Teen Sessions…(12-18 years old)  

The Teen Sessions this year are being led by Lucas and Anthea ”Thea” Ramirez.


 Since 2005, Lucas Ramirez has been director of Youth Ministries for Wesley United Methodist, St. Simon’s Island, GA.  Mentored during undergraduate studies by Duffy Robbins (noted author, speaker and authority on teens), Lucas received his B.A. in Youth Ministry in 2005 from Eastern University (St. David’s, PA).  In keep with having received the most nominations, ever; for Eastern’s Barnabas Servant Leadership Award, Lucas’ passion has only grown for maximizing every teen’s sense of value and potential.  He has traveled worldwide in mission work; is noted for his teaching and leadership gifts; and is currently working on a book.  Lucas founded Fusion in 2007, an organization, which facilitates the interaction of interdenominational youth and develops church unity. In 2006, he married Anthea ‘Thea’ Sholander Ramirez, who he met at college.  Lucas and Thea are both distinguished alumni of Focus on the Family’s Institute in CO. and were students of Dr. Del Tackett, founder of the Truth Project. In 2008, Thea earned her Master’s in Social Work and in November the same year, the couple welcomed their first child, Luciana.  The family resides in Brunswick, GA. with their chocolate Lab, Bailey; in a historic home they renovated themselves.

Awakening is a family event.  Children three and older have a super slate of sessions that occur simultaneously with the adult sessions. The leaders of these sessions are instructors; however, they are not baby sitters. Your child’s supervision is under your care between sessions.  When the sessions adjourn please see that your children are “collected” and in their next class before attending yours.


They will be conducted this year under the supervision of two bright elementary educators, Mrs. Lauren Wilson and Mrs. Elizabeth Johnson

There will be an hour of entertainment following the party.This event concludes before the Black Tie dinner, therefore, a sitter IS necessary to accompany the younger children to their party and remain with them until the Saturday night evening concludes. Sitters can be acquired through the Sanctuary by prior call and confirmation.
