An intern & a college volunteer were willing to take a plunge in hopes of getting a few more teens excited about summer camp.

WIRED Summer Camp Reflections

Filed under: Summer,Summer Camp,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 8:24 am
  • Student Ministry is as much about adults as it is teenagers.
  • We had an amazing group of 55 adults who served incredibly this week.
  • Thankful for interns who work non-stop for very little $.  I remember those days…
  • Really blessed to be a part of the staff that planned WIRED.
  • Thankful for a education minister & a pastor who served on our food team this week.
  • Stuart Hall was phenomenal.  I’ve never had a “name” speaker be so easy to work w/ & really minister to our teens.  He sent us all of the small group material that went alone w/ the messages 2 weeks! before we’d asked for them.
  • If you are in youth ministry or a parent & have not read Max Q by Stuart Hall & Andy Stanley you need to purchase it.  His morning messages were principles straight out of the book.
  • 190 teens & not 1 complaint by the security or anyone associated w/ the condos!
  • We saw God move in the hearts & minds of teenagers as they were challenged to live out their faith.

For more about went on at camp check out our student ministry’s facebook & twitter accounts.

Camp is a blast, but I’m really glad to be home.  We’ve got 1 week “off” before we take some of our leadership students to Super Summer.

Summer Camp Kickoff

Filed under: Summer Camp — Neil @ 10:43 pm

Tonight, we began registration for Wired (summer camp).  Stuart Hall is speaking at our camp & he was able to join us tonight.

Our goal was to create momentum for summer camp.  The crowd was bigger than normal, but a few sporting events kept us from having a huge crowd.  We did have more guests than normal. Hopefully, that’ll translate into them attending summer camp.

Summer Camp Registration

Filed under: Summer,Summer Camp,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 9:06 pm

Our summer camp registration begins tomorrow.  Here’s 3 short videos I shot back in September while on a site visit.  All of the beach, condo, pools, etc. talk is because we target our summer camp for teens who aren’t already following Jesus.
