- What is the weekly schedule?
Formal programming concludes with Evening Meeting on Friday around 9:00pm, although the social programs and small groups still continue to meet after this time. Participants are invited to stay in the dorms on Friday night so that they may get a good night's sleep before traveling home on Saturday. We do ask that you plan to move out of the dorms by 8:00am on the final Saturday of the conference to allow our staff to checkout the dorms and make their departures at a reasonable time.

* Early Registration - You can secure the best possible price by registering by May 1st.
* Group Discount - Participants coming with other individuals from their church may find that registering as a group of 10 or more secures the best price. When registering as a group each individual saves $20 off of their registration price, and the group leader may come for free.
* Bring a Friend - Participants who have attended before may receive a $20 discount for each friend they bring with them who is new to the New Wilmington Mission Conference. That friend will also receive a $20 discount. (This discount is not available with group registration.)
* Family Maximum - There is a family maximum of $1600. This is designed for families who live at teh same residence.
*Staff Positions - for adults, there are a limited number of staff positions available. Please contact the director, Ginny Teitt, to discuss the details of attending NWMC as a staff member.
* Dining Hall Workers - Students participating in the High School and Young Adult programs can work in the dining halls to reduce their fees. Students are asked to work EITHER all of the lunch meals or all of the dinner meals, AND half of the breakfast meals. Working in the dining halls may include such tasks as busing tables, serving food, and washing dishes. Those working in the dining hall receive a discount of $120 off of their registration price. There are a limited number of dining hall positions available, so those hoping to take advantage of this program are encouraged to register early.
* Luggage Carriers - Students participating in the Middle School program will receive a $50 credit for working as a luggage carrier. This entails helping older adult and family participants carry their belongings to their rooms. Middle School students working as luggage carriers must plan to be present on both the first day (Saturday) and the last full day (Friday) of the Conference. There are a limited number of luggage carrier positions available, so those who hope to take advantage of this program are encouraged to register early.* Scholarships - There are some scholarship funds available for international and racial-ethnic participants. Please contact the director, Ginny Teitt, to discuss the details of these scholarships.
- Can I attend with a youth group?
- As a student, can I attend on my own?
- What should I pack?
Clothing for a variety of weather situations - warm and humid days, cooler nights, rain
Bed Linens (Mattresses are Twin XL)
Notebook and Pen
Air mattress or portable crib for small children attending with you
Shoes that are comfortable for walking
Swim suit - for optional swimming at the college's indoor pool
- What is the dress code?
It is also a NWMC tradition to attend the evening meetings and Sunday Morning's worship "cleaned up." Some participants prefer to be dressier in the evening and on Sunday morning than during the other days of the Conference. This may include dresses, skirts, and collared polo-type shirts. However, dressing up is optional, and we invite everyone who attends NWMC to dress in such a way to feel comfortable.
We do hope that every participant at NWMC will dress in a way that is honoring to themselves and the Lord, taking into account the cultural sensitivities of other attenders.
- What are the accommodations?
- What are the dorm rooms like?
A very small number of the adult dorm rooms are air-conditioned, but most of the dorms are not. For your comfort, you may want to bring a fan and an extension cord.
The bathrooms in the dorms are community bathrooms. There are individual shower and toilet stalls, but the bathrooms are shared among all of the participants on a hall.
