Thought this note I wrote to our high school team might be a good read and/or something you would want to copy/edit/make better for your own summer camp adventures, too!
Just wanted to shared a few words with you tonight on HSM Summer Camp Eve! Tomorrow we’re going to take close to 750 people on a 5-day journey where along the way God will chang lives forever. We are going to witness this up close and personal. What a journey to this point: so much heart, so much hard work. So many God moments. So many students!
This week we get the priviledge to be a part of something where:
… will trust Christ for the 1st time
… laugh, play and love
… will be baptized to show their faith
… will be insipred to serve the community and reach their friends
… will grow in their faith
… deal with the darkness of their heart/life/experiences
… freshman get their initiation of HSM
… graduates who get their last hurrah
… all who will be challenged in so many ways
… find a calling to full-time ministry
… will be stretched and challenged beyond themselves
… took time off from work to serve the church
… hearts will grow immensely
… maybe discover a life-long call to youth ministry
… will be challenged to capacity
… will make memories that will last forever
… get to have a front row seat to God showing up big
You are incredible. This week is going to be life-changing. For you. For all of us.
Here we go! JG
