Disciple Now weekend is every year over Martin Luther King Holiday. Whereas some retreat weekends are ore about getting away and hanging out (which is NOT a bad thing), DNOW weekend puts a high premium on discipleship. There are Large Group sessions where a speaker can move the weekend's theme along from a big-picture perspective, and there are super-intentional small group times where students go deeper with their indicidual small group leaders. It's a focused time of spiritual growth and application. "Host Homes" are a key feature of DNOW weekends. A host home is where a family in the church agrees to host a small group for the weekend. Regardless of who's leading the small group, the leader and the students will meet in the host home for Bible Study (when they aren't at the church for large group sessions, or other activities).
