Youth Camp: When God Moves


Youth camp at our church may not look like yours.

We are located in the inner city, and welcome our inner city neighbors.

Our tagline is:  A Healing Place For a Hurting World.

We are diverse:  Hispanic, Black, and Caucasian so far.

And stiving toward the goal of every tribe and tongue, every socio-economic barrier broken.

On our youth trips, we have mohawk haircuts, tatoos, pierced whatevers, stray curse words, sagging pants, and rebellious attitudes mixed in with kids who grew up in church.

We also have very patient leaders who love kids behind all these façades.

It could be a recipe for disaster.

Or it just might be the environment where God moves.

  2. Amen a recipe for disaster – Or the way, God will move. Or maybe a recipe For the way, God will move :-) diversity in unity - that's what the church is all about. If I were 16 with a mohawk – or even a faux-hawk I'd sign up for your youth camp. this made me smile – thank you – and God bless and keep you Dawn.
