In camp ministry we have the amazing opportunity to come alongside youth pastors and churches as they strive to help teens find the hope of Jesus in this world! New City Church (formerly Church at Charlotte: here, here and here) and First Baptist Estero (here, here, here, here, and here) are two groups we’ve been blessed to walk with for several years now. These guys feel like family!
Having a place for teens to get away out of their ordinary, out of their bubbles, and find fresh mountain air (filled with gnats;)!!) and a slew of people whose job it is to hang out and encourage them makes for a week that can be quite life changing!
Escape the Noise. Encounter the Whisper.® It’s what we exist for. And no matter how many times they’ve been to Whisper Mountain before, there’s nothing quite like God’s personal whisper into messy and complicated lives, over and over again.
Trying new things on our own but surrounded by people who are cheering us on can be helpful in pushing us to hard things and knowing the victory of doing life with others!
Last week we saw six teens get baptized at our local lake. The joy they wear on their faces as they’ve publicly proclaimed to be a Jesus follower — nothing like it! So amazing the story God is writing in each of these lives. It’s beautiful to catch even a sliver of His work while they are with us.
The good ole fashioned fun squished in between all the other more intentional heart moments, Bible time and connecting really just rounds out the week in all the best and fullest of ways.
Thank you for choosing to come to Whisper Mountain Camp, New City and Salt and Light Youth! We love you and the opportunity to be a small part of the story God is writing in your life! See you next time, Lord willing!
