What is ENC Student Ministries?

ENC Student Ministries works with local churches in the Advent Christian Conference of Eastern NC to provide ministry opportunities and youth events for students in middle and high school. Camp Dixie provides leadership for ENC Student Ministries.    Our events provide opportunities for our students to Connect with Christian students, to be Discipled,  to be Equipped through training and to give them opportunities for Outreach.

    If some of the students in your church are participating, it might be helpful for you to know the dates.  Enrollment is open now and closes on September 30.  The program FREE to those enrolled and is paid for by ENC Student Ministries.  Local churches in ENC host our one-day gatherings.  

    Project SaM Information Sheet

    PROJECT SaM DURING COVID-19??? Absolutely! There has never been a time when we’ve needed the highly relational environment of Project SaM more than now!  It may look different than it has over the past decade, but we will figure it out as we go based on safe practices in place at the time!!


    Four times this school year ENC Student Ministries will gather for CONVERGE.  Three of those events will be 3 hour Sunday afternoon events held at Banner Chapel CMC Building in Benson.  The 4th event is an overnight retreat held in March at Camp Dixie.  The purpose of CONVERGE is to strengthen the connections between our students through worship, recreation, good food and Bible study.  It is open to all Middle & High School Students youth leaders and pastors.  Pre-registration not required, but youth leaders asked to report expected numbers a week ahead.  Two local churches partner to provide food for each event.   




    SACA is The Southern Advent Christian Association Youth Ministry.  They sponsor regional events that are attended by youth groups from NC, SC, GA, AL, and FL. Rev. Joe Brown plans the following annual events.  Online registration is available.
