What is Regeneration 2024?
The Salvation Army hosts an annual conference for Young Adults ages 18-29, from the central 11 states including larger cities Detroit, Milwaukee, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, etc. and from rural Nebraska/Iowa/Indiana as well as suburbs all around. In the past we have hosted over 250 attendees at our camp in southern Wisconsin. Regeneration’s seven outcomes (see below) provide the framework for the weekend. Supported by the research conducted at Fuller Youth Institute, Regeneration aims cultivate a for young adults space that explores identity, belonging and purpose through biblical teaching, discipleship and Christian community.
How much will it Cost?
Only $50. Only $50? Yes, only $50. That’s a real sweet deal, considering it includes: all housing, meals, fun, electricity, water, heat, swag, places to sit or stand and interesting things to look at for the whole weekend.
When is Regeneration 2024?
Regeneration will be held the weekend of February 16-18th. This is President’s Day weekend, so you may have the following Monday off school or work.
How old should I be?
Regeneration is a conference for young adults. You must be between the ages of 18-29 (by 2/10/2024) to attend. There is one exception… If you are 30 or older and are active in young adult ministry on the local Corps or Divisional level you are now welcome to attend. (You will need to describe your involvement on the registration form).
What is Regeneration 2024 about this year?

What are you going to DO after you graduate?
What are you DOING for work?
Tell me about what you are DOING in life?

So often these questions are asked as a way to connect with the ever-changing dynamics of young adulthood. And while these questions may be a well-intentioned attempt to connect, often leaves us with even more questions.

Am I doing the right thing?
Or how do I know what God wants me to do?
Or I know what I’m supposed to do but I don’t know how to start?

But as humans it is not only about what we are doing, we are human BEINGS. At Regeneration 2024, we want explore the rhythm between DOING and BEING. As Dr. Barry Jones shares in his book Dwell:

“There is a rhythm of life that pulses through the biblical vision of what it means to be human. A kind of breathing in and breathing out. An inhale and an exhale. The breathing in is our participation in the divine life. The breathing out, our participation in the divine mission. The breathing in is intimately connected to our experience of God’s personal presence. It is life lived with God. The breathing out involves our participation in God’s just reign. It is life lived for the sake of the world. The breathing in we often call “spirituality.” And the breathing out we call “mission.”

We must reconnect spirituality and mission, showing how the spiritual life, when lived properly, follows this progression: we become like Christ by dwelling in Him, loving him with all our heart and soul and mind and strength. And then because we are His temple and He dwells in us, we DO the work of loving our neighbors as ourselves

Can my spouse and/or child come?

YES! Childcare will be provided for families with children up to 3 years of age. Spouses of registered young adult delegates who are over the age of 30 are welcome to register and attend Regeneration 2024. Please contact our office via email at [email protected].


1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NIV) “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.”

Ephesians 2:19-22 (NLT) “So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit.”
