We are looking for people that are excited to sacrifice a precious week of their summer, endure unimaginably short nights, exhausting days, extreme cold, extreme heat, bugs the size of elephants, mud, rocks, bumps, bruises, and dirt! Yup we want you to be excited about things as they are an opportunity to serve the Kingdom of God and demonstrate the power of His love in our lives! Of course those who have been and those who have heard about camp know that there is much more to it than those things. First and foremost though, it is a time that we can set aside to glorify our Savior with our time, money and energy. It is also a great place to grow closer to Him and in fellowship with each other. We want a staff dedicated to worship and train together and to serve and edify each other for the glory of God. Please prayerfully consider coming to camp this year.
Camp this year is August 2nd – 10th, the fee is $200, applications with a $50 deposit our due by June 15th, and full payment due by July 21st. The application is at the end of this post along with the address to send checks.
What You’re Signing Up For:
You are signing up to be part of a week in which you and the team set aside their regular life, intentionally take up the cross of sacrifice and live, speak, and breathe the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Native American youth. Some of you will be counselors, some activity leaders, some of you will be cleaners – all equal and all working to glorify the King. All roles will require sacrifice of personal comfort. In addition to the actual camp we will be sending out training material through the summer that will prepare us more fully for the task we are called to do. Although most of us will have a working understanding of the gospel and the work of Jesus Christ, there is a big difference between having a head knowledge of it and being able to convey that miracle to others. As such we will be sending out material on missional evangelism. Participating in this will be required. By God’s grace He will grow us into kingdom warriors.
We have a lofty vision and many goals this year. As I saw them on paper I thought to myself that these were near impossible – that they were fully unrealistic goals. BUT we serve a God that is unrealistically good, who loves glorifying Himself by doing the impossible! So let’s approach this year in faith!
All of our time, effort, money, preparation, and attention mean absolutely nothing absent the working of the Spirit. So let us be diligently praying for His presence, His guidance, His working in us in now our preparation, and at camp!
If you cannot come, those of us who are going earnestly covet your prayers! They are as important to His work as our efforts. So please keep us in your prayers!
We’re praying for:
1. 30 staff excited to serve the Kingdom
2. $10K to cover the expanded cost of camp
3. 1 (reliable) Bus
4. 40 campers!
We will be sending out updates on these requests periodically throughout the summer.
