Beginning Experience weekends are held at Luther Crest Bible Camp in Alexandria, Minnesota. Beginning Experience practices an inter-faith approach in its ministry and we welcome all Christians, regardless of where they may be in their faith journey.


Central Minnesota Beginning Experience offers a choice of two Friday through Sunday weekend dates per year:

  • March 27 - 29, 2020

  • October 2 - 4, 2020

The fee for the weekend is $175. The first half of the fee ($87.50) is required at time of registration and must be received at least two weeks prior to the weekend selected. The remainder of the fee is due on the Sunday of your weekend.

Your fee includes:


  • Beginning Experience Program

  • written materials

  • cost of meals

  • accommodations for two nights at Luther Crest Bible Camp

* A payment plan or limited scholarship funds many be available to assist you if needed. Scholarship recipients are asked to volunteer time to limited fundraising activity.
