frequently asked questions
When is LT?
LT 2017 is from July 8th through July 14th.
Where is LT?
The LT venues are in Wilmington, NC. Lodging is on campus at UNCW, teaching sessions are at Life Community Church, and food and other activities are at Northside Community Church, both within 10 minutes drive from the dorms at UNCW.
What is provided in the rooms?
Per participant: XL twin bed, desk, chair, dresser, two flat sheets, one pillow, one light blanket, bath towel, hand towel, washcloth. Most rooms have two beds; a few have three or four. Some rooms have too much A/C; some don't have enough. An extra blanket and/or a small fan might be desired.
What is the residence hall like?
It's a three-story air conditioned building with five residence pods, one on the 1st floor and two each on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Each pod has a single-gender bathroom containing curtained shower/dressing stalls and community sinks. Free washers and dryers are on the first floor; laundry detergent is provided. Access to a refrigerator for medical and/or dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notice.
Can students count LT as community service?
It's likely that the service projects would qualify for community service. The church leader would need to verify the student's participation.
Can we pick our rooms in Cornerstone?
No. You can indicate a preferred floor/area and we will do our best, but it won't be our top priority. If someone needs to be near the bathroom or has other genuine needs, please indicate that on the Housing Assignment form.
For Church Coordinators
What is the purpose of the driver forms?
Driver forms are used by staff to assign your group to one or more Go Group teams. Driver Forms give us the information we need to create relatively evenly-divided groups by number of students and adult volunteers. This form is needed by the final registration date.
How do we fill out the Driver Forms?
Determine the names of the people who will be driving students from activity to activity during the week at LT--those are the Drivers on the form. Based on how many people are attending in your group and how many seats are in each vehicle, split the students and volunteers among those vehicles. You are not locked in to those numbers but please let the Registration Director know ASAP if your numbers change. Include any non-participants (i.e., sibling tagalongs) in the Other column. List attendees registered with your group but not participating in Go Groups in the Not Included section.
What if a participant doesn't have insurance?
Describe the situation on the form. For instance, list the name of the medical sharing plan used, if that's the case.
Can we email the forms instead of mailing them?
Because the forms need to be printed and kept on hand during LT, we prefer you mail them to reduce our printing costs. Emailing one or two forms is not a problem, but please mail them if there are more.
Can minors and adults room together?
It is preferred that minors and unrelated adults not room together. However, if there are circumstances where that is the best option, it is allowed. A Roommate Waiver must be completed for all minor/adult rooming situations.
What if we end up with a person in a room by themselves? Do they have to pay the single surcharge?
If it's a minor, there are some triple rooms we can use to keep a minor from being in a room alone. Indicate that on the Housing Assignment form. If it's an adult, he/she will not need to pay the single surcharge if the other same-gender adults are already paired up. If he/she prefers to have a roommate, indicate that on the Housing Assignment form and we will try to pair him/her up with someone from another group. If an adult has the option of a roommate but indicates that he/she prefers to have a single, the single surcharge will apply. As long as we have space available, we will accommodate requests for singles.
Do we have to pay for parking passes this year?
Yes. As in the previous two years, please have cash available at check-in. The cost will be $1/day for each vehicle. Parking is restricted to the lots indicated on the pass.
What if we have students but no leader of the same gender?
Let us know and we can connect you with another group who may be willing to partner with you to provide adequate leadership of your participants.
I have a student or volunteer who is 18. Is he/she an adult or a minor?
Unless he/she has been out of high school for at least a year by the time of LT, he/she is a minor for the purposes of LT. Minors need parent signatures; adults need background checks.
What if I'm still confused or need to convey information not asked for on the forms?
