cost by serving as luggage carriers.  Luggage carriers will arrive and register early on the first Saturday of the Conference and then assist families and older participants with moving their luggage into their dorms.  Similarly, on the final Friday of the conference, luggage carriers will be asked to assist older adults and families with moving out.   Those participating must be sure that they will be present on both the first and the last full day of the Conference to take advantage of this offer.   There are only a limited number of positions available, so those hoping to be luggage carriers are encouraged to apply early.

Mission Service Scholarship

A limited number of $120 scholarships are available for Young Adult and High School Student participants willing to engage in mission and service work in their own communities before the 2017 NWMC Conference.

Mission Guests

New for 2017! For many years, NWMC has been blessed to have many full-time mission workers attend the conference and work as part of our “Mission Staff.” These folks taught, inspired, and helped us interpret what it means to be part of God’s mission in the world. While we will continue to have some individuals serving in this role, we want to extend an invitation to additional full-time mission workers to attend the conference as our guests for a time of rest, rejuvenation, connection, and learning. Your stories and testimonies are important to the life of NWMC, and we want to honor the work that you are doing.


If you currently serve as a full-time mission worker and would like to attend NWMC in this capacity, please e-mail us at for more information.
