The Ascent Informational Slide

West Virginia North NYI is excited to announce “The Ascent,” a two-event in which teens can come together in fellowship, faith, fun, food, and hiking!  We will take in the beautiful hills of Cooper’s Rock State Forest and reflect on how together with God we rise out of the valleys we find ourselves in.  

There are two parts to this event. Those who do not wish to spend the night may participate in just the Saturday activities at Cooper’s Rock if they wish.  

Our event will begin Friday evening at Pierpont Church of the Nazarene in Morgantown, WV.  Registration will begin at 6:30pm with the event kicking off at 7:00pm. This experience will include games, worship, and pizza!  There will be assigned sleeping areas throughout the facility—bring your sleeping bag!  Breakfast will be served Saturday morning. 

Saturday at 10am we will meet up at Cooper’s Rock State Forest, Shelter #2. From there we will go on hiking trails in various groups.  Lunch will be served at 1pm at that same shelter.   This is about a 15-minute drive from Pierpont.  



We are asking that all participants bring $5 to help with the cost of the event.



While there is no deadline to register, we ask that those bringing teens please notify us ahead of time how many you plan to bring to either event to help us with planning. 


All participants must have a form filled out and signed (and signed by their parent/guardian if under 18) in order to participate with our group.


Looking forward to a wonderful weekend together!
