Teens Encounter Christ (TEC)

Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) is a very powerful program for high schooler students and is attended by teens from Edina and the surrounding area. This life-changing program happens twice per year at our church and includes students from within and outside of St. Stephen’s.

The atmosphere of the weekend makes it easy to develop new friendships and experience being a part of a loving and supportive faith community. Three days of worship, wonderful contemporary Christian music, prayer, great food, fun, and fellowship is led by a team of over 100 teens and adults. The weekend is based on a series of talks and small group discussions. TEC offers opportunities for both new participants (“candidates”) and returning youth (“team”) to learn and grow in Jesus Christ.
