"My highlight of Rise Up was growing closer to Christ and becoming more sure of God’s plan for my life. It was one of the first times that I have heard in my heart things from the Holy Spirit and been completely and totally at peace with them."
"Rise Up was very much a retreat from the busyness of the world and allowed me to have the time to be available to God without anything holding me back."
"The commissioning night when we prayed over each other was my highlight. It was so beautiful and empowering; and I felt the Holy Spirit active among us. It was a real gift!"
"During the night of adoration I really felt that I encountered Jesus in a way I never did before. The music and the atmosphere was really powerful, I don’t think I had ever seen that many young people praising Jesus like that before."

All payment is subject to our payment policy:

Full payment is required to register for Rise Up 2020. Payment is accepted by credit card only. In the exceptional circumstance that payment by cheque is required, payment is due by December 22nd, 2020 or registration is subject to cancellation.

If you do not have a credit card to pay for registration, please email before proceeding through registration

You are able to register more than one person at a time. Once you add the “Registration VIP” or “Registration Basic” to your “shopping cart” you can click on the link that is within the description that will bring you back to the registration form. Submit another form for the second person and add another registration item to your “shopping cart”., Once you have finished adding people and within the current tab you are using, then proceed to payment at the “checkout”. Ensure you have the same number of items as people registered. If you have any questions, please email

Absolutely. This event is meant to gather young adults from across the country, including students from university or college campuses where CCO missionaries are not present. You are welcome!

Again, yes. Rise Up is a conference open to all young adults aged 18-35. Everyone can benefit from the opportunity to encounter Jesus and be inspired to become a leader in the renewal of the world.

Generally, we do not accept registrations from high school students because participants must be 18 or older at the time of the conference, otherwise this poses a liability challenge for us. However, if you are in high school and are 18 or older, you may register.

Not to worry. You don’t have to register again. Just send us an email at and we will make the change on the back end.

Unfortunately, due to the short nature of Rise Up 2020 we will not have day passes or session passes available. The beauty of having Rise Up online is that those who registered will have access to the recordings after the conference as well, if you are not able to attend on the actual days. You will have to register prior to Rise Up in order to have access.

To cancel your registration, please email with your first name, last name, email address, and the reason for cancellation. Once received, your registration will be cancelled and your credit card on file will be refunded according to the following rules:

  • Cancellations made on or before November 25, 2020 will receive a full refund.
  • Cancellations received on or after November 26, 2020, will no longer be eligible for a refund and any outstanding charges must be paid in full or registration may be subject to cancellation by the Rise Up team.

Registration for Rise Up is non-transferrable, meaning a conference link can only be used by the person who registered for it. Please email if you have any other questions about our policy.

No. We ask that you please do not share the link that you are given with others. We encourage everyone to register themselves.

Some best practices when it comes to not having screen fatigue quickly are:

  • Utilize the break times to step away from the computer. Go outside (if you can) during the breaks.
  • Stand up in between sessions
  • Adjust the brightness of your screen

If your internet cuts out during the conference, just log back in and continue with the conference. You will have access to the recordings after the conference is over and you can go back in to watch what you missed when your internet cut out.
